DENVER – Happy 303 Day, Colorado! March 3 (3/03) marks the unofficial day to celebrate everything that makes Denver – and really the whole state -- a pretty awesome place to live in.

So why 303? That’s the primary area code for Denver, and the one that’s well known across the state.

Here are some of the things that we love about Colorado and Denver living:

1. The columbine flower – Colorado’s state flower
