“The drivers here are awful.”
Don’t blame us for those that camp out in the left lane, barely hitting 45 MPH on mountain passes. As crotchety natives (bumper sticker and all) will tell you, “It’s all those damn transplants.” In all actuality, though, it’s probably the Texans.
“So, where’s all this snow we’ve heard about?”
Contrary to popular opinion, we have four distinct seasons and fairly temperate conditions throughout the year. Sure, it snows from time to time. But because we’re nestled at the base of the High Plains, precipitation is a bit more modest. Like all cities along the Rockies, we are subject to sudden changes, but as they say, if you don’t like the weather, wait 10 minutes.
“But do you think Denver is like, a real city?”
Um. Yeah dude! When you weren’t looking, Denver grew up. We’ve shed our cow town image and can proudly call ourselves a true city. Come visit and see for yourself, we’ve got everything from world-class skiing and snowboarding to renowned restaurants and some of the best beers in the US. Plus we’re super close to Boulder. You know, if you want something a little less city.
