Relocating to Colorado

Blog Posts

What’s good and what’s not when it comes to living in and moving to Colorado.

The Good

Amazing weather with low humidity. Hot days aren’t as hot, and cold days aren’t as cold with low humidity.

Gorgeous views!  It never gets old. Mountains, lakes, rivers, snow… so beautiful!

Lots of fun activities year-round for both adventurers and those that love culture and arts.

Economic opportunity abounds as population growth continues.

Awesome ski destinations, from small local operations to world-renowned resorts.

Over 400 craft breweries and nearly 100 craft distillers for those that love to indulge in tasting flavorful beers and craft cocktails.

Colorado is home to major league sports action, with the Denver Broncos football, Colorado Rockies baseball, Colorado Avalanche hockey, Denver Nuggets basketball, and Colorado Rapids soccer teams.

Dog-friendly Seriously dog-friendly. Many restaurants have outdoor patios that welcome your furry friend, not to mention the numerous hiking trails you and your furrever friend can enjoy together. There are also many dog training centers and opportunities to compete in a variety of dog sports.

People embrace healthy living. Whether you are low-carb, keto, or  love to be active and exercise, you’ll find what you need in Colorado and others to join you in your fitness quest. What is really great is you will find folks from a very young age to well into retirement years pursuing a variety of recreation activities.  Age is no excuse in Colorado!

The Not So Good

Wildfires and fire bans are an unfortunate part of living here. Be mindful and respectful and pay attention to current fire bans to keep our forests safe.

The cost of living is a little bit higher than the national average with the vast majority of that being attributed to housing costs. Honesty, it’s so worth it to live in paradise!

Seemingly random weather for some can be annoying. When one day’s high is 78 degrees and two days later it snows, or a hail storm suddenly blows through, or 40 mph wind gusts, the advice “carry a swimsuit in one pocket and a jacket in the other” makes perfect sense.

Rumor has it…

Winters, thought by many to be brutal, are actually fairly mild. Although consistently summer days that exceed 70 degrees only occurs in about 4 months of the year, and there are 7-8 months where snow could fall (late October to mid-May), mostly there are just 3-4 months of actual cold weather, and with skiing, snowshoeing, and other fun winter activities to enjoy, it really isn’t a negative at all!

The “natives” don’t like folks moving to Colorado. OK, sure there are some of those people a bit overly proud that they’ve lived in this great state all their life, and who can blame them; but for the most part, people here are friendly and welcoming. In fact, it’s getting pretty hard to find folks who didn’t relocate to Colorado themselves.

Legalized marijuana – both medically and recreationally, cannabis has made an impact in Colorado. There are still laws surrounding its use, so be sure to update yourself and don’t assume everyone here partakes.
