With the Rocky Mountains to the west and High Plains to the east, the Denver metropolitan area is a sprawling metropolis amongst panoramic hills. It encompasses a variety of neighborhoods to suit most tastes, whether impressive city skyscrapers grab your interest or if 19th-century buildings are more your thing, there is plenty on offer.
Downtown Denver comprises a handful of diverse neighborhood pockets, each with its own charm. Follow the 16th Street pedestrian mall for shopping and dining options, or head to Larimer Square for craft cocktails al fresco. In RiNo, you'll find an abundance of street art and local vendors. With convenient transportation to the greater area from Union Station and two pro sports teams with stadiums housed here, downtown has no shortage of activity.
Denver boasts a thriving economy owing to it being the most populous city within a 500-mile radius, providing Denver Metro residents access to well-paid jobs and career opportunities in the tech, aerospace, agriculture and fast food industries. Head west from downtown to explore more of the area's perfect blend of city and nature. Take a scenic walk around Sloan's Lake — it's beautiful scenery changes with the seasons!
Further west, find the city of Lakewood, which sits in an attractive location between the Rocky Mountains and the major city. Though many prefer to commute to the larger city, Lakewood itself holds its own in the job market, offering over 75,000 jobs to local residents. Providing a more balanced life between indoors and out, Lakewood suits those who love to get outside. Given that it's an area that lays claim to 300 days of sunshine, a booming community of beer, food, sports and outdoor activities, Denver is a fantastic area for a luxury residential living.
