Moving to Colorado

Written by Alyssa Howard,

Famous for its skiing and luxurious mountain resorts, Colorado is a winter sports fanatic's paradise. But that's not all the state has to offer. Colorado also is comprised of wild rivers and plains, which give residents an easy way to explore the outdoors in their backyards. Additionally, athletes would do well to train in some cities here because of the high elevation, which help condition a runner's lungs for competition.
