About the Highlands Neighborhood of Denver
Trendy restaurants, bars and shops abound in the Lower Highlands (LoHi), Highlands Square, and Tennyson Street commercial districts. The confluence of these three distinctly different areas also makes the Highlands Denver’s largest neighborhood.
In Highlands Square, you’ll find a charming community filled with boutiques and cafes, not to mention adorable bungalow homes. Restaurants feature an array of cuisines, from sushi to Caribbean, and everything in between. There are also an abundance of pubs, wine bars, and other lounges, which offer Highlands home owners lively atmosphere.
The Tennyson Street Cultural District is home to quite a few art galleries, live music venues, and amazing Italian and Mexican cuisine. On the first Friday of every month, local galleries and artists display and sell their work here.
In the Lower Highlands Area, the Navajo Street Art District is quickly becoming a place to explore your artistic side. From performance art to outstanding galleries, it’s becoming one of the most visited places in town.
Highlands is also a convenient place to live. With just 3.1 miles separating it from downtown Denver, it’s the perfect place to retreat after a long day at the office. There are so many things to do in this bustling area, including the annual Highlands Street Fair that features live music, food and drink, arts and crafts, a classic car show, and more. And for outdoors enthusiasts, there’s no place better than the Highlands neighborhood. With three large parks, including Sloan’s Lake, Rocky Mountain Lake, and Berkeley Park, there is ample space to get outside and soak in the gorgeous Denver weather.
Thanks to the Denver Millennium Bridge and the Platte River Bridge, Highlands homes are more accessible than ever! For home buyers looking for a community that is never short on things to do, this is truly an amazing place to lay down roots.
