I will be relocating to Denver in Feb. My office will be in Stapleton but I will need great access to highways because my job will take me all around the city including heading out to the mountains. I will also need moderate acces to DIA. I am looking for 20-30 minute commute to Stapleton daily - the less the better. My husband will be working most likely down town.

I am married with a almost newborn (in Feb he will be 6 weeks old - not due till Dec)

We are looking for a home under $250,000 nothing fancy just a safe place, with good day care and close adminities for food, shopping ect.

I have been reading through other threads about Auroura and Stapleton (that's where from the map I thought we would live) but any advice. I liked what I read about Arvada and Englewood but I think that would be a long commute in the morning.

I have read through the other threads but haven't found anyone like me.

If you have any advice I would appreciate it.

Englewood wouldn't be bad, depending on where. Arvada wouldn't be too bad, maybe longer than you would like. Arvada goes pretty far west. It's on the west side of Denver, so you'd be closer to the mtns. The Stapleton/Lowry area is supposed to be good for young families. I don't know about it personally.

There are places in Denver, like Stapleton, Green Valley Ranch or maybe you'd like the northern suburbs like Northglenn, Thornton & Commerce City. The north end of Denver & Suburbs have I-70 and easy access to DIA.

I would stay east of work, if you could, for the morning commute will be easier on the eyes.

Areas like greenwood village and south denver have great access to highways. The north suburbs have some nice areas too but traffic up that way can be nasty.

why not live in stapleton itself- great access to I-70 and 270, close to downtown, walking distance to schools, amenities. Great community for young families (stroller on every porch) and I think you could find a rowhouse or maybe a SFH in you price range. If you can eliminate some of your gas and commuting costs, why wouldn't you? Not to mention, lots of in-home and daycare centers in the surrounding hoods.

I second that dj32 - Stapleton has everything you want. You won't be able to get a huge house but certainly something nice and comfortable. Stapleton is one of the best neighborhoods in Denver, I think.
