If you want a change of pace, or if you are looking to relocate, you are probably looking at homes for sale in other states. If that is the case, you may want to look at homes for sale in Denver, Colorado. Here are four really good reasons for moving to the Mile High City.
There Are Some Excellent Ski Resorts Close By
If you love to ski, Denver is a good place to live. Situated at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, there are a handful of ski resorts within a short driving distance of the city limits. While they are not open all year round (that is a myth), the resorts still offer some excellent benefits to ski club members and people who love to ski. The resorts themselves are not in Denver, but on the mountains/in the mountains nearby.
The Public Transit System Includes an Affordable, Above-Ground Railway System
Whether you like New York City's subway system or prefer Chicago's "El"-train, the RTD Light Rail train system in Denver should please you either way. It is similar to a subway system, but operates mostly at ground level. It is powered by cables overhead, rather than underneath, and offers numerous stops and connections on every route. Taking the RTD, as it is affectionately called by Denver citizens, is an extremely affordable and easy way to get around the city, as well as getting to and from the airport to your destinations. You really do not need a car unless you are too far from the nearest train platform, and that is unlikely.
Denver Offers a Very Diverse Population and Diverse Cultural Experiences
Almost a fourth of the people living in Denver are Hispanic, but the remaining ethnicities represent peoples of all nations and cultures, including Russian, Asian, Irish, Italian and French peoples. While the percentages of these diverse groups is smaller than that in New York City or Chicago, you may still get the sense that you are living in a larger, culturally diverse city. Additionally, there are numerous ethnic celebrations and cultural events all year long.
