The city for fit, young professionals who love books, live music, and brews -- both the caffeinated and micro variety.
The Mile High City has enough honors under its cowboy belt to fill a top ten list all by itself. It gets kudos for being fun and well-read, and with the proximity to hiking and skiing in the Rockies, it also ranks as one of the fittest. The people of Denver are a laid back bunch, but they take their coffee, and their microbrews seriously. In fact, one of the cofounders of Denver's first microbrewery, John Hickenlooper, went on to become the mayor of Denver, and is now the state's governor.
