Communities in Colorado are consistently ranked among the top places to live in the U.S. From our majestic mountains and wide-open plains to our bustling cities and invigorating climate, Colorado is the perfect place to call home. And Colorado is ranked the fourth happiest state in the nation (WalletHub. 2014)!   

Climate: Weather doesn’t get much better than in Colorado. We have more than 300 sunny days a year.  There are days when you can experience just about every season of the year in just 1 day!   Our low-humidity summers with warm days and comfortable nights make Colorado a pleasant place to call home.  
Arts & Culture: The state is a national leader in funding for the arts, which are greatly supported by the private and nonprofit sectors. We have Top-notch museums like the Denver Art Museum, Clyfford Still Museum, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.  The Denver Performing Arts Complex is the second-largest arts campus of its kind in the nation, and it’s home to the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Opera Colorado, Denver Center Theater Company and the Colorado Ballet.   
Professional Sports Teams: Seven professional sports teams provide great year-round entertainment: Colorado Avalanche (NHL), Colorado Mammoth - Lacrosse (NLL), Colorado Rapids (MLS), Colorado Rockies  (MLB), Denver Broncos (NFL), Denver Nuggets (NBA), Denver Outlaws - Lacrosse (MLL)    
Recreation: Colorado’s climate and the splendor of both the mountains and the wide-open plains give the state’s recreational character an extraordinary sense of diversity.
Ten national parks provide an incredible variety of outdoor recreational opportunities and receive almost 5.5 million annual visitors. Colorado’s 42 state parks and numerous outdoor recreation areas provide opportunities for boating, hiking, camping, swimming, snowmobiling, bird watching, picnicking, fishing, hunting and biking. Colorado is the country’s most popular ski destination, with 26 world class ski resorts. Colorado boasts more than 35 winter recreation areas that offer snowshoeing, snowmobiling, snowcat tours, sleigh rides, ice skating, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding, and more.   

Health & Wellness: Colorado offers a very healthy environment, leading to an increase in the overall health and wellness of residents. Coloradans are always ranked among the highest in several health rankings because of their overall healthful habits:
Colorado residents have the second highest well-being in the nation (Gallup, 2013) Colorado's working-age adults are healthier than their counterparts in most other states (Colorado Health Report Card) The state has the second-lowest prevalence of hypertension and the third-lowest prevalence of diabetes Colorado's adults are more likely than adults in all but four other states to exercise Colorado has the lowest rate of adult obesity in the country (Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, 2014)
