Are you looking for a variety of outdoor activities and stunning scenery? Denver may be the retirement city you've been looking for!

If you’re looking for a 55+ community in Denver, Colorado, there are plenty to choose from, including some near water and with Rocky Mountain views. Some are close to Downtown Denver, some are close to Denver International Airport, and some have their own golf courses.

Denver is Colorado’s largest city and capital. Its elevation close to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains gives it the nickname of the Mile High City. In 2016, it was designated the best place to live in the U.S. by the U.S. News and World Report.

Denver has a notoriously variable climate, with over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year. Snow can fall any time from late fall through to early spring, although days with heavy snow can be immediately followed by days that are warm and sunny. Temperatures can fall to well below freezing and rise to over 100 degrees in the summer.

Denver especially appeals to lovers of the great outdoors, as it’s easy to get out of the city and quickly be in the Rocky Mountains enjoying hiking, biking, horse-riding, skiing, kayaking, and other outdoor activities. It’s also very centrally located, so you can take a quick road trip north into Wyoming, south into New Mexico, east into Nebraska, or west into Utah.

Denver is also full of cultural attractions, with numerous museums, theaters, and festivals. It’s known for its breweries, and it’s home to the annual Great American Beer Festival. On the sporting side, it’s one of only ten U.S. cities to have five major sports teams.

If this sounds like your ideal city for retirement, check out these 55+ communities in Denver, Colorado.
