AS_FootballAs everyone in the U.S. eagerly anticipates Super Bowl 50, two cities in particular are on the edge of their seats: Charlotte, N.C., and Denver, Colo., home of the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, respectively. But a lot more is on the line than just having a championship football team. Both of these cities are in a knock-down, drag-out duel over which city is the best overall.

Here is our comparison of the two cities, so you can decide for yourself which team plays in the best city:

Downtown Denver Skyline

This Colorado city in the mountains gets much praise for its culture, natural beauty, and activities. Why, exactly? Here are the top five reasons Denver is just really, really cool.

1. It’s smart

According to the New York Times, Denver’s population of young, educated people has increased 47% since 2000. Additionally, Forbes rated Denver as tied for No. 6 City Gaining the Most College Graduates. A combination of work and play attracts the young professional crowd that looks to start new careers in fun cities. Careers for young people are not something Denver is short of, either – its industries are booming in the high-density downtown area, particularly with technology and startups.

 2. It’s beautiful

Denver really is a mile high and the largest city in a vast region, making for quite spectacular scenery. Snowboarding, skiing and hiking are the obvious attractions for being situated in the mountains, but Denver boasts its natural qualities in many ways. It began one of the first large-scale municipal bike sharing system, and has amazing city parks. Even a walk from your apartment in Denver to downtown – there’s no way to not enjoy the beauty.
