This is a very welcoming neighborhood! With all of the beautiful trees, safely tucked-away streets, and huge parks, this area has an amazing small-town feel that's missing in much of greater-Denver.
Review Congress Park
I love the neighborhood. It is quiet and the houses are charming. We are close to everything from downtown, cherry creek, the interstates, and DIA. I hope to one day be able to purchase a home in this neighborhood.
I live in a pretty "hip" part of Denver known as Congress Park. Its a very walkable neighborhood near Colfax Rd that has many restaurants, bars, hair salons, and retail marijuana stores. There is a Sprouts grocery store in walking distance as well as the music venue Bluebird Theater. Also includes a Starbucks, Chipotle, Pinche Taqueria, Pete's Greektown Cafe, Tommy's Thai, Endorphin gym, Chick-fil-a, Subway, Einstein Brothers, Trader Joe's. All good spots in the neighborhood.
