Sure, sure — the legalization of marijuana gives our residents the recreational choice to get pretty “high” but there’s another important reason people choose to move here. We’re literally home to cities with some of the highest altitudes in the country.

We think the outdoor-centric lifestyle is one of the primary reasons people choose to relocate and stay in Colorado. Denver and Boulder alone keep rising higher and higher on the list of best places to live for work/life balance. And we understand why. The beautiful backdrop is more than a gorgeous view, it’s home to plenty of activities that can be enjoyed all year long.

The best part is, you can live outside the popular metropolises while still havingaccess to all the action in the city center. We’ve uncovered the highest cities in Colorado that put the outdoor recreation in your backyard with availability to high-speed internet, coworking spaces, and meetups for tech professionals.
