West Denver and surrounding areas boast 300 days of sunshine each year. That's more annual hours of sun than San Diego or Miami Beach. Perhaps this is the reason why residents of West Denver enjoy such active lifestyles. With Colorado's breathtaking landscape of towering mountains and desert plains, and modern amusement parks and facilities, you could try a new recreational activity each of those 300 days!
Denver's world-class ski resorts are the main draw for tourists each winter, but the area's proliferation of four-season recreational pursuits keep residents and tourists alike active all year round. Golf enthusiasts find endless ways to practice their game and Denver has the nation's largest city park system, with more than 200 parks within city limits and 20,000 acres of parks in the nearby mountains. The Denver Zoo continues to grow and amaze thousands of guests each day, recently adding the Predator Ridge exhibit. Dozens of shopping centers, quaint local artisan shops as well as major retailers such as Neiman Marcus and Tiffany's provide all the delights an avid shopper could desire. You can visit a Dude Ranch or an aquarium, take in a game of any of all four major league sports, attend the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, go whitewater rafting, take a guided tour of a historic home or building, go fly fishing, camping, hiking or attend one of many annual festivals and events.
Denver's nightlife as well is vibrant and ever changing. The second-largest performing arts center in the nation features presentations every night of the week, with worldwide theater and concert tours regularly stopping in to perform for Denver locals. There are literally thousands of restaurants to choose from, where innovative chefs provide eclectic cuisine in the atmosphere to suit your mood. Native dishes such as buffalo burgers and rattlesnake tails are on many of the menus, as well as locally brewed beer. Bars, blues halls, and dance clubs abound.
It is easy to see why West Denver is such a popular place to live. With a high employment rate as well as limitless sources of entertainment and relaxation all within reach of an affordable home in a safe, friendly neighborhood, why would you want to live anywhere else?
