How to Feel Right at Home When Moving to Denver


Moving to a new town can be quite an adventure! When you move to a new city where you don’t know anyone and don’t know your way around, however, the experience can also be quite stressful. It can take time to settle into your new town and start to feel at home, but there are also some things you can do to expedite the process. If you are planning a move to Denver, here are a few tricks and tips you can try to feel comfortable and get to know the area.

Start Be Setting Up Your New Home and Business

Getting out to explore your new town is important to feel at home. Before you head out, however, you also need to make sure you take the time to get to know your new house. If you are still planning your move, be sure to leave a day or two free so you can unpack your boxes and start arranging your new home. While this may not seem like an important step, having boxes and clutter around your home can make you feel stressed and even depressed.

In addition to unpacking, finish setting up your utilities, especially your internet. Once all the unpacking is out of the way, it’s time to make this new space yours. Whether it’s home improvements like sprucing up your kitchen with new hardware and light fixtures, or painting a few rooms, adding a personal touch can help you feel more at home. The same holds true for your backyard. Give it some pizazz with a few well-placed chairs, some of your favorite plants, and maybe even an artistic DIY fire pit for those cold nights you know that are coming.

If you’re moving your business from out of state and want to change the state of your formation, you’ll need to dissolve your current corporation or LLC and form a new one in Colorado. The most affordable and least time-consuming way to register your business as a Colorado LLC is to work with a formation service. 

Take a Break and Meet Your Neighbors

While this may sound simple, it can be a little intimidating when you’re new in town. If you feel anxious about ringing doorbells and saying hello, try taking some walks around your neighborhood and waving at people as you see them. You can also make introducing yourself to new people less stressful by keeping those first conversations short and finding things that you may have in common with your neighbors.

You can also try visiting local parks to meet people who live in your new area. Denver has plenty of green spaces, so you should be able to find a park in your new neighborhood. Hang out with some coffee or take your dog along. Dogs can be pretty effective icebreakers when it comes to meeting new people, plus Denver is very dog-friendly. You can even meet new people at dog parks or at dog-friendly breweries in your neighborhood.

Get Out and Explore More of Your City

Once you’ve had a chance to unpack and meet people around your new home, it’s time to be more adventurous. If this is your first time in Denver, you should start by familiarizing yourself with different Denver neighborhoods so you will know your way around town. If you need to pick up some essentials for your home or yourself, Cherry Creek is your best bet since this area boasts some of the best shopping in Denver. When you’re looking for more culture and art, Five Points or one of the art districts may be your best bet. Five Points is an especially prime location if you want to get to know local baristas or take in a jazz show.Denver neighborhood street Brian Chandler realtor

Of course, no exploration of The Mile High City is complete without a little outdoor adventure! Some of the top things to do in Denver include hiking trails and taking in one of the many epic views just outside of town. You can even hike through Red Rocks and do yoga after or drive to Mt. Evans Scenic Byway. Even if you take on these activities solo, you are bound to meet interesting locals along the way.

Feeling settled in a new city can be stressful but it can also be pretty exciting. Honestly, the experience is what you make of it, so be proactive in your efforts to meet new people, get to know the area, and feel at home. Denver is such a fun city and you are going to love living here!
