Living in Denver

The Mile High City has blue skies, easy access to amazing skiing and the great outdoors of the Rocky Mountains. Denver has a growing economy in tech, telecom, and medical professions. With its flat landscape, urban Denver is a great city for bikers. The RTD light rail and buses serve downtown and the outlying neighborhoods and there are several express lines to Denver International Airport.

Light rail runs through the heart of downtown’s pedestrian corridor. Five Points is home to many of Denver’s famous microbreweries and has great restaurants. At City Park, you’ll find the zoo, the planetarium, and the Museum of Nature and Science.
