Other neighborhoods to stay in Denver
Cherry Creek is a popular neighborhood to stay in Denver. The area is known for its range of high end luxury hotels, and vast range of shops and outlets.
If you fancy yourself a bit of a shopaholic, with a taste for the finer things in life, Cherry Creek is the perfect place for you to stay. The Cherry Creek North Shopping District has 16 blocks of charming shops, restaurants, spas and more. It’s the ultimate place to treat yourself. Cherry Creek North has shops selling all kinds of goods, from clothing, to art, to homeware, so you’re bound to fall in love with this shopping district. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also the Cherry Creek Shopping Centre, where you’ll find well known designer brands like Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Nordstrom, and there’s even an Apple store. Staying in this high end neighborhood means you can shop until you almost drop, without having to worry about having to far to go to get back to your hotel.
LoDo (Lower Downtown)
LoDo is Denver’s oldest neighborhood, and it’s where you’ll find some of the city’s top attractions, shops, and in particular, restaurants. Those staying in the general Downtown area often find themselves giving in to the appeal of LoDo’s restaurants and dining there instead. So it’s a good place to stay if you want to the ultimate Denver dining experience.
There are a few tourist attractions in the area, for example the Millennium Bridge which resembles the mast of a ship, and connects the 16th Street Mall and the Riverfront Park. There’s also the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, which showcases some modern masterpieces in an area that has a largely historic feel. The Union Station is also a top spot to visit, especially if you’re interested in Denver’s history.
But whilst there are some attractions in the area, it isn’t quite as touristy as other Downtown areas, in fact it’s where most locals go for an evening out. If you decide to stay in LoDo, you might enjoy the more authentic and vibrant atmosphere that comes with this popular neighborhood.
Highlands is a neighborhood just outside of the Downtown area, and is located on a hill overlooking the city. It’s an area that has undergone a huge transformation over the last few years, being transformed into one of Denver’s most popular neighborhoods (especially for young people), with trendy bars and restaurants characterizing the area and drawing in both locals and tourists.
Thanks to its recent transformation, Highlands is now one of Denver’s more modern areas to stay, with contemporary buildings and state of the art living spaces. It’s a good place to stay for those that want to avoid the often expensive hotel rates in the Downtown area, without forfeiting the benefits of a central location. Highlands is only a short way from the main Downtown area, so staying in the area means you can still enjoy everything Denver’s Centre has to offer.
