Big photos and more below.
Colorado continues to have a reputation in some quarters as a bad-weather state. But anyone who lives here knows that's a gross exaggeration whether or not the state's 300-days-of-sunshine claim is a myth or not.

More evidence comes via a new study by the folks at WalletHub to determine which cities have the best weather. Fifteen in Colorado finished in the top 75, and although several are clustered together, there's plenty of distance between most -- and we bet you can't guess the top finisher, which wound up in the national top ten out of 600 cities surveyed. Count down all fifteen below, complete with photos, national rankings and the methodology at the bottom of the post.

Denver is socked in with smog and heat from the concrete compared to cooler fresher cleaner air of Eastern aurora. Sorry the list doesn't not add up.

Dumbest........story.........ever............something tells me if this writer would investigate a little further- I'm sure Westcliffe/ Silver Cliff and Canon City would have made this list instead of the cloister of suburb towns

Dumbest list ive ever seen!! Why dont you just title this "Front Range Cities have the best weather in Colorado" or "Denver Metro has the best weather in Colorado" and save us the agony of looking over this. Dumb!!

How can y'all keep coming up with new lists multiple times per day? Do you have a team of interns assigned with daily list making or is there an app that randomly generates lists?
