I am wondering what areas of the Denver metro would be the best to move to? I want to make sure to find a safe area being a single 25 year old woman.

Really depends on what you're looking for and where your job is. Also if you want to be in the suburbs or actually in the downtown area all make a big difference

Hate to say it but thought this info of mine might be of some help to ya. In regards to your Q to be completely honest, the 'best' & safest Denver metro area to consider relocating to not only depends on where your job is but also on your price range for housing. for instance, if i had a larger income I, a single, 26 y/o woman would def aim on moving into the uptown LoDo or the what's known as the 'Ballpark district' area. but, as i mentioned, housing there is too much for me (e.g. 800 a month for a room for rent & up)so if you are in my senario i recomend you check out either the central Denver north area which is in the Curtis Park area or that you look for housing within the central Denver east area cap.hill, Congress Park, Mayfair, Park Hill, City Park area. Hope you find what you're looking for! :O)

If only there was some ability to search through threads on this site. The mods should install that feature.

Edit: OH wait, they DO have search!

JDBattleMC I have searched specific areas but most of the information I have found is from a few years ago. I searched Montclair and got info from 2006 so I figured I'd ask to see what advice I get.

yeah, the searches can be a little overwhelming sometimes, no worries.

If your into nightclubs, dancing, drinking all the time, fancy restaurants, big buildings, impossible parking, heavy traffic, - go to lodo.

anything else is pretty fair game, I always recommend living in a central location. i.e west wash park, south cap hill, cheesman park. Just for convenience if you don't have a job with you - this way you can commute to pretty much either corner of the city in under 20 minutes.

if your into more artsty stuff, hole in the walls, colfax entertainment, great/walkable location, i would recommend neighborhoods like cheesman park, cap hill, city park or uptown.

wash park area is a little more mid 30's types and houses, opposed to shops, restaurants, apartments and such which you will find in the areas i mentioned above (generally speaking).. but i lived in west wash park (i am 25 male) and I found lots of young people out and about, and i didn't get that mid 30s feel at all so im not trying to say wash park doesnt have young, hip people beacause it does.. Now I live right near Cheesman Park and there is a noticeable difference. Atleast in the amount of young people, hipster type crowd which I like. I am also walking distance to concert venues like The Ogden and Fillmore for example on Colfax, so if you will be on colfax for entertainment (like me), I would recommend something that is walkable distance to some of the areas you will be at. I absolutely love my new area, cheesman park. Its a lot easier to park at than I thought coming in as well. Its actually easier than when I was in west wash park believe it or not, but thats just my experience.

It definitely depends on what works for you and what you are looking for, and your budget as well. you can find a single bedroom for around 800 total in all the areas I am mentioning. You really cant go wrong with any of them. Let us know if you have any other questions, this is a great resource we have here!

Great areas, the west wash park in particular.

Such a fresh memory from my life in those places barely 10 months ago. I think I can safely say Denver was one place I was comfortably happy. Geez, I miss it sorely, and I say this typing from a crowded train leaving NYC.

Such a contrast of how great and peaceful life was out there. Enjoy every single day, people. A state like CO, with the Denver suburbs in particular is just one of the best places to live in peace LOL.

JD, honest question here - what's your reason for being on this Board? The only advice I've seen you offer is short and mean-spirited. I hope that you're able to resolve whatever it is your battling without continuing to belittle people.
