Daily Beast Says Denver is One of America's Smartest Cities



It may come as no surprise to you that I live in one of the smartest cities in America. I'm not just "The Smart Blonde" anymore. I'm now "The Smart Blonde from the Smart City".

According to the Daily Beast's criteria, Denver is the #5 smartest city on the list of 55 of America's Smartest Cities.


“It’s rewarding to see Denver ranked among the smartest metro areas in the country, though we’re not entirely surprised,” Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper told the Daily Beast. “Smart, successful people are drawn to places like the Denver metro area because of our reputation for innovation and quality of life.”


So, like I told so many of you last week when you were wondering if there was a weather balloon floating over my backyard, I live in Denver. The Balloon Boy was from Fort Collins. Fort Collins is not Denver. There are lots of nice smart people in Fort Collins and I'm quite certain that the city may have made the smart list next year if it weren't for that unfortunate Balloon Boy fiasco.

    Hey I'm from Ft. Collins and I represent that! Glad to hear we have such close access to so much intelligence, just in case we need to make a decision- we'll just drive an hour and ask someone in Denver. :-)

    Fort Collins is only 40 minutes away from us. They have more stores than Cheyenne so we go there every month.

    Great for Denver! I won't tell you what list my city made #3 for. It's depressing!

    But see, to us over here on the other side of the country, everything west of the Mississippi is sort of squished together. There are the cornfields, then mountains and then the ocean and that's sort of all we know. But thanks for the geography lesson!
