ne look, and you’ll want to stay. Denver has the kind of enviable quality of life that
makes it one of the best places in the United States to live and work—and all you
have to do is just step outside. With a panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains, the
nation’s largest public park system and more than 300 days of sunshine a year, it’s no surprise that Denver
consistently tops the lists of most livable cities.
Recreation and an active lifestyle beckon. Metro Denver’s young, active residents are among the
nation’s healthiest. Area residents dabble in everything from skiing to hiking, mountain biking to river
rafting. Perhaps that’s why the area is ranked as one of the fittest cities in the country. When they’re
not enjoying the region’s great outdoors, citizens take advantage of championship sports teams and
cultural attractions, such as events at the Denver Performing Arts Complex—the largest such facility
outside of New York City.
