Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Denver is neither predominantly one nor the other.

Denver is a popular destination for single career-starters. One thing that you will notice when you are out and about town is that there is a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters out at restaurants, listening to live music, and enjoying other activities. They are a real visible part of the culture of Denver. This makes Denver a good place to live for young professionals. With so many people in this demographic, Denver presents many opportunities for single professionals to enjoy themselves, socialize, and to create lasting relationships.
Denver is a big city, and with that comes lots of benefits. One benefit is that most big cities have public transit, but Denver really shines when it comes to the extensiveness and use of its public transit system. More than most large American cities, Denver citizens use public transit daily to get to and from work. And while there are transportation options, most people in Denver ride the bus. Whereas in some cities one is destined to sit in traffic every morning to get to work and every evening to get home, in Denver a lot leave their cars at home (if they even choose to own one), and hop a ride on the bus.
