Colorado

Imagine basking in the gorgeous sunshine 300 days a year; hiking, skiing, snowboarding, camping, boating, fishing, kayaking and paragliding year-round; enjoying amazing food and drinks (have you heard of the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen yet?); and being immersed in the arts at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, Aspen Art Museum, Denver Art Museum and Vail International Dance Festival. Sounds pretty appealing, doesn’t it? Well, the good news is this is how people spend their days in Colorado ­– and yes, there’s still plenty of room here for you.

Wondering about jobs? The Centennial State has you covered, whether you are starting a new career, growing an existing one, or looking to launch your own company. Not only do a number of industries, including health care, military, aerospace, biotech, agriculture, culinary, tourism and logistics, have a heavy presence here, but the resources available for entrepreneurs are vast.

And to top everything off, this state celebrates some pretty fun traditions that date back to the Wild West – think everything from grape stomping at the Colorado Mountain Winefest to chowing down on a juicy steak at The Buckhorn Exchange, a restaurant that started serving hungry Coloradans in 1893.
