Denver has it all. Its metropolitan area is one of the fastest-growing and exciting hubs in the country. Downtown Denver has become a prime example of a well-planned urban center with restaurants and entertainment that holds up to even large cities (with the charm of smaller ones.) But step just beyond the metro area (a little bit to the west, if you will) and you find yourself in the pristine mountains of the Rockies. Yet there’s more to the metro area than just Denver: consider some of the nearby municipalities as well. Boulder and Colorado Springs are some of the most sought-after properties in the country. Boulder is just a 30 minute drive to downtown (and about the same by bus).
When considering whether to relocate your company to the Denver Metro area, rest assured it has a LOT going for it. Businesses around the country are discovering the advantages of centering their base where the talent pool is both more highly-educated, healthier and happier than almost anywhere in the U.S. In 2015, The Huffington Post cited Lincoln Property’s Top 10 cities to relocate to. Boulder, CO “the Berkeley of the Rockies” topped the list. As for the healthiest populations, Health magazine placed Colorado #8 out of the 50 states. Known for its outdoor activities (skiing, biking, camping and hiking), Colorado is a dream for HR personnel hoping for a healthy workforce and a quality-of-living carrot to use for hiring the best and the brightest from around the country.
