The Newcomer’s Guide to Denver

Your guide to moving to and learning to love Denver.


We’ve spent nearly three decades covering the Mile High City and, we’ve got to admit, we’re still smitten with this evolving city. From the recent Black Lives Matter protests that instigated unprecedented changes to law enforcement to the group of activists who shut down traffic in 1978 and helped change the world, Denver is a place that inspires transformation. 

It is also a place that encourages innovation (check out our craft beer scene) with award-winning chefs and a community of artists and makers and musicians that continues to evolve. In short, there’s a lot going on. 

So, we put together this list of some of our greatest hits. Think of it as our care package to you with information you need to get acclimated to your new home.
