Denver, Colorado: Must-See Neighborhoods

Denver, Colorado’s capital, will blow your mind – literally. It is located at an elevation of just one mile above sea level, at 5,280 feet (1.609 meters). Denver’s wide range of activities will energize you, even if the altitude isn’t enough to make you feel dizzy.

The Mile High City is not a place you can go to for relaxation and zen. It’s a place for adventurers and explorers, see-ers and do-ers, and anyone eager to move. Being out of breath is a common occurrence in this city.

The city has experienced a surge in visitors over the years. These include vacationers and professionals who want to be part of its vibrant, energetic, down-to-earth atmosphere. The city’s reputation is also helped by its 300-days of sunshine. Here’s a list of Denver’s top neighborhoods, including RiNo’s brewery hop, Washington Park’s meandering, and Lincoln Park’s Arts District, on Santa Fe.

River North Arts District (RiNo).

River North Arts District or RiNo, once an industrial no man’s land, has become one of Denver’s most vibrant and hip communities. Although technically it is part of the larger Five Points area, RiNo’s recent flood of shops and restaurants makes it stand out.

RiNo’s streets are dotted with murals and cool, young people buzzing. Although empty warehouses are still visible at the edges of the bustle and bustle, they serve as reminders of their past industry days. However, business owners have taken advantage of these large spaces. Many abandoned buildings are being creatively transformed into spacious beer gardens or airy indoor spaces. Some even feature local art that adds energy and color.

Denver Central Market is a food court with many restaurants. Ratio beer works have a good selection of local beers. Whether you stay the night or enjoy a cocktail, the Ramble Hotel is another must-visit for its chic-meets-historical-meets-industrial vibe.

Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill is centrally located in Denver. It has changed a lot since its humble beginnings. Capitol Hill is an old neighborhood built by Denver’s elite in the late 1800s. The historic architecture still bears remnants of this era.

Walking through Capitol Hill is like walking through Denver’s past. Victorian homes line the streets, while the state capital dominates the scene. A surprising church in gothic style rises from a corner. It looks almost like it should be immediately returned to France. There are also a variety of bars and coffee shops, along with stores for all your vices.

Although Capitol Hill is a little more gritty than in 1880, young people and Denver transplants continue to flock to it because of its central location. Visitors love the variety of museums and historical buildings available, including the Molly Brown Museum, which is the beautifully preserved Victorian home of Margaret Brown, an activist and socialite who survived the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.

Lower Downtown (LoDo).

Denver’s downtown is divided into two distinct areas: the Central Business District (CBD) to the east, and the Lower Downtown (LoDo), to the west. CBD bustles with businesspeople shuffling between high-rise buildings on weekdays. LoDo’s trendy dining scene and vibrant atmosphere attract both locals and tourists. LoDo’s Larimer Square, dotted with string lights and leads to hidden speakeasies in the streets, is renowned for its vibrant nightlife.

LoDo, one of Denver’s earliest neighborhoods, holds many of the city’s historical roots. It includes Union Station, its most prominent feature. Although the original structure was constructed in 1881 during Denver’s gold rush, a fire destroyed it, and it was rebuilt in 1914 using the Romanesque Revival style. It is now home to many bars and restaurants, which welcome train passengers and passersby.

LoDo is home to the Colorado Rockies. You can also catch a game at Coors Field or visit Wynkoop Brewing Company. This is Denver’s first brewery. The Farmer’s Market is open Saturdays outside Union Station. It’s a great place to stop for a morning.
