Nothern Colorado Profile

Nothern Colorado Profile

The word “Colorado” elicits images of mountain ski villages, white water rafting, mountain biking, hiking and an abundance of other recreational activities.  For the last decade, the Front Range of Northern Colorado has been silently sneaking onto many national lists as one of the most desirable places to live in America. 

The variety of attractive, well planned and vibrant small cities and towns sitting at the base of the majestic Rocky Mountains, two major universities, world class artists and sculptors, one of the most educated populations in America, good schools, low crime and a mild, dry climate attract newcomers. 

The Front Range offers high quality education and health care, shorter commutes than the national average and conveniences of big city living, all with a small town atmosphere.  The abundance of preserved green space around the Front Range contributes to the beauty of the area while allowing residents to enjoy plenty of parks, lakes, hiking trails and other activities just outside their back doors. 

With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year and low humidity, Northern Colorado experiences pleasant weather year-around.  It is easy to see why many move to Northern Colorado communities to make their dreams their reality.  A large part of its appeal is its natural beauty.

There is always something happening from musical concerts, art shows, theater productions, professional hockey games, community celebrations and a multitude of conventions.
