Denver-Aurora-Lakewood is a ten county metro area located in the middle of Colorado. It is the most populated metro area in Colorado, and the second most populated area in the Southwest.
The greater Denver area is located just east of the Rocky Mountains, and is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. Since 2010 the population has steadily risen, and is expected to continue to grow at a quick rate.
Denver is one of the most educated cities in the country, and is considered to be the healthiest city in America as well due to the immense recreational options the city offers. The active job market, fresh air, and good climate has caused many people to relocate to the Denver area, especially immigrants with educated backgrounds looking for work.
