I live in Tampa, FL and will be moving back to KCMO in Aprild, so I am excited to leave the tropics to come home. We had a better life there than we have here. However, I hope that you like football because the KC Chiefs are everything there and they are all over the place. It is fun to tailgate with people and if you go to the games, you will be surrounded by 68,000 of your closest friends. KC Chiefs fans love other fans; it's a huge family. I have never seen anything like this before. And it is the LOUDEST stadium in the NFL.
I've never heard of anyone coming to Denver and leaving due to the altitude. Maybe if you're an 80 year old smoker, it might not be good for you, but there are close to 3 million people in the metro area, so obviously it's not much of an issue. I think most people may be a little tired when they first get here... I was, and kind of thirsty the first week. Then your body adapts.

I think most people just experience being a little tired and thirsty. But there is a reverse effect for me when I travel to low altitudes. When I go to low altitudes, the first couple days I feel so full of energy and mentally sharp. I love to work out at lower altitueds too. I can lift more weight, run faster/further, and drink more

I go hiking in the mountains once in a while and struggle a bit with the altitude but eventually adjust. Is noticeable for sure. Drinking a lot of water before going to Denver helps with adjusting to higher altitude.
