I may be moving to Denver to work in the Tech Center and am looking for a good area to live in.

I'm 25 so still not ready for the suburban thing yet and can probably spend no more than $1200 on rent. I wouldn't mind living downtown and found a few nice places there but I'd really like to cut down on my commute time to work.

I'm ok with living in a quieter area if it means I don't have a 20 min drive each way to work but outside of the downtown area I'm not sure of the best place to look.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Anywhere along light rail from Hampden north to Lodo would be a good start.

Any good apartment complexes?

Lodo would be awesome but according to Google maps its a 15 mile drive to DTC. Is the commute time worth it or can places just as nice with walking distance pubs and activities be found near DTC?

The DU area might be a good fit. You can take light rail downtown and to DTC. You would be able to walk to pubs, restaurants, etc. It's a college neighborhood so lots of young people.

There are a fair number of mid-20's singles living right in the Tech Center. There are some nice apartment complexes near Belleview & DTC Blvd in Greenwood Village where you could be a 5 min drive or quick walk or bike ride from work. Also by Belleview & Monaco (technically in the Denver city limits) there are some nice apartments that are walking distance to the light rail station.

1. Join Bally's or 24-Fitness. Now, you have a shower.
2. Eat at McDonalds. The Dollar Menu is very affordable.
3. Sleep in your car.
4. Save lots of money. Quickly.
5. Buy a house.

My daughter lived in that area for three years, while she went to grad school at the health science center. I loved it myself! I'd highly recommend it for someone in their 20s.

I must really be the only person in my 20s who couldn't stand to live in DTC
