Denver has been undergoing an amazing transition over the last twenty years, and people all across the country are finally starting to notice!  We’re growing more rapidly than almost anywhere in the country.  Our real estate market is the hottest in the country.  Our dining scene has gone from Good to phenomenal.  Unemployment is lower here than any large US city.

It brings me great joy to write about all of the Good things going on in Denver, and, last week, the New York Times jumped on the bandwagon.  The article describes Denver as being on the “sunny side of the economy” due to our our low unemployment rate, economic diversification, real estate development, start-up energy, investments in infrastructure, prevalence of research and skilled labor, lifestyle, and more.  You can find the full article here, and I encourage everyone to read it!

Forbes also recently featured an article called “5 Reasons You Should Plan a Trip to Denver Right Now,” citing the redevelopment of Union Station, the fantastic food, the updated Ritz Carlton hotel and spa, the Good beer, and the trendy marketplaces.  That article can be found here.

And last month, US News & World Report named Denver the “Best Place to Live” in the entire US.  The study compared American cities’ quality of life, job market, value of living there, and people’s desire to live there.  An article about it in the Denver Business Journal can be found here, and here is a link to ranking page.

While in some ways it is bittersweet that Denver is no longer America’s best kept secret, the recognition the city is getting is well deserved.  We are so fortunate to live here, and I’m very excited by what is still yet to come!  Thanks to everyone who is making Denver such a great place to live, work, and play!
