What is the first thing you think of when you think of Colorado? Skiing? The Broncos? Movoto.com recently published their list of "10 things Denverites know to be true," and you can bet the Broncos, snow and a few others are on there. What do you think of Movoto.com's list?

Let us know in the comments which truths they left out about the Mile High City.

10. In Denver "haute couture" translates to North Face
You could probably describe the style in Denver as...outdoorsy. If wicks moisture, enhances performance or prevents chafing Denverites want to put it on their bodies. Let's just say they could single-handedly keep the microfleece industry afloat.
But to be fair Denverites are a very active people, so all that wicking and chafe resistance comes in handy.

9. In the suburbs you're S.O.L. without an SUV

It's not hard to find a mom in Lululemon yoga pants driving her kids back and forth to soccer practice in her SUV. If you're in the center the city is pretty walkable, but the car is totally necessary when you live in the 'burbs. If you're sticking to downtown, the city's bike sharing program makes it easy to get around, while being green--another thing Denverites can't get enough of.

8. Native Denverite? Never heard of it.

Most people in Denver are transplants, usually from states like Texas or California. But who can blame them? This place has the low taxes Californians want and the cooler weather Texans don't know they want, yet.

Read on for more of Movoto's top 10 things Denverites know to be true.

He lost a lot of votes by attacking a harmless substance, way to go Hickenpooper. *takes hit from a bong holds in deep* I know he lost my vote, and now I'm drinking Shiner Bock, and Platinum. -_-

Why reference a company like North Face that's not even from Colorado?

People in all states wear north face. It's a big company that sells good clothes. Why hate on people? They moved here, so they must find the city and state as cool as natives by luck of birth do. Is being native the new black?

I think it hilarious all these "natives" are white Anglo Americans. How native are you?

I was born and raised in CO and still live here and have never owned a north face jacket.....Arcteryx is were it's at. No slave shit here!

Denver a live and let live Libertarian society? Wait, let me stop laughing, I just realized this wasn't an Onion article. Denver makes a hobby out of trying to tell the rest of the state what we should do! I'm thinking the MJ is clouding someones brain. And guns? Most Denverites faint at the sight, and have their nose so far up Bloombergs butt trying to take them away from the rest of us they haven't noticed all the anti gun politicians being recalled and are shooting themselves in the foot politically. Ha! Denver also seems to have forgotten that CO consistently repeals their gun laws, and makes state laws nullifying them. As far as the Broncos? Worst things that ever happened was tearing down the old Mile High and building Invesco at the taxpayers expense so the rich people could have more private boxes, and Denver let them, hahaha. Also, firing Shanahan? Thats the MJ talking again. With Shanahan, we would have won a couple more Superbowls by now, instead of being a laughing stock for the most embarrassing Superbowl loss in history. Not to mention the rash of Broncos players acting like frat boys and gangsters.

What kind of poser still wears North Face? North Face is for thugs and the poors. 


If you aren't wearing arc'terys you aren't riding with me.

Yes, an additional stereotype is needed for this list about how Denver natives don't like to see themselves discluded from lists of Denver stereotypes.

Boots! Cowboy, snow, hiking, dress..... Doesn't matter what kind we wear them all year long!

This isn't news and it isn't Denver. Someone could've written this without ever coming to Colorado. I love the Westword but come on...

I'm native Denver, I don't own fleece,smoke weed or snowboard. I like Coors, Jim Beam and Rock and Roll. Screw this list!!

This is garbage. I am a native of Denver. This whole mess is insulting to me.

I am a Denver native and I thought that the list was idiotic. First of all, most of the transplants are from the Midwest and Northeast. Second of all, Denver proper is a raging liberal town. The Burbs to the South are Tancredo country and they are hardly live and let live. Denverites don't pride themselves on their North Face, but on the ability to go between outdoor gear and evening wear. Denver natives ski. Boarders are still bump ruining knuckle draggers. Denverites believe that guns are for cowards. If you can't feel safe here, then go hide under a rock in Abilene you half wits. Also, remember that the suburbs are the suburbs and not Denver. Highlands ranch was the Phipps ranch in 1980 and those chumps don't live in Denver and they never have. I could go on, but you get the idea.

Yes, there are those who fit all the above. How simplistic to portray us with so little diversity. Fortunately I've lived here longer than your rag has been in business and can see there is more. You are too busy trying to sell advertising.

I'm from Denver, drive a 4runner, and own North Face items. Stereotypes are still lame. Thanks for perpetuating them...?

I live backed up to the mountain, drive an SUV, wear a north face hoodie and I'm native. Check the freezer for green Chile. ;)

The title of this 'article' should have been, "Self Congratulatory Denverites Celebrate Themselves."

The North Face originated in San Francisco. Not Colorado.

A californian gave it to them from their SUV's window. Thinking "I did a good deed!"

Nor do real Colorado Residences NEED to have an SUV. That is what usually makes those stand out...wearing North Face and you like in Stapleton driving an SUV? Yeah, not from here. Oh, and you probably won't find natives living in Stapleton or Lowry.

Denver has the best dressed homeless folks too. Saw a couple of them with Timberlands and Northface jackets.

... mindless "Top 10" lists -- especially spread out over multiple pages -- are merely advertising $$ click bait.

What are you imbreds still doing here? It's a transplant state now and you don't belong. 


Hopefully you are at least living in Aurora with the other poors.
