Denver is not just amazing, it’s home
The Hip Highlands
Northwest of Denver, between I-25 and Federal, south of West 38th Avenue and north of 29th Avenue.
Recognized in 2012 by Forbes as 17th on its list for America’s Hippest Hipster Neighborhoods, Highlands has filled its 250-acres with stylish apartments by nationally known architects, with trendy restaurants, bars, shops, boutiques, art galleries and three diverse commercial districts. It continues to grow and reenergize its highly spirited appeal. This is perhaps the most culturally eclectic of all the neighborhoods giving way to longstanding Caribbean, Mexican, Peruvian, Argentinian and Italian family restaurants. It also boasts fine dining and performing arts along its bungalow-style houses. You can enjoy its three parks, Sloan’s Lake where the annual Dragon Boat Festival celebrates their Asian culture, the Rocky Mountain Lake and Berkley Park.
When you’re ready to get out of the neighborhood for a little city excitement, just walk across the Highland Pedestrian Bridge into LoDo.
Lower Downtown (Lodo)
20th and Blake, contiguous to Larimer Square at 15th and Larimer.
With Coors Field as its crown, this once hard neighborhood filled with warehouses has transformed into a jumping nightlife of 90 plus brewpubs, sports bars and cafés. Just beyond its enterprising nightlife is the largest concentration of Victorian and turn-of-the-century architecture in the country. Close to LoDo is the longstanding Union Station where Denver’s 120-mile Light Rail network comes together allowing easy access for those living in the suburbs. There is Elitch Gardens, the only downtown amusement park, a Children’s Museum, Aquarium and the massive REI flagship store, as well as the Pepsi Center where you can cheer on the Nuggets or the Avalanche.
And when you’re ready to cool things down, just jump on a rentable Denver B-Cycle and ride along the 22-mile Cherry Creek Bike Path into Cherry Creek.
3.5 miles from downtown Denver along 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Avenues, from University to Steele Street.
The cheeriest of all the neighborhoods, Cherry Creek is where fashion can be bought from the 320 or so independently owned shops, boutiques, galleries as well as the stylish shopping center with 160 brand name stores. It’s home to some of the finest upscale restaurants and spas and very walkable along posh public art on tree-lined streets and picturesque gardens that become the backdrop for the 4th of July weekend Cherry Creek Arts Festival.
Golden Triangle/Capitol Hill
Along Lincoln, Speer , Colfax and 13th Avenue
But if its art you’re looking for, Golden Triangle/Capitol Hill is the museum district with the Denver Art Museum, Buyers-Evans House Museum, Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art, the Molly Brown house, Denver Firefighters Museum, the History Colorado Center and the Clyfford Still Museum, a truly special place if you’re into modern art. You don’t even have to enter a museum to experience art. In this small area world-renowned architects Michael Graves, Gio Ponti, I.M. Pei, and Daniel Libeskind showcase their buildings.
It’s where the Capitol Building is located, the Civic Center and the Mayor’s Mansion all in the traditional Jeffersonian architecture. Of course, like all of Denver, it’s hip and filled with great restaurants, bars, clubs and coffee shops. You’ll also find one of the most famous Jazz clubs, Dazzle.
These are just some of the fine neighborhoods where New Era can find you a home.
