Asentiv Denver is the latest team to join this amazing community worldwide.
That old adage about living to work or working to live doesn’t apply in Colorado. Here, we’re simply living out our lives to the fullest, all at a lower cost than our coastal counterparts. Sure, our inviting business climate is hard to beat, but everything else we have to offer for arts and culture, recreation and wellness takes living and working in Colorado to a whole other level. Contrary to popular belief Colorado isn’t all snow-covered mountain peaks. We’re a diverse playground made up of flourishing urban areas, uninterrupted open spaces, scenic alpine roads, dry desert cliffs and quaint rural towns steeping in history. As a result, we’re a magnet for adrenaline junkies, foodies, art lovers, nature seekers and fitness fanatics. No matter the season, Colorado has something for everyone, with better weather and even better views.
Nicknamed the Mile High City for its 5,280-foot elevation (although officially reported as 5,279 feet), Denver’s location at the base of the Rocky Mountains provides a gateway to a slew of outdoor pursuits. 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. Denver has the largest public parks system of any U.S. city. The spectacular Rocky Mountains with their world-class ski resorts and amazing scenery are only minutes away. It’s no wonder that Colorado has the lowest obesity rate in the nation.
When they’re not energizing their bodies outside, residents energize their minds by taking in events at the Denver Performing Arts Complex—the largest such facility in the country under one roof. Metro Denver has everything you expect in a metropolitan city: from modern museums and an expansive convention center—to the country’s newest airport, sports stadiums and a zoo.
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 somewhat snowy, yet mild. However, if you like to participate in winter sports, a short drive into the mountains provides a wonderland of opportunities.
Not only do companies love the Metro Denver region – residents think it’s the best place in the world to live. In fact, Metro Denver took the No. 2 spot on the U.S. News Best Places to Live list, receiving high marks for its desirability, job market, and net migration.
Denver is one of the most progressive cities, as well as one of the best kept secrets in the United States. Living in Denver can be an extremely rewarding experience. One can visit one of Denver’s amazing neighborhoods, like Park Hill, Capital Hill, LoDo or Cherry Creek. Denver offers all the convenient, modern, and high-end amenities of any big city (there are over 4,000,000 people living in the Denver Metro area.) Denver offers exceptional shopping, dining, and cultural experiences, while also boasting the same laid-back, western attitude of any small, Rocky Mountain town. Denver has one of the most vibrant beer cultures in the U.S., and Colorado has more breweries than any other state. Denver is just hours from world class skiing/winter sports and is the gateway to many highly regarded ski resorts which include Keystone, Steamboat Springs, Aspen, Copper, and Vail. While most people visit Colorado in the winter for its unrivaled, winter sports, few people know of Denver’s unrivaled summer atmosphere. Denver boasts more sunny days than any other state in the U.S. With average temperatures in the upper seventies, and free festivals happening weekly there is no reason to spend your time alone and inside. While Denver’s winter time activities speak for themselves, Denver is the perfect place to spend your summer.
To clarify a common misconception, Denver is not a mountain town. It actually takes at least an hour to drive to the Rockies. Some might say that the city is experiencing a gold rush of a different color: green. After Colorado residents voted to legalize recreational marijuana in 2012, Denver has seen a surge in cannabis-related commerce, from dispensaries to magazines to high-tech paraphernalia like vaporizers, rolling papers, lotions and storage containers – and the industry is just gaining speed.
Founded in the mid-1800s as a mining hub during the gold rush, Denver has come a long way since its Wild West days. Over time, its citizens have evolved from gun-slinging gamblers into an easygoing crowd of ambitious, progressive-minded fitness fanatics and nature lovers who are eager to push the envelope on everything from civil rights to drug laws.
