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.
It's ok, but stoners keep moving here.
