Five Points neighborhood in Denver is my favorite place to live for so many reasons. I have lived and worked in the neighborhood for a year now it is unique, historical, charming and alive. We have a great community feel and Five Points is super walkable as well as bike friendly. The immediate area provides easy access to several beautiful parks, restaurants, bars and music venues (when they were open).

I'm a native so my opinion might be a little bias. It is a busy neighborhood just about five city blocks away from downtown Denver. The neighborhood is very active, bikes and scooters easy to rent from all around the city. People love dogs, there are many dog parks, including off leash for fur babies to roam freely. Construction is everywhere, the gentrification of the city is in full boom and getting around feels less like Colorado and more like California traffic.

I live off Park Ave West which is a road that will take you from I25 downtown to Downing street where the neighborhood changes to Cole. It is a busy street and sometimes the commute is easy, and other times it's at a standstill.
The neighborhood is beautiful, safe, diverse, and close to downtown. The light rail runs through the neighborhood making it easy to access the rest of the city. Street parking is fairly easy to find. However housing prices continue to rise. Lots of cute local shops and restaurants! This is great neighborhood to walk through. You're guaranteed to find a cute shop or eatery to stop at.
