Discover the Perfect Lifestyle for Homebuyers in Colorado
Only so many locations have as much to offer as Colorado. Dominated by the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountain landscape, this state provides an undying list of activities for outdoor enthusiasts.
It doesn't matter whether you're a young professional couple or a family. Each season has something to offer. World-class ski resorts, hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, rock climbing and white-water rafting are some of the more popular pursuits.
But it's not just the state's incredible natural playground that makes it a fantastic place to live. As mentioned above, ample employment opportunities exist, particularly in the state's burgeoning tech sector. The state boasts an unemployment rate of just 2.8% at the time of writing and the country's fourth-highest labor force participation rate. Healthcare and educational institutions are top-notch, with Colorado ranked fourth nationally for quality education.
