Would you love it if loads of people suddenly decided to relocate to Denver? If not, we have some bad news for you: The folks at the real estate website Movoto have just published "30 Reasons You Need to Move to Denver," which lays out a pretty damn good argument for heading this way immediately.

Continue to start counting down all thirty, complete with our photos supplementing headlines and text by Movoto contributor Jennifer Eakins. Check them out below.

30. There's a Demon Blue Horse to Welcome You While some call the blue horse statue located outside of Denver International Airport art, others are calling for its destruction. It has fiery red eyes and, to be honest, is kinda creepy. There was even a grassroots Facebook campaign to remove it, stating that it brings bad luck to the city. 29. Altitude Television Denver has its very own local sports television station, Altitude Sports & Entertainment. It is actually owned by the same person as the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and the Colorado Rapids, the major league soccer team in town. Therefore, you get the best local coverage of all the teams. 28. My Brother's Bar This Denver staple is so popular and has been around for so long that it doesn't even need a sign to let people know what it is. The food is incredible and so is the patio in the summertime. Beatniks like Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady used this bar as a hangout and it is known as the oldest bar in Denver. 27. Denver Nature and Science Museum This fun and highly educational museum covers everything from dinosaurs to the human body. It has an in house IMAX theater with rotating films as well. You will also find a kids zone where your little ones can experiment and play. 26. Rocky Mountain National Park America's national parks are truly awe inspiring and are a must-see. The beauty of the topography and animals in their natural habitat bring tourists from all over the world. Rocky Mountain National Park is a few short hours by car from Denver and can be accessed from either Estes Park or Grand Lake.
