It was a bit of a surprise to see Denver as the number one city to which Americans would like to move (see Pew poll).
A Pew poll conducted last October showed nearly half the people in the country would prefer a different city from the one where they currently live, and Denver was their top pick for a prospective move. Denver’s strengths are climate, recreational activities, friendly people and a good family environment.
Denver beat out San Diego, Phoenix, Seattle and Tampa.
Although Denver has long been a popular destination for transplants, this recent surge is no doubt due to last summer’s Democratic National Convention, raising the city’s visibility worldwide.
