It's relaxing, comfortable and manageable.
When driving into Denver or Boulder from our international airport, one of the first things that grabs your attention is the vastness of the high plains. Then you experience the view of the incredible Colorado Front Range, which stretches North to South for hundreds of miles. CableLabs sits right at its base, and the view can be a definite distraction while driving to work.
Then there's the weather here. It's sunny a lot, the snow doesn't stick around very long-usually-and the lack of humidity makes for welcome outdoor adventures. Did you know we have more sunny days than San Diego? Our skies are blue and seem to go on forever.
When you're not in the office, you can generally find things to do outside to entertain yourself. Climb a mountain, for example. Colorado has 54 peaks over 14,000 feet, and a lot of others that make for good climbs as well. There's also world-class hiking, biking, rafting, camping, and golfing close by. Athletes and climbers come here from around the world to train in our altitude and to enjoy the great weather and great outdoors. Skiing and snow sports are less than an hour away.
The local population is quite active as well. However, if you prefer to enjoy your sports from the couch, a bar stool, or a stadium seat, Denver offers Rockies baseball, Avalanche hockey, Rapids soccer, Nuggets basketball, Broncos football, and Mammoth lacrosse. Those are just the teams at the national professional sports league levels.
Thanks to a strong cultural community, the "C" in Colorado now stands for culture, as well as cowboy. So, along with the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo, we have the Denver Art Museum, Colorado Symphony, Colorado Ballet, Opera Colorado and an amazing Performing Arts Complex hosting national and regional theatre productions. From Arts to Zoo, there are plenty of options for experiencing Denver's many attractions and lively neighborhoods.
It's definitely different here. All that natural beauty, good weather, and active lifestyle tends to affect a person's attitude.
