Denver is among the 5 best cities in American to live for young adults, says Kiplinger's Personal Finance Report on Wednesday. In addition to a beautiful "outdoors-y" culture and over 300 days of sunshine a year, which young adults love (just go to Wash Park on a Saturday and watch thousands of young adults barbeque, play volleyball, soccer, football, bag toss....you name it!), but a sunny employment outlook thanks to hiring in construction, retail, and hospitality, and affordable apartments.
Top employers include Colorado State Government, HealthOne, Exempla Healthcare and Lockheed Martin, the report said. It also noted that Denver has given rise to big-time startups, such as Frontier Airlines and Associated Content, which Yahoo "scooped up in 2010."
For apartment hunters on a budget, the historic Five Points neighborhood and the Baker area trade ongoing revitalization for rents as low as $700 monthly for one bedroom.
Once again, Denver is the place to be!
