Newcomer Information

A list of important information for newcomers to Denver

With 300 annual days of sunshine, the nation’s largest public park system, a thriving economic and business climate, and plenty of opportunities for skiing, hiking, mountain biking, river rafting, and more, it’s no wonder that so many families choose to move to metro Denver each year.

Colorado’s historic focus on low taxes, coupled with metro Denver’s high household incomes, has kept the region’s cost of living at or near the national average. Metro Denver ranks slightly above the national average for cost of living, but well below many other major cities. Metro Denver’s utility rates are also among the lowest of any major U.S. city.

The information we’ve compiled will help those new to Denver make a smooth transition, so you can start to enjoy all that the Mile High City has to offer.
