Visit, Love it, Miss it

Welcome to Colorado Luv Hub

Every time I travel outside of Colorado people are always surprised that I’m from here. Let’s just get the elephant out of the room-yes, there are black people in Colorado!

After that bit of surprise then I get the whole what do you do there? Does everyone smoke pot? No (I won’t be writing about pot-sorry peeps!) In fact, I remember during my growing up years that we always were a bit frustrated with the Cowtown identity that was so hard to shake off

The thing is we are a cowtown (state), and a tech state, green energy, Republican, Democrat, vegans, meat eaters, and adventurers.

It’s Not Just About The Mountains!

We have a diverse population that is growing all the time and an amazing spirit of innovation and a can-do attitude. There are a ton of amazing products that can trace their beginnings to Colorado-ever heard of the Denver Boot?
We are competitive but enjoy our lives. In regular conversations, you will hear about what races people are training for, the places they’ve traveled to, or the friendly bickering that happens during every sports season.

We have tons of adult’s leagues for: volleyball, bowling, kickball, and more. Coloradans really like to have fun.

If there is a reason to throw a party or have fun: We.Are.On.It! Zombies crawls, St. Patrick’s Day, the Rodeo, or even the Pueblo chile. We even like to have yoga festivals.

We Could Do Better

Colorado does have problems, though, and I will talk about them in this blog, these are issues that I feel we could be dealing with better.

Issues such as a chronic homeless problem that has become worse due to lack of affordable housing, we aren’t funding our children’s schools at rates that I’m comfortable with, we have people who feel outside of the growth and wealth that is sweeping across the state, and there are still areas that don’t have access to grocery stores.

The traffic on the highways is terrible right now as we are in a long-term expansion project.

If you don’t have a car it’s hell to get to the mountains and skiing/snowboarding is expensive to participate in if you don’t have the equipment.

I hope to be fair about how I view Colorado and encourage us to do better. I’ve had the amazing opportunity to travel all over the world, and to more than 40 of the United States. So, it’s fair to say that I’ve seen a lot of this wonderful country and for me, Colorado is the best!

My goal is to show a less slick version of the state that I live in, support small local businesses and non-profits, and get people to use, know, and love products made in Colorado, and beeline towards small local businesses.

As much as we love Colorado I’ve noticed that we have a serious lack of blogs with a general Colorado focus. There are a lot of food-focused blogs, fitness, but not general lifestyle so I hope I can help shed some light on what we are all about.

    Even though it was Silverton I fell in love with, I absolutely want to move to Colorado… I’m looking to Colorado Springs. Correct me if I’m mistaken but I’m under the impression this would be a good spot for me, as in military base close by, it has a good “flow” of tourism both winter and summer, all my kids are grown and I’m a divorceé so I would just need a quaint one bedroom that accepts pets (cats). I’m a caterer for on the border and know the springs hosts 3 locations, however I am looking to transition to leasing consultant… so, after that history lesson, lol, any helpful info on moving from Dallas to the springs I would so appreciate it!

      I think you should move where you’re drawn to…Silverton is lovely. Colorado Springs is a great town, it is a little more conservative (as you would expect) with the military and some religious organizations headquartered there. I’m not as familiar with the Springs area as I typically go for touristy things LOL! But, I do know that there are some bloggers who live in that area. I will add them to this comment as soon as I figure them out! Good luck.

    Ok, Denver and Boulder are expensive places to live. But what about smaller towns?

    1. Michelle@ColoradoLuvHub

      Hi Michael, fair question, I would say that the trend is that most towns are getting progressively more expensive. Is there a town that you’re curious about?
