Surprise! Everyone Wants to Live in Denver

If you live in Denver, you know that the city is becoming more and more popular for people to move to. In a recent nationwide survey compiled by the real estate website, Denver is the most popular place to move in the United States, according to 1,000 respondents.

The respondents chose between six major U.S. cities — Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Miami — 40 percent of respondents (a full 18 percentage points over the runner-up, Miami) said that they'd most want to move to Denver.

The question was included in a general survey about moving trends, and it underscores other rankings we've reported on; in 2016, U.S. News and World Report listed Denver as its No. 1 place to live in the United States by factoring in things like Denver's job market, quality of life, net migration, and even residents' access to marijuana. 

According to Nicole Sparks, a spokeswoman for, the survey narrowed in on the six cities after the site reviewed U.S. Census data reports about where Millennials are moving and analysis about which metro areas in the U.S. are getting the most press for being “hot cities.”

Sparks explained that the 1,000 respondents were chosen randomly through Google's survey tool and represent a broad spectrum of geographic locations throughout the United States. About half of the respondents are male and half are female, and they represent different age ranges (18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64 and 65+).
