The Results are In: Colorado is One of the Best Places to Live
We talk a lot about how great it is to live in Colorado. Whether showing our hometown love for Montrose (or lack thereof, in some cases), highlighting the small-town charm of Delta, or just looking for something fun to do in Telluride, we wear our love for our state on our sleeves, here. There's precisely zero shame in our game.
Now, I will freely admit that we can be biased toward the Centennial state, considering the fact that we actually live here, but that doesn't mean that what we're saying isn't true. In fact, it's beginning to sound like the rest of the country is starting to catch on that Colorado is the place to be in the USA.
I'm going to call it right now: Colorado is now, officially, one of the best places to live in the United States. When we usually say something like that, it's just hyperbole, but we actually have some stats to back us up this time. Not one, not two, but three Colorado cities have been named among the best places to live in the country, and two of those are in the top ten. I've seen a lot of awards shows, and when they keep calling your name, it usually means you're on to something.
Having 3 spots on the annual ranking from U.S. News & World Report? That's nothing to sneeze at, and we should all be proud of our Colorado neighbors. Let's take a quick victory lap and look at our three representatives for 2023:
