I am moving to the area and am wondering where the best areas of Denver (or surrounding Denver) are to live. I graduated from college in May 2007 so therefore I am looking for a nice, fun place to live that has younger atmosphere. I also do not want anything cheap or TOO expensive. I can afford between $700 and $1500 per month for a 2bd/ba apartment. If you have any suggestions please pass them my way!

Thank you!

I would check out the Capital Hill area. There are lots of people in their 20's living there, lots of food & bars, and a $5.00 cab ride to anywhere Downtown. There are a lot of rental opportunities in Capital Hill also.
GOOD LUCK.

Centennial or Englewood are good to be close, but not to close to LoDo!!

Agree on Capitol Hill. Great part of town for young people; and rentals there are surprisingly cheap given the fact that it's right on downtown's doorstep. People talk a lot about LoDo as a place to live -- but your $1500 budget won't get you much there -- in Cap Hill, you can easily find a 2br for under a $1000, though of course swank places there will run more, depending on your tastes.

On the other hand, given that Cap Hill is loaded with bars, clubs and live music, it might be a little TOO fun for you, depending on how close you want to be to all that. If you're a light sleeper, might not be the best place, though the south part of Cap Hill (like Governor's Park, for example), is a bit more upscale as well as quieter.

Try the area around DU. There are 2 BR, 1 bath apts around there for ~$650. It meets most of your criteria.

I wouldn't completely discount lofts in Lodo for your price range.- do a google search for denver loft rentals and see what you find. craigslist would also be good. There are a few in your price range at:

Denver Lofts, Home Rentals, and Condominiums

I live in Capitol Hill/Governor's Park and love it! I have been here for over 20 years, Cap Hill, but am a Denver native. This is your ideal area for your age and what you are looking for. LODO is still developing and expensive!
