Hello all,

I'll be moving to Denver following graduation in May and I was looking for advice on the best neighborhoods for my situation. I'd prefer to be in a studio apartment in or near downtown/the ballpark area. Also, how is the scene for a 22 year old guy in downtown Denver? I'm a little worried about seeming young compared with other people living around me.

Thanks!

Nah, you won't be too young. I'm 23 and looking in a somewhat similar place. 22 may be on the younger end (that's when people graduate college), but a lot of people are in there 20's in most of the apartments downtown.

In my complex out in the burbs where I am now, the majority have grey hair. While these are still nice people (and probably better neighbours lol), it's just harder to meet people you have things in common with and the area doesn't feel active.

You'll be fine. You're in that spot in life where you are about to transition from a world where everyone was within a couple of years of your age to where your social group can include people from early 20s to early 30s. It happens to everyone. Embrace it.

That area is filled with younger 20 somethings. You go down to Capitol Hill or South Broadway, then it quickly transitions to a lot of late 20s / mid 30s crowd.

I think 22 is a good age to get out here and see if it's a good fit for you or not. I moved out here 10 months ago from CA and still figuring out whether this is a good spot for me or not.

Agreed you'll be fine.

Although I have noticed an age gap in the downtown neighborhoods lately, and I'm guessing it's from the rising rent prices. You will either see 18-23 year olds, usually "MJ refugees", in their party phase, splitting a 1 bedroom between 3-4 people....or Yuppies in their upper 20s/lower 30s.

You shouldn't have an issue making friends, but I would just make sure you don't get mixed up with the wrong people. Find a group sport/activity, or make friends with your co workers.

Have fun!
