Even better than visiting the Mile High City is calling Denver home. There is no doubt that Denver residents come full circle with a “Mountain West” lifestyle that links them to the great outdoors, where they can enjoy the area’s numerous recreational opportunities, or just sit outside and enjoy the spectacular Rocky Mountain Views.  Mix in a sunny climate (the arid conditions bring only 8 to 15 inches of annual precipitation and locals wake up to more than 300 days of sunshine a year) affordable and diverse housing options, moderate cost of living, multitude of education options, a host of cultural venues, professional sports teams, world-class shopping and dining options, and you have one of the country’s best places to live and work.
