As a long-time Denver, CO resident, watching this video brought back some of the great reasons why I love living in this area…

Seriously…who would NOT want to at least visit Denver after watching that?! The scenery, the weather, the culture, the history…all combine to make this a wonderful area in which to live. The video repeats the statistic that Denver has over 300 days of sunshine each year, and once you live here…you realize that this is no exaggeration. Kids who are raised here, and people who have moved from other areas end up LOVING rain days…just because they are so rare. Add a little thunder and lightning, and we are happy, happy, happy!

Add our AWESOME professional sports teams to the mix – Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rockies, Denver Nuggets, Denver Outlaws, Colorado Mammoth, Colorado Rapids – and it’s the icing on the cake.

What’s your favorite thing about living in or visiting Denver?

A recent Forbes magazine study, America’s Best Cities For Young Professionals, looked at population, unemployment, average salaries and cost of living to come up with a list of cities where ‘ambitious college grads’ have the best chance at succeeding.  The Mile High City came out great:

Denver ranks No. 8 on this year’s Forbes list of the best large cities where a recent college graduate can get a strong start on a high-powered career. The magazine and website rate Denver highest for having a relatively low unemployment rate and for higher-than-average income. It ranks lowest for its lack of large locally based companies.

Houston, Washington D.C. and Minneapolis took the top three spots…..however, we think that the quality of life in Colorado is so much better that we should really be #1.

jump for happinessAccording to a study conducted by Apartments.com and CBCampus.com, Denver ranks as #8 in their list of the 10 best cities in the U.S. for college grads to live affordably and find a job.

To develop the top 10 rankings, the study identified U.S. cities that have the highest concentration of young adults (age 20 – 24).  The stats were taken from the U.S. Census Bureau 2006 data.  Next, they looked at CBcampus.com for the number of available jobs requiring less than one year of experience in each city.  The final factor considered was the  average cost of rent for a one bedroom apartment from Apartments.com.

This ranking comes on the heels of Forbes.com‘s finding that Denver is one of the top relocation destinations in the country earlier this year.
