Navigating by car can be hectic but there are a lot of resources, food, and other entertainment. Downtown is a great central location and has easy access to the interstate for additional transportation needs.

I would love to move back to Denver and live there again. Due to the legalization of marijuana; the housing market has skyrocketed. Rent is almost impossible for someone not making a substantial wage to afford. I love the city and i am happy I grew up there but there is a lot of change happening. The gentrification is bad, the poor are being pushed out and the rich are taking over. its becoming San Francisco. I would love for that to stop so Denver could remain the amazing city that is always has been.
The best neighborhood in Denver. I love living here. Safe, lot’s of things to do,...I score it an A+
