Breathtaking mountains, awesome breweries, great music, and fantastic restaurant are only some of the reasons why Denver was ranked the number one city to live in (according to US News & World Report rankings). Here are ten reasons why we’re proud to live in the Mile-High city.

1. Red Rocks

Nestled between walls of incredible red stone, Red Rocks is hands down one of the best concert venues in the country. Any concert you see at Red Rocks will be an experience you won’t forget.

2. We get more sunshine than most of the U.S.

Okay, so the “300 days of sunshine” Denver is supposed to get every year is a myth (Denver Westword debunked this with a climatologist a few years ago), but the 150 days or so we do get is pretty good compared to the rest of the country.

3. We have actual chile

Alright, we’re no Hatch, New Mexico, but it is really easy to find awesome chile. You can get almost anything smothered in chile here and expect it to be excellent.

4. Rocky Mountain National Park

The Rocky Mountain National Park is by far one of the best National Parks in the country and is only a few hours away. Home to beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife, Rocky Mountain National Park provides another great reason to get outside.

5. Everyone is incredibly active

Just about everyone in Denver is fit and in shape, which makes sense considering we consistently rank in the top ten fittest cities every year. Health plays an important role here, and it’s actually pretty motivating.

6. The sidewalks don’t roll up at 7 PM

Downtown Denver has a great night-life scene that’s unique to the city itself. You can always find something to do at any hour here (or worst case just head to Breakfast King).

7. We have an amazing music scene

Whether you like jazz or heavy metal, you’re bound to find a music venue here that really suits your style. Plus, there are tons of little cafes around that showcase hidden local talents.

8. Money is literally made here

The U.S. Mint, located downtown, has been printing money since 1906. You can stop by for a tour to see the money being printed yourself.

9. Casa Bonita

If you haven’t been to Casa Bonita, you’re seriously missing out. The super cheesy attraction/restaurant is famous for its cliff divers and notoriously terrible food, but it’s definitely worth a visit.

10. Our killer breweries

The original home to Coors brewery, Denver beer has evolved and become one of the largest craft brewery and microbrewery cities in the country. Renegade Brewing Company, located downtown, is one of the best in town.
