Colorado’s population has reached an all-time high with about 5.8 million residents. This means that more than 1.5 million people have been added to the state in the last 20 years. 

With growth being so fast here, a lot can change in just a few months. Here are 18 things to expect when moving to Colorado.

The air in Colorado is really, really dry. You will likely have to moisturize your skin more often, and watch out for nose bleeds and sore throats.

1. The atmosphere is very dry

One day it can be hot and you’ll be wearing shorts, while the next day’s forecast will have hints of snow and you’ll need multiple layers of clothing.

2. The weather can change quickly

Good apartments for rent are hard to find, and if you see a home you want to purchase, don’t wait to put in an offer. Otherwise, you could lose out to another couple or family.

As the growth of Colorado continues to rise quickly, the roads and cities have not been able to keep up with the demand of vehicles and people.

4. Traffic and crowds are on the rise

Many of the state’s restaurants are from James Beard award winners and nominees, as well as Top Chef contestants.
