There’s always something new popping up in the Highlands. Named for its position overlooking the city (with stellar views of downtown and the mountains), the laid-back Highlands area is awesomely eclectic. This neighborhood is actually made up of two: the Lower Highlands (LoHi) and Highlands, which combine to create a residential, food-focused feel. Modern duplexes are going up alongside colorful Victorians with some of the city’s most popular and talked-about restaurants as neighbors. That’s what gives the Highlands a block-to-block diversity unseen anywhere else in Denver.
The Highlands offer beyond-amazing accessibility and all the comforts of the city without any of the chaos. You are just a short walk from urban downtown (via the Millennium Bridge), have instant access to great bike paths along the Platte River and you don’t have to fight your way through city traffic to hit the highway to the mountains.
