What Bert Has To Say About Denver-Aurora-Lakewood Metro Area

Denver is the commercial, financial, industrial, and government center for Colorado and a seven-state region of Rocky Mountain and western Plains states. The city and its surrounding area continue to be one of our favorite large cities, and the list of reasons is large; however, crowding and growth is taking its toll.
