By Landing | May 12, 2020

Considering a move to Denver, Colorado? You’ve got the right idea; Colorado is filled with plenty of bustling cities like Colorado Springs, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Longmont, but the Mile High City of Denver is where it’s at.

There are plenty of things to do in Denver, so whether you are a corporate traveler visiting for a few days are in need of some housing, searching on an online database for a Denver short-term housing apartment, or working with a real estate company to find townhouses, lofts, or the best full-service, furnished apartments that Colorado has to offer; there is something here for you.

So, if you are searching for the perfect Denver neighborhood to call home, here are some areas to check out while finding a new primary residence.

1. Cherry Creek

Cherry Creek is a fantastic option for both families and individuals looking to have a mix of amenities that come with living in a city, but with some nature and mountain views right outside your front door. Cherry Creek is a wonderful neighborhood with tons of outdoor retail and dining options, but if you want to feel like a traveler in your own city, Cherry Creek State Park is just a 5-minute drive away for the perfect reprieve from the bustling city if needed.

2. Greenwood Village

Located just south of downtown Denver, Greenwood Village is another nature lover’s paradise. There are plenty of open fields and trails with amazing views of nature to take in over a picnic with your friends and family. With the wide-open spaces of Greenwood Village, you’ll find a lot of playgrounds, as well as a diverse selection of properties like rental homes, executive homes, and vacation rentals. There’s something for everyone here.

3. The Highlands

Real estate agents love the Highlands neighborhood because it is close enough to the city center to get a taste of city life, but far enough away that you can get some space and fresh air. Located right on the cusp of downtown Denver, you’ll be able to find plenty of bedroom units, rental properties, and corporate housing for those to enjoy quiet living during the day, and fun and hip restaurants at night.

4. Capitol Hill

If you’re looking to live in the heart of Denver, look no further. Capitol Hill is right in downtown Denver and is the most densely populated neighborhood in the city. With that in mind, there’s so much room to make a personal connection with your neighbors, with plenty of people around, and streets full of pubs and bars. There’s also the Denver Business Center, so you’ll notice a lot of corporate rentals, short-term leases, and office locations amidst a bustling business community here. It’s safe to say that with the eclectic mix of people in this neighborhood, you’ll never have a boring day.

5. Five Points

This neighborhood, located right on the edge of downtown, was once the center of Denver’s Jazz scene in the 1920s. Nowadays, it is a diverse, vibrant area that is often the talk of the town amongst the younger population. A lot goes on in Five Points, including the annual Five Point Jazz Fest, which celebrates and honors the city’s awesome jazz heritage. In addition to that, you can find plenty of outdoor restaurants, parks to take a picnic, and tons of hipster coffee shops right in the center of the action.

As you can see from these beautiful neighborhoods, there is an area for everyone in Denver. So, next time you are looking for a short-term rental, a simple bedroom in an Airbnb, a corporate apartment for business travelers, a condo, or an investment property, check out these areas and you’ll soon be moving into a new home.
