When you're searching for a home, the neighborhood in which a property is located is just as important as the home itself. In Denver, each little neighborhood tends to have its own personality, often attracting people that share similar interests based on the benefits that part of town has to offer. But, if you don't know what characteristics distinguish each district, you might miss out on a place that would suit you perfectly. Here's a quick guide to help you get to know some of Denver's most popular neighborhoods.

1. You're a Foodie

If it's important for you to have a plethora of places in which to eat, drink, and be merry, LoHi (or Lower Highlands) will likely be an appealing area. The number of bars and restaurants in the area has risen exponentially in the past few years, making it a hot place for people who like to imbibe on good eats and drinks.

2. Art is an Important Part of Your Life

Are you a lover of intentional graffiti, wall murals that cover entire blocks, and trendy spaces that have been repurposed from old warehouses and brick buildings that boast of tons of history? RiNo (River North) might be calling your name. Where once there were endless warehouses and storage units, you'll now find and ultra-hip neighborhood that's huge on art and giving creatives a place to call home.

3. You Love Jogging with Your Dog

If wide-open green spaces are important to you, you'll love Wash Park. This neighborhood is filled with everyone from young professionals to families to retirees who have lived in Wash Park for generations. The homes in this part of town are much grander than other neighborhoods, and the park itself is bustling with health-conscious people who are walking, jogging, riding their bikes, or playing a bit of volleyball any day of the week, all year long.

4. You Walk a Walkable Neighborhood That's Close to Downtown

Capitol Hill is Denver's "downtown neighborhood". You'll find an assortment of high-rise condos, old home that have been converted into multi-family residences, and huge historic single-family houses in Capitol Hill. The neighborhood is walkable to downtown, or if you're feeling brave, you can hop on one of the electric scooters that's scattered throughout the area to get downtown a little faster. Cap Hill has seen incredible growth in recent years, bringing it with it new buildings, breweries, eateries, and wine dives.
