Hello,

Will be relocating to Denver Jan 1st. Work is off 14th street downtown. It'll be myself, wifey, and our lab.

We want to live in the downtown area. The idea is to have an easy work commute while we settling in.

What are some safe neighborhoods within a 5 mile radius of 14th street and say by the 16th street mall?
Schools aren't important yet
A garage/covered and inclosed parking is preferred.

How about walking my dog downtown & with snow... any tips?
Is Denver a dog friendly city?

Thanks!

Very dog friendly. What's your budget? House or apartment desired?

Rent for the first year.

Budget is between $1000 - $2000 depending on space & location. Obviously we'd love a penthouse for poorhouse pricing. lol. Seriously though, we want to keep it low key and save. Our plan it to buy something in 2017.

Look in Highland, West Wash Park, Baker, Uptown, Capitol Hill, Congress Park, Cheesman Park, Berkeley.

You'll find something under $2K.

I like the idea that you want a easy commute and want to live in downtown.

A 5 mile radius can take you far outside the downtown area. Since you will be working off 14th then you are really centrally located for easy fast commutes from many great neighborhoods in Denver and beyond--if you consider using our excellent public transit with outstanding service to downtown by rail or bus.

That willl give you more options for housing. Some of the other posters have made good suggestion of other neighborhoods in Denver. Here is a neighborhood map to help.

Thank you all for the assistance!

I'm sure it will take us awhile to acclimate to the altitude and weather amongst everything else.

I was surprised to read so many negative comments directed at Texans and Californians... between driving skill, politics, and affects on the housing market, seems many are unhappy with all the growth??

Let me ask about driving in winter. I drive a pickup truck. Snow tires a must? Do they salt the roads to degrees where it should be rinsed off to prevent corrosion?

I'm also curious about clothing. I've gone skiing, but only stayed within the park. I'm assuming snow will be on the streets of downtown, but does it linger long enough to need something like sorels?

I also noticed several single family homes with basements... have these typically been built due to tornados?

Thank you

You will need full winter gear - it can be below zero and it mostly snows in the fall, winter & spring.

We have basements because people like to have them. We do have a few tornadoes now & then. We have houses without basements too.

If you don't have a 4-wheel drive truck, sell it now.

If you don't know how to drive & stop in snow, take lessons.

Housing is getting more expensive by the day. There are more people coming her then there are leaving here and they have to live somewhere.
