Denver’s made many ‘top 10’ lists in the past. From most enlightened to most fit, Denverites have many reasons to love their city. Now it’s been ranked on a new list: The Top 10 Cities For Nerds.

  1. Atlanta, GA
  2. Portland, OR
  3. Seattle, WA
  4. Sacramento, CA
  5. Minneapolis, MN
  6. Boston, MA
  7. Las Vegas, NV
  8. Miami, FL
  9. San Jose, CA
  10. Denver, CO
