A state with extreme scerenity, significant sunshine (over 300 days of sunshine a year in Denver) and the best opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The Rocky Mountains make it the state with the highest average elevation. Denver, its capital and largest city (population 570,000), is called the “Mile High City” because it’s capitol is exactly one mile in elevation. Denver is consistently ranked among the top of America’s “fittest” , “thinnest” , and “most educated” cities. About half of the state’s 5 million residents live in the Greater Denver Metro area. Other important population centers include Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Fort Collins—all of which are located on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains. Colorado has extreme variations in climate. People in Denver can get a tan and snow ski in the same day. The enormous flat plains of eastern Colorado get huge thunderstorms in the spring and summer that make for a great lightening show and tornadoes. Colorado is where the song, America the Beautiful was written. “For purple mountains majesty above the fruited plain” describes Colorado to a tee. Beef cattle and wheat are its two largest agricultural products.
I wouldn't mind living in Colorado. It's progressive, has a reasonable cost of living and generally friendly people.

The one state in the United States where weed is legal. If you want to get some weed and camp out then Colorado is the place to be.
Guy 1: Yo man, do you know a state that contains some good weed shops.
Guy 2: Yeah man, we should go to Colorado to get some weed.
Guy 1: Oh yeah! Pack your things!

Colorado is one of the few states that is both a great place to visit and live.

Known as the 'Bi-polar' state 'cause one minute it's the next it's cold. A lot of tourist attractions and things to do all over the place. Generally nice people and people who actually WORK for what they have. Lots of skiing and snowboarding in the mountains. The capital is Denver with Elitches, as people in colorado call it, and Casa Bonita, an awesome place to go for atmosphere (although the food isn't very good). Colorado Springs, another large city, is less crowded and business-y than denver. More open space with parks, hiking, pikes peak, and Garden of the Gods. Lots of newer, more relaxed churches where the dress code is whatever you wear the rest of the week. Although Colorado doesn't have a beach, it makes up for that!
Amy: I just moved to Colorado.

Macy: That must suck!
Amy: Actually it doesn't! Everyone says bad things about it but it's actually really awesome!

Colorado is the most beautiful place anyone can go to! And some definitions say that everyone thats from Colorado either does drugs or are bratty. Well I for one live in Colorado and yeah sure there are druggies and some people that are brats here but they're everywhere.The mountains here are amazing :) Especially during a sunset it's so pretty! People in Colorado can be extremely kind (most people are) or not the nicest it just depends on the person. Theres no beach here but we have all kids of other things to do like skiing, snowboarding, and even hiking :) Its really dry here but the people who live here are used to it :) The elevation is a mile above sea level and people who come here are more likely to get alltitude sickness. So if you visit stay hidrated! The weather in Colorado changes so quickly! One minute I'll be biking with friends and an hour later it will be pouring rain or so hot we have to stay inside. But it's kinda fun never knowing whats going to happen next :) Well thats all I have to say :) Thanks for reading this :)
I love living here, everything about Colorado is amazing :) The mountains, the people, and the unpredictable weather :)
