With breathtaking mountains, abundant recreational activities, and overall high quality of life, many people from California are choosing to relocate to Colorado.

The Centennial State boasts plains, sprawling urban cities, deserts and of course, the Rocky Mountains – there is something for everyone in Colorado. Natural beauty is a big driving force behind why people are choosing to live there. The mountains, lakes, rivers and national parks all promise excitement to nature lovers, while the many cities appeal to those who prefer an urban lifestyle.

While the cost of living in Colorado is 31% higher than the national average, it is still lower than that of California, which sits at about 40% higher than the national average. New homes in Colorado are higher than in other states, but rental prices and utility costs are average if not lower.

Colorado ranks as one of the top 10 providers of medical care in the country, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as well as having one of the lowest rates of income taxes and property taxes in the country.

Even throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, Colorado has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, thanks to its steady economic growth.

Planning Your Move to Colorado

Colorado is a great place for people who want to be surrounded by natural beauty and exciting cities, so it’s no wonder people are leaving the Golden State to move there.

When you’re planning your move to Colorado, you won’t need any moving permits, but you should check local parking restrictions. In some cities, you might get a ticket for having a moving truck outside your building for an extended period.

If you’re moving to Colorado during the winter months, you should get your car winterized by a professional mechanic before leaving California. Colorado weather can change quickly, so you should always have a toolbox, first-aid kit, and emergency items (food and blankets, for example) in the event you get stranded.

Colorado’s Official State Web Portal offers many answers to questions you may have about moving to the state regarding everything from changing your address to information about toll roads.
