It's no secret that a lot of out-of-staters have Colorado on their mind, whether it's for a vacation or for a move.
A recent data analysis published by Cinch Home Services showed that two spots in Colorado are among the top ten destinations for those considering a move.
Of surveyed people considering a move to one of the country's 50 most populated cities in 2021, 13.7 percent were considering Colorado Springs. This accounted for the 2nd highest percentage of could-be movers among the 50 cities, behind only Austin, which was the hopeful moving spot for 13.8 percent of participants.
Denver also made the list, a spot being considered by 10.8 percent of survey participants – 10th among the 50 most populous cities in the United States.
It's also worth noting that while Colorado Springs was popular among the general population, it was even more popular among baby boomers. Among this generation, Colorado Springs was ranked as the most desirable spot to move in the country, on the list of 17.1 percent of those considering migration. Other top spots considered by baby boomers include Jacksonville, Charlotte, Dallas, and Seattle.
When it came to why people were looking to move from their current hometown, reasons of crime rates, climate, and cost of living topped the list. While cost of living is increasing in Colorado, it remains far cheaper than in some of the major metropolitans around the country and with 300-plus days of sunshine, the weather in Colorado can be pretty great.
