I love Denver! Posted On: 4/7/2012 2:38:35 PM
First of all, I would like to say that I am glad that all those people who talk poorly of Denver have chosen to move elsewhere. We don't need you and your negativity here! I have lived in Denver, CO for 12 years and I enjoy living here very much. I disagree with the person who said that the drivers are very aggressive here. I find that the drivers here are mostly good. Yes, there are some bad apples, but they are probably from the East coast ; ) I have traveled to East coast twice and I was appalled at the aggressiveness of the drivers there especially in Washington D.C. (constant honking) and I almost got run over by an idiot driver in Boston, MA.
The climate in Denver is pretty good. We get all four seasons. It is usually not too cold in the winter and not too terribly hot in the summer. I don't know what the person was talking about when he talked about 100+ degree weather. We get that maybe 1-2 days a year. In July and August, it's usually about 90 degrees. Also, it is dry here, so it doesn't feel as cold in the winter or as hot in the summer compared to the places that have high humidity. Also, since you are at an elevation of one mile, you are exposed to more UV radiation than at the sea level, so wear sunscreen. This is one drawback to living in CO for me since I get sunburned easily.
Denver is great if you love sunny weather and doing fun outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, going to the park (we have so many!), etc. There are many free hiking places close to Denver. I have traveled to quite a few cities in the U.S. and Denver is by far my favorite. The only other place that I have visited and would consider moving to is Portland, OR. I would love to spend the rest of my life in Denver, but since I am working toward a graduate degree in a field that is already saturated in CO, I may have to relocate for work. I was told that most people who attend my graduate program want to stay and work in Denver, even if they are from another state. People are refusing to go back to their home state because they love Denver too much! That in itself says something.
