I love the close access to grocery stores and target. However, as a young adult, there is not a lot to offer in terms of night life or social gatherings. However, it is a very safe and generally quiet neighborhood!
Thanks to Denver selling out to the developers, Cherry Creek is now as much of a joke as the rest of the city

If addition to the crazy traffic, the only supermarket and pharmacy within walking distance has been pushed out of the neighborhood. There is a Whole Foods, but it's a joke - like being trapped in an Amway catalogue.
