My company has recently offered me the oppurtunity to relocate and take a position in Denver. I'll be getting a raise and some new responsibilities, so the offer is enticing. I'd be moving from Houston, and would be committed to stay in Denver for a year.

I was wondering what are some nicer neighborhoods that are suitable for 20-30 something professionals so I can narrow my apartment search to those places.

For comparison's sake, for anyone familiar with both cities, I'd be looking to Denver neighborhoods similar to the Houston neighborhoods like Montrose, Midtown or the Heights.

Also, is it feasible to get a place in said neighborhoods for $800 or less?

Default Denver is smaller than Houston

1. Start with this map - http://www.denvergov.org/denvermaps/...ghborhoods.pdf

2. I read about the 3 Houston neighborhoods on the Wiki, for whatever that is worth.

3. Padmapper.com to find rentals.

4. Start with the SE corner of Cheesman Park and go North and West.

i too am a young professional moving to denver in a few months, ive been doing some research on the different neighborhoods and i also have a few friends that live in the area. from what i gathered hilltop, highlands, washington park,cherry creek, and uptown are good places to look. LoDo (lower downtown) is pricey lofts for 1300/month but close to attractions adn good for young professionals. capitol hill is good but parking is a problem. . 5 points has crime
