Photos: 25 Reasons One Site Says You Shouldn't Move to Denver
More photos below.
A few months back, we shared a post featuring twenty reasons why Denver sucks and you shouldn't move here, as seen on a poster whose creators actually love the Mile High City but don't want to see it overrun by newcomers. Likewise, Estately's recent list highlighting "25 Reasons You Should NEVER Live in Denver" features plenty of good things humorously made to seem bad. But given that Estately is a real estate blog, its goal is to convince people that they should move here -- and use the site to find a place to live upon their arrival.
Will it work? Find out by counting down the photo-illustrated top 25, featuring Estately copy. To check out the original post, click here
Number 25: Boycott Denver
Nobody should move to Denver until they bring back the old Denver Nuggets jerseys. Seriously, people need to start a boycott. Number 24: Baking Recipes Foiled
If you've finally mastered your grandmother's apple pie recipe you'd best be prepared to start from scratch. Due to the altitude, baking measurements don't quire work in Denver. You'll have to fiddle with the ratios until you get it right, or else you'll be forced to buy your baked goods from the likes of Humble Pie Store, The Denver Bread Company, Mermaids Bakery, and more. Number 23: There's No More Gold In Them Thar Hills
Do you dream of being an old time prospector living in a shack high in the mountains, finding fortune panning for gold? That ship has long since sailed. Do you have a computer science degree? That's probably a lot more lucrative right now in Denver. Number 22: Denver Omelets Are Gross
Are you sure you want to live in a city that's name is included in the worst item on Denny's menu? Sure, Denver has lots of great breakfast spots, and is famous for its breakfast burritos, and you can even have a breakfast burrito delivered to your home. But still, Denver omelets are yuck. Number 21: Pressure of Voting in a Swing State
If you live in Hawaii or Mississippi you can pretty much ignore national elections because your vote will not be deciding anything. If you live in Colorado your vote might actually impact who the next president will be. Do you really want to watch all those debates and read up on the issues? Sounds time consuming.
