Long Distance Movers in Colorado, CO
Colorado frequently ranks as one of the best places to live in the United States. These lists consider the Centennial State a good place to raise a family, work and to just enjoy life.
Whether enjoying yourself means skiing, golfing, boating, camping or hiking, the climate almost always cooperates. Severe elevation changes create snowy winters in the mountains and dry weather in the lower land. Low-humidity summers grace residents with warm days and comfortable nights. The weather makes spending time at one of the ten national parks, 42 state parks or numerous ski resorts almost an imperative.
That''s one of the reasons Coloradans take better care of their health than most of the U.S. According to the Colorado Health Report Card, the state has the lowest rate of obesity in the nation and the second lowest incidence of hypertension.
They don''t get too anxious watching their professional sports teams - the Colorado Rockies Major League Baseball team and the Denver Broncos National Football League team. When not cheering on their favorite sports team or engaging in outdoor sports, Coloradans work.
According to a 2013 Forbes report, Centennial State workers average $48,110 a year.
You might find residents employed in agriculture, tourism, gold or silver mining, oil, finance or manufacturing. Those are the main industries in the state. The largest employers include University of Colorado at Boulder, Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Peterson Air Force Base, Denver International Airport, Rooftop Restorations and Western Union.
To show just how progressive Colorado is, there''s no law there against ripping the tags off pillows or mattresses.
