Colorado is home to one of the fittest populations in the US. What are all these people doing to stay active and healthy? Just about any outdoor activity you can think of, including skiing, boarding, hiking, biking, kayaking, camping and climbing.
The Rocky Mountains are just minutes away and offer an amazing diversity of mountain peaks and valleys, forests and rivers, as well as old mining and ghost towns. Denver also offers outstanding diversity in culture, music, nightlife, food, art and architecture along with major professional sports teams including football, baseball, hockey, soccer and basketball.
The Denver metropolitan area boasts more days of sunshine than San Diego while staying cool and comfortable on summer evenings. In the spring and fall, Denver is particularly delightful as beautiful wildflowers and foliage abound. Winters in the city are snowy yet mild; however, if you like to participate in winter sports, a short drive into the mountains provides a wonderland of opportunities.
