Great places to run and be outside. Lots of affordable, unique private business. Generally safe. Near to Denver for good night life, but far enough that you don't feel like your in the City.

It's a beautiful, quiet area situated about 10 minutes southeast of downtown Denver. It is a college neighborhood, so the weekends get pretty rowdy. Rent is cheap and affordable. However, many eateries close quite early, even on the weekends. Great place to live.
Denver is a great, a fastly growing city that offers many different opportunities.
