Our biggest event of the year is October 7—Prairie Harvest Fest!
Here's your go-to guide for a smooth transition.
Colorado is famously known as the “Centennial State” because it gained statehood 100 years after the signing of the nation's Declaration of Independence. But if we are being honest, we like to call it the Sunshine State (sorry, Florida). Why? Because Colorado is sunny over 300 days of the year! And in addition to great weather, this mountain state has so much to offer locals and new residents alike.
If you’re considering relocating to the Denver Metro area, we highly recommend you start making a bucket list! Denver is known as the Mile High City and as a place where outdoor adventure meets urban sophistication, and there’s just no other place like it!

As a new Colorado resident, you’re probably excited to explore the great outdoors, and hiking is a great way to do it! Ranging from easy to difficult, these Day Hikes Near Denver are a few of our favorites.
Did you know that over half of the states in the U.S. don’t even have professional sports teams? Colorado has six! The Denver Broncos, The Denver Nuggets, The Colorado Rockies, The Colorado Rapids, The Colorado Mammoth, and the Colorado Avalanche games are fun for the whole family!
Foodies rejoice — The Denver Metro area (specifically Aurora) is a hotspot for incredible food from both local and world-renowned chefs!
