At one time, I was living on the East Coast and enjoying raising a family in a relatively small community. It was an enjoyable way to live but I really wanted to get more out of life. That is when I set my sights to the West and decided that I would live in the state of Colorado. Since that time, I have enjoyed much of what the state has to offer and I would like to share my experience so that you can take advantage of those benefits as well.
Like many people who moved to Colorado, I decided to settle into the area of Denver. I didn’t live right inside of the city itself but I chose a small, gated community that was on the outside of the city. When I first moved there, however, I rented an apartment so that I could get a feel of what it had to offer. I wanted to make sure that I was comfortable with my new job and that my children were comfortable with the school system. It didn’t take very long before my lease was up and I began looking for a piece of property.
Like many people, I usually spend my time at home when I am not working or running errands. Living in Colorado is much like living in any other state when you are enjoying it from the inside of your house. It is once you step out of the house, however, that the magic really begins to happen. Since I live close to Denver, I take advantage of the city quite often. I eat at nice restaurants, take in a show every once in a while and enjoy some of the shopping that the city has to offer.
Another benefit that I really enjoy about living in the area are the Rocky Mountains. They are absolutely beautiful to see, regardless of whether you are actually standing in the middle of them or if you are simply looking at them from your living room window. There is so much to do when it comes to the mountains that you can really keep busy 365 days a year. You will want to take advantage of that benefit of living in Colorado as well. It is just another perk that makes it one of the greatest states to live in the United States of America.
