  1. Beauty and High Cost of Living Not Always Paired
 - You don't have to live in a costly resort area to enjoy the beauty of Colorado. Areas like Grand Junction enjoy spectacular vistas along with a lower-than-average cost of living. 
​
  2. Health Benefits
 - The arid climate can do wonders for certain health issues, according to Healthline. If you suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and live in a high-humidity region, your doctor may recommend a warm, dry climate like parts of Colorado. It beats staying indoors to manage your symptoms! Take a trip to the Colorado desert to see how the climate affects your symptoms.

  3. Altitude Adjustment Necessary - Mountainous regions, such as Denver and Colorado Springs are high altitude. This means that it is necessary to use the alternative directions when you bake a cake. You may have to acclimate to the thinner air, but, according to The Chicago Tribune, mountain living may help you live longer: seven of the top 10 counties for longevity are in high-altitude Colorado.

  5. One Tax You Don't Have to Worry About - There is no inheritance or estate tax in Colorado. Inheritance tax in some states can take up to a 20 percent bite out of your family's inheritance, according to the Tax Foundation. In Colorado, whoever receives your inheritance will not owe taxes, whether they are immediate family or non-relatives. The state estate tax, which taxes the estate itself and often doesn't apply to estates worth less than several million dollars, is also a non-issue in Colorado.

  6. Moving Up the List - 
Colorado is one of the Top 10 fastest-growing retirement spots, according to U.S. News & World Report. Specifically, Colorado Springs, with its affordability and mountain vistas, was ranked No. 7 in 2011. However, even if you opt for Denver, Grand Junction, or Greeley, you won't be alone, as more and more retirees heard for Colorado to live out their golden years.
