7 Most Desirable Areas in the Denver Area

July 27, 2016

When you are looking for a place to reside, it is much more than trying to find a roof over your head. You want to find a place where you can be part of the neighborhood and where you will be an extension of the community. For those who want to relocate to the Denver area, there are some communities that allow you to feel as if you belong and it is not just about finding shelter, but about the entire neighborhood at large.

The Reasons
Do you have a keen eye on Denver as the place where you would love to move your family? If you are looking at the state of Colorado as the ideal place, but want to enjoy a little bit more of nature and more outdoor space, then you may really love any one of the areas discussed below. These desirable areas were chosen because of different reasons such as:
  • Being more family friendly
  • Have excellent schools
  • Livelier cities, though smaller
  • Plenty of shopping, dining and nightlife options
Let’s take a closer look at each of them.

Greenwood Village
The prosperous Denver suburban neighborhood of Greenwood Village tops the list, bringing a wide range of options for home buyers. This includes single family homes located on flawless lots and chic contemporary condominiums. You can take the children out to the playground at Westland Park or you can make plans for an adult night out on the town at the Wooden Table, an upscale and modish Italian restaurant. Greenwood Village has a quick commute time to the city of Denver. The schools are highly rated and so have made this place one of the best suburban area for families.

In the town of Superior, the name speaks for itself. Home buyers have several options to choose from. There are single family homes that look state-like and there are ranch style homes that offer a lot of space and are quite affordable. If you love the outdoors, then you will love this area as it offers:
  • Hiking
  • Skiing
  • Biking
  • Fishing
Pike National Forest has become the ideal camping spot on weekends. Wayne’s Smoke Shack is the local eatery and so is Doug’s Day Diner. Both adults and kids are welcomed. The town of Superior is second on the list of best high schools.

In Louisville, you will enjoy the wide open outdoor spaces. Memory Square Park and Pirates Park have large playgrounds for the entire family to spend quality time. Single family homes are located on large lots, particularly the ranch style houses. You can safely walk to any of the several local pubs and restaurants on the commercial strips.

If you still want to hold on to the city vibe, then Boulder is the place for you. It has a lot of nightlife options, shopping, and dining. The condominiums are contemporary and chic and the most common option. However, if you want a single family home on a large lot, you won’t be disappointed. Living in Boulder allows you to experience the best of both worlds. You get to enjoy the outdoors and the city life in the same breath. Frasca Food and Wine and the Buff Restaurant are two of the popular local eateries to grab a drink or food.


With its numerous green spaces and parks, Lafayette is another great place for the outdoor enthusiasts. There are a lot of new construction of townhomes and single family homes in the area. So, if you want to live in a newly constructed home, this is the place. More importantly, the parks are kid-friendly with enjoyable and attractive views. Bistro 503 and Launda Eatery & Cantina offers opportunities where you can eat and drink in comfort.


If you are looking for a small condominium or large single family home, Centennial makes it possible. If you have young children, you will love this area because of its superior elementary school, one of which is the Heritage Elementary School. Enjoy the mountain backdrop view and the entertainment at the Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater.

Last, but not least is Broomfield with its large lots of single family homes. For outdoor enjoyment, stroll along the Broomfield Sculpture Trail or hang out at the Scenic Rock Creek Farm. For leisure dining, visit the La Casa Del Burrito or Zaika Indian Cuisine.
