Baker is quaint, beautiful and welcoming. The houses are so unique and well kept up and the community involvement is plentiful. Close to Broadway street, there is always something to do, eat or drink. Loved living here!

Baker Neighborhood is very charming and eclectic. I absolutely love living in Baker and working not too far away. There is rarely any traffic, and the public schools, especially DCIS are excellent! The neighborhood diversity has given me a chance to learn spanish and communicate with my lovely neighbors. I love walking my dog in this neighborhood because I feel safe.
Lovely and quirky little neighborhood. The mix of old Victorian homes with renovated homes makes for a charming small neighborhood feel. Incredible access to night life, shops, and the highway make it work well for many lifestyles. There are families and there are young professionals as well as older people who have been here for many years. Great neighborhood with the most character in Denver.
