Denver Business Journal and Portfolio.com reported the 67 top cities for quality of life and Denver was #6! The report uses 20 different factors, most of which are economic, to gauge quality of life. Some of these factors include population growth, education level, mortgage and rent affordability, home value and shortest commute time. The cities that scored higher were: Raleigh, N.C., Washington, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Bridgeport-Stamford, CT and Salt Lake City. The report focuses mostly on economic factors and does not take into consideration things like climate, recreational amenities, pollution levels and crime rates. I’m sure Denver would rank even higher if those factors were also considered. To read the story, click here.
