The 5 Best Neighborhoods For Transplants

The 5 Best Neighborhoods For Transplants

if you're thinking about moving to Denver, you're probably a little bit overwhelmed with all the places to potentially live. As Denver booms, the entire place gets massively more complex and even the natives sometimes have a hard time with where to live, let alone people moving here for the first time.

People move here for a variety of reasons, but one of the reasons people stay is partly because of the wide variety of people, the fantastic public transportation, marijuana legalization, and our great views. Some of the best neighborhoods for living here in the long term are listed below. 

5. Capital Hill is great in that it's close to downtown, bars, and a nightlife without it being super loud. It's also a relatively safe neighborhood with a mix of apartments and homes, and the bus transportation is also pretty reliable. It's also close to a Whole Foods so you can easily get by without a car in this area. For a great veggie friendly restaurant, check out City-o-City.

4. Highlands  is a more ' ethnic' neighborhood, still dotted with old Italian and Hispanic families along with 30 somethings with young families and people who want to live close to downtown without the hype, parking problems, and a little more refined. This area has really changed for the better in the last 20 years and in all good ways. 

3. Washington Park is the darling of Colorado residents. named after it's giant 140 acre Washington Park, this area features classic 1920's style homes with a mix of little cafes, gourmet restaurants, and large trees.

2. Barnum/Barnum West  According to the city of Denver, “The area is named after P.T. Barnum of the Barnum and Bailey Circus. He purchased 760 acres in 1882 as an off-season winter respite for his show, and originally named many of the streets in the area after famous people. Today, it's on the West side of Denver and is an under-highlighted area of town. It's near the highway and is pretty quick access to most places in the Denver Metro area. 

1.Southmoor Park/Hampden South another area with relatively little highlighting, Southmoor Park is a great place to live if you're employed in South Denver/ Denver Tech Center. They're right off the highway and lightrail as well and only about 20 minutes from downtown.
