Denver – What to Expect From Your Cross Country Move

 Denver is growing fast. In fact, over the last couple of years, Denver has been one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Many people have decided to call this Rocky Mountain city their home. If you are thinking about moving across country to Denver, CO, we at Cross Country Moving Company have compiled some things you should know about the city, that the 2016 Super Bowl Champions call home.

The costs of living in Denver are rapidly increasing

Don’t get us wrong – Denver is not an expensive city. Among all large cities in USA, Denver comes close to average. It cannot stand comparison to, let’s say, Los Angeles San Francisco, but living in Texas might be a little cheaper. In addition, real estate costs have been growing rapidly as well. If you are thinking about moving to Denver, you should consider hiring a moving company and starting the relocation process right away, as the prices are only going to rise.

Denver’s neighborhoods vary greatly

When choosing the right Denver neighborhood to call your home, there are many things to take into consideration. Each neighborhood is different. For example, Cap Hill is very stylish and lively. If you are young and looking to go out, party, and meet people, you might look into the Uptown area. If you are looking for a better-off neighborhood, Country Club is the place for you. So before you move from another state to Denver, you should explore these neighborhoods as much as possible.


Flat income tax

In Colorado, the state income tax revolves around 4.6 percent . However, sales taxes are a little over average. In contrast, property taxes are significantly lower than average . If you wish to calculate how high your taxes will go once you move to Denver, click here .

The weather

On average, there are less than fifty cloudy days in Denver a year. Although Denver winters are snowy, the snow usually comes in storms and doesn’t stick around for too long. Simply put, the weather in Denver is amazing, and it alone is a reason enough for you to decide on packing your things and moving to Denver.

The weather again

While, yes, the weather in Denver is amazing, it can sometimes be a little unpredictable. Due to Denver’s altitude, temperatures tend to vary quite a bit, so just because it was snowing yesterday, doesn’t mean it can’t be over seventy degrees today. If you are in the process of packing for your relocation to Denver, make sure you pack winter clothes as well.

Denver has unbelievably good food

The fact that Denver isn’t known as a city of great food is a mistake that must be corrected. It has exquisite Mexican food, as well as Vietnamese and Ethiopian cuisine themed restaurants. There’s a great steakhouse at every corner. In fact, there is even a specialty known as “Denver steak”. Here are some great Denver restaurants:
Il Posto  serves delicious traditional Italian food
Avelina  is a state-of-the-art restaurant with creative dishes.
Fish N Beer  serves mouthwatering seafood combined with the best craft beers in Denver.
Saigon Bowl  serves traditional Vietnamese food at affordable prices.
The Cherry Cricket  has delicious burgers of all shapes and sizes.

Don’t let the mild sun fool you

Due to high altitude, it is very easy to get sunburns in Denver. For this reason, if you are moving to Denver, it would be smart to carry a bottle of sunscreen everywhere with you during summer.

Denver’s parks are breathtaking

No, we are not talking about Rocky Mountain National Park only. While Rocky Mountain National Park is indisputably phenomenal, there are parks within the city which can provide you with your much needed daily dose of nature. Be it Washington Park, Confluence Park or City Park, or any other amongst the two hundred parks located in Denver, there are plenty of great locations to go for a picnic and enjoy the lovely weather.

A break from the city

Whenever you need a break from the high tempo of urban lifestyle, just head to Rocky Mountain for a skiing or rock-climbing weekend break. However, be prepared to endure unimaginable traffic on your way there and back, since many Denver residents like Rocky as well. Don’t forget to put your skis in the back of the moving truck.

Public Transport

The public transport network in Denver is not so developed, but it sure is growing. If you want to look into the public transit system more, head over to here .

Broncos are sacred

Denverites love sports. Denverites adore Broncos . They loved them before the 2016 Super Bowl, they love them even more now.

The mountain air takes getting used to

Due to elevation, the air in Denver is ‘thinner’. This means that after you move to Denver, it will probably take you a couple of days to get used to less oxygen. This also means that getting drunk is much easier.

Take a bike with you

Not only is the weather in Denver great for getting around on a bicycle, but the city also has a well-developed network of bike trails. An absolute favorite is the Cherry Creek Bike Path, stretching from the downtown area through Cherry Creek State Park. It is over twenty-four miles long. So if you are an outdoor person, moving to Denver, CO is definitely a great choice. However, taking a bottle of water with you is a must.

Denver’s breweries

Aside from Portland, Oregon, Denver has the most microbreweries in America. And we can guarantee, in the case of Denver, quantity does not compromise the quality. All true beer-lovers should seriously consider moving here. 

Marijuana is just another plant

The state of Colorado was the first one to legalize recreational use of marijuana. Most people in Denver have no problem with this.
