Denver is my hometown and I couldn't be happier to be less than an hour away from being smack dab in the middle of downtown. Being away for almost a decade made it all the more sweeter to come back to Colorado. In recent years more and more people have been moving to Colorado. The city that has seen a boom in population is Denver. According to U.S News & World Report, the Mile High City of Denver come in second for the best places to live in 2017!

Beating out Denver this year for the number one spot is Austin, TX.

Denver Came in second based on score factors which include:

  • Desirability
  • Value
  • Job Market
  • Quality of Life
  • Net Migration

Another Colorado city made the list as well, Colorado Springs, which came in at 11th place. Sadly, no cities here in Northern Colorado made the list this year.
