Benefits of Living in Colorado

Are you ready to leave behind the remoteness of Upstate New York or the hustle and bustle of the New York City metropolitan area for a state known for its wide, open spaces, rugged mountain terrains and varied cities and towns? If so, you might want to consider making the move from New York out to Colorado. Colorado, also known as the Centennial State, boasts scenic landscapes, high-quality outdoorsy opportunities, a growing economy and more. If you want to make your move as easy as possible on you and your loved ones, it’s best to learn as much about your new home as you can prior to heading out. To help you get ready, here are seven things you should know about moving from New York to Colorado.

Expect Fewer Expenses and a More Affordable Lifestyle

Although Colorado has its share of pricier cities, including its capital city of Denver, the vast majority of the state offers a lower cost of living than New York State as a whole. If you were hoping a move wouldn’t burn a hole in your pocket, you can rest easy that Colorado can provide a high quality of life for an average to low price tag. Compared to New York, you may find that Colorado offers more affordable:

  • Housing
  • Food and groceries
  • Gas
  • Utilities
  • Transportation
  • Entertainment


More Sunshine, Less Rain and More Snow

You might not expect Colorado to show up at the top of sunniest-states lists, but the Centennial State boasts an average of 300 days of sunshine per year. This makes Colorado’s climate ideal for adventurous, outdoorsy go-getters, who won’t have to worry about the rain as often as they might in New York. Keep in mind, however, that parts of Colorado may also get more snow than New York. If you decide to make Colorado your new home state, you might find yourself shoveling snow in the sunshine!

Colorado Is Famous for

Outdoorsy Opportunities

For those who love spending time experiencing the great outdoors, Colorado’s offerings are tough to beat. The state is famous for its countless nature reserves, national parks and thrilling outdoor activities. Whether you choose to incorporate those activities into your everyday life or just turn to them as a way to relax on the weekends, any of the following common Colorado hobbies could quickly become a part of your lifestyle out West.

  • Hiking and jogging
  • Mountain biking
  • Swimming
  • Kayaking
  • Rock climbing
  • Skiing and snowboarding

Colorado’s Cities and Rural Areas

Feel Different From New York’s

Both New York and Colorado boast major cities as well as preserved natural and rural areas, but the feel of the cities and rural areas can differ significantly. For example, while New York is dominated by the New York City metro area, Colorado’s cities are generally smaller in size and may have more of a business feel or more of a resort feel, depending on the city. Some of Colorado’s biggest cities include:

  • Denver
  • Boulder
  • Aspen
  • Vail
  • Colorado Springs

Your Everyday Commute

Could Be Quicker, But More Car-Dependent

If you’re tired of your commute to work every day, a move to Colorado could help solve the problem. Whereas New York is often ranked towards the top of longest commute time lists, Colorado often enjoys an average, if not slightly shorter than average, commune time. One study found, for instance, that Coloradoans commute about 25 minutes. Keep in mind however, that Colorado as a whole may not offer the same extent of public transportation as New York does, which means that shorter commute may have to be spent in a car. On the bright side, a lower population density in Colorado may also mean generally lighter traffic!

The Colorado Culture

May Benefit Your Health

Health and wellness are both important parts of the general culture in Colorado, and even transplants often find themselves adopting healthy local habits over time. If you’re interested in moving somewhere where you’ll feel motivated to eat better or get in shape, Colorado could be the perfect environment for you. Coloradoans often enjoy spending time doing physical activities in the fresh air and as such have developed a reputation for caring about wellness. Additionally, the state as a whole enjoys a slightly less hectic pace of life than New York, especially New York City, and so many residents may also experience comparatively lower levels of stress. Living in Colorado could provide you with the ideal support you need to start:

  • Exercising regularly
  • Spending time outdoors
  • Eating healthful foods
  • Making time for relaxation

Colorado’s Economy Is Strong

Last but not least, Colorado’s economy is diversified and has grown increasingly strong over the years, making it ever more attractive for those looking to move to the state. Unlike New York, whose economy is largely centered on banking, entertainment and tourism, Colorado’s economy incorporates natural resources, various types of engineering and government contract jobs to perhaps a greater degree. If you have a career in any of the following sectors, you may be able to find your place comfortably among the Colorado workforce.

  • Tourism and recreation
  • Aerospace engineering and manufacturing
  • Defense and security
  • Natural resources and agriculture

Making the trek from New York to Colorado can provide you the opportunity to explore a unique part of the United States while enjoying four seasons, a strong economy and a generally healthy lifestyle. Whether you’ve already booked your moving date or are simply considering the idea of relocating to the Centennial State, understanding these key facts could help you arrive at the right decision for you and your loved ones. Be sure to keep these tidbits handy as you decide!
