Denver Neighborhoods: Great Places to Live

Denver has a diverse range of housing options, areas, and activities from hip brick converted lofts in LoDo and turn-of-the-century Victorians and Queen Anne style homes in Uptown, to master planned communities and mature old Denver neighborhoods. Depending on your price range and the access you are looking for, there are a wide variety of neighborhoods to choose from when searching for Denver real estate.

Maybe the eclectic feel, diverse nature, and edgy quality of Capitol Hill in Central Denver is where you want to be. This combination of old-world charm and modern convenience attracts residents interested in easy access to the business district and the state capitol. Other Central Denver neighborhoods to investigate include Baker, Central Business District, Cheesman Park, City Park, Congress Park, City Park West, Civic Center, Country Club, Lincoln Park, North Capitol Hill, Speer, and Union Station.

Head to the East Side and you have options from Denver neighborhoods located within the master planned community of Lowry to a place to stroll along well kept gardens, charming mature homes, and quaint shops in the Park Hill neighborhood. These areas give you two different takes on urban living with equally desirable outcomes. Other East Side communities include Belcaro, Cory-Merrill, East Colfax, Hale, Hilltop, Indian Creek, Montclair, Virginia Village, Washington Virginia Vale, and Windsor.

If you are looking for urban redevelopment filled with parks, porches, and a community lifestyle then Stapleton just northeast of downtown is a great Denver neighborhood to explore. This community, once the Stapleton International Airport, was a blank canvas allowing neighborhood planners to take the best of classic Denver architecture, and combine it with well designed welcoming tree-lined streets. Other neighborhoods located in the Northeast worth checking out are Cherry Creek, Denver International Airport, Gateway/Green Valley Ranch, Montebello, and Northeast Park Hill.

Maybe living near some of Denver’s most popular restaurants and attractions is more your speed. If that’s the case, then the Berkley Neighborhood, located in Northwest Denver, with its wide open spaces and green tree-lined parks may be the place to find homes from a mix of time periods and price ranges. Other northwest neighborhoods you may want to investigate are Auraria, Chaffee Park, Highland, Jefferson Park, Regis, Sloan Lake, Sunnyside, and West Highland.
