Young Relocating Adults choose Denver as #1 "Cool City" in U.S.

The "Pedal Pub" is a hit in downtown Denver

A recent article posted by The Brookings Institution ranks the Denver metro area as the top place young adults ages from the ages of 25-34 relocated during 2008-2010, a huge change from Denver's national ranking of 12th during the previous three-year period of 2005-2007.

"This data quantifies what we have known for a long time: that Denver, particularly Downtown Denver, is a livable, vibrant community with a lot to offer people of all ages," said Tami Door, President and CEO of the Downtown Denver Partnership.

The analysis was based on average annual domestic migration data from the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey. The Brookings Institution's William H. Frey, Senior Fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program, wrote that "while young people are moving less than before," Denver ranks first for new migration among those ages 25-34 and is a place "where young people can feel connected and have attachments to colleges or universities among highly educated residents." He says Denver is among the metro areas "which are known to have a certain vibe...so-called 'cool cities.'"
Ranking after Denver are Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Austin, Washington D.C., and Portland.

So many outdoor activities for you and your friends

Everybody loves them some Denver!
