Hi all,

I'm moving to Denver in July. I'm a professional in her 30's. I was thinking of moving to the Capital Hill section of Denver. I would like to be within walking distance of bars/restaurants/parks. I can't afford downtown. Are there are sections of Capital Hill I should steer clear of?

Capitol Hill is a decent area. It seems to have the highest concentration of out-of state residents moving
to that area. I think you would really like the area. There are alot of women in their 20s and 30s that seem to
really, really like the area.

I know some would disagree but Capitol Hill has a few bars, but I would not call the neighborhood a happening
nightlife place. But you can walk to Uptown or walk to the 16th street mall shuttle and be in Larimer Square
or Lower Downtown quickly.

The area has quite a few hole in the wall decent restaurants. They have large strip malls at 6th and Downing and 9th and Downing. Also Colfax which is 6 blocks north of 9th is practically all street level retail.

Additionally, Along 11th and 17th (North Capitol Hill) are big retail corridors with many restaurants. The
restaurants along 17th are mainly the white-table cloth type of restaurants.

The rents have increased alot in Capitol Hill the last 3 to 4 years. Sherman Street is probubly the cheapest
street in the area where you can probubly still get a studio for 600 to 700 dollars a month. As you go
east towards Chessman Park most of the apartment's increase in price.

There is some random crime mainly in the eastern part of Capitol Hill. West of Emerson Street to around
Chessman Park is much safer.

The largest park in the Capitol Hill area is Chessman Park....There are alot of sports activities there and
I see tend to see alot of senior-citizens walking dogs thru the park. There is a fairly large population
of seniors and boomers living in the southern part of Capitol Hill.

I always advise young single people to start off in Cap Hill. It is a
great place to be while learning your way about all the other neighborhoods.

Generally, the further south of Colfax, the better. 7th to 11th is the sweet spot. If you have a car, off-street parking is A MUST.
