I am a Missourian born and raised, spent some time in Florida and a few years in Kansas before moving here. And I'll probably never leave. Denver's everything a city is supposed to be but with half the headaches. You can walk everywhere. The people are friendly and laid back. And when you want nature, it's a half-hour drive away.
Airbnb provides such an opportunity, not only to make a few bucks when not in my place but also to offer a hub from which others can explore the city I love.
