Overview of Denver
Denver consistently gets ranked as one of the country's best cities to live. Why? Maybe because it sits at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, offering residents access to an outsized wonderland of outdoor entertainments. Or maybe it's the frontier aura that keeps the Mile High City feeling rugged and ready to roll. Rent yourself one of many Denver apartments and you just might learn to love the rarified air in this all-American outpost.
Living in Denver
Denver first came to life during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. That was in 1858. Prospectors staked out land here and built their ramshackle homes out of felled timber. Nascent Denver didn't have an easy start of it, though. Residents repelled Confederate Rebels from Texas during the Civil War, survived a terrible fire in 1863, and held out through a war with local tribes. Finally, this frontier town came into its own, becoming the territorial capitol in 1867. Since then, Denver has grown into a top-notch metropolis. This city may represent the perfect junction between urban excellence and outdoor adventure.
If you're new to the Mile-High City, you'll want to get a sense of what living here looks like. Towards the center of town, Denver neighborhoods are denser, older, and you'll see more brick. As you travel towards the suburbs, the city becomes more modern. Check out LoDo, short for "Lower Downtown," with its trendy bars and boutiques, catch some live music in Baker, or enjoy a leisurely meal in Highlands-ranked one of the country's best neighborhoods by Men's Journal.
Work & Study in Denver
If you're coming to Denver in search of employment, you'll have a solid range of options. This city, due to its central geographic position, makes a natural base for storage and distribution industries. That means trade is big in and out of Denver and apartments in Denver are built to support this level of commerce. Other key sectors in the city include mining and energy. Qwest, Molson Coors Brewing Company, and Chipotle Mexican Grill are just a few of Denver's major employers.
For prospective students, the private University of Denver holds the title as the oldest school in the region. It was built in 1864. Other institutes of higher education in the city include the University of Colorado Denver, Johnson & Wales University, and Regis University.
Cost of Living in Denver
Living in Denver will cost you a bit more than the national average. Vacancy rates in the city are the lowest they've been for a while and demand keeps pushing rents up. In 2011, only around five percent of residential properties in Denver were vacant. If you're on a tight budget, remember that Denver's the kind of city where many of your entertainment options will be found out in the wild-and they won't cost much. That helps conserve funds some. The average two-bedroom apartments in Denver rent for $1,279 a month.
Denver Attractions & Entertainment
If you're looking for a day out in Denver, you'll be well entertained both in and out of the city. For an urban adventure, check out the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, or the shopping and dining in Larimer Square. For live music, there's the stunning, natural Red Rocks Amphitheater, the Fillmore, and other excellent venues. You can take a tour at the Coors Brewery or at the New Belgium Brewing Company, but remember to drink plenty of water if you're imbibing. High altitude can help you earn a hangover.
Denver is one of the few U.S. cities fielding professional teams in all four major American sports. You've got the Denver Broncos, the Colorado Rockies, the Colorado Avalanche, and the Denver Nuggets in town. If you're looking to get into the great outdoors, you won't have to go far to find skiing, kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, or even just a majestic view through the mountains.
Denver Special Events
Throughout the year, Denver's unique culture comes through via fantastic festivals and annual events. This is one of the United States' biggest cities for brewing, so you won't want to miss the Great American Beer Festival in the fall. The National Western Stock Show, another big draw, harkens back to when Denver operated as a major livestock center. For some of the vibrant Mexican culture here, try Cinco de Mayo or Dia de los Muertos celebrations. You can also just chow down on some distinctive Denver red or green chile or order a Denver omelet.
