Like most cities, Denver has a host of neighborhoods, each with its own unique feel and qualities.
Denver is renowned for its general progressiveness, what with legal marijuana and arguably the country’s most renowned PrideFest, and so Denver is a city that welcomes all, and somewhere in Denver, there is a neighborhood that suits you.
If you like a walkable neighborhood, downtown Denver does not disappoint. The Capitol Hill neighborhood is full of pedestrians. The neighborhood was founded for people who had above average wealth over a hundred years ago, and nowadays, you can find people filling up the unique little shops, sipping lattes at the coffee shops, and the like. Five Points, another long standing neighborhood, boasts some homes and stores that are over a century old. The Rossonian Hotel is a must-see in this charming area of Denver. Lower Downtown, known by most folks in the area as LoDo, is the industrial chic part of town. If you like the idea of living in a loft created from an old factory, go home-hunting in LoDo. You may think RiNo means Republican in name only, but in Denver, where there are no Republicans of any sort, RiNo is the River North neighborhood. In my town, RiNo would be called the Arts Area. If you are interested in all things artsy, head over to RiNo for the weekend. You will find artists and artisans designing furniture, creating paintings, building sculptures, and maybe even spray painting a mural on the side of a building. It’s also where there are several medical centers. It seems like an odd combination, but RiNo makes it work.
