Well we finally got the news we had been waiting for and we are moving to Denver March 8th. I have a line on a duplex rental and I would like to make sure the area is ok.

I have my wife and 2 young children so safety is main importance, My kids will not start school till 2008 so school district is not important now as we will only be staynig in this rental for 6 months to a year while we getused to Denver and decide where to buy our home.

Any useful tidbits would be nice. Thanks in advance.

The location is: 225 and Yosemite.

This is an ok area - we rented near by there for 2 years when we first moved to Denver and I was a grad school student - then we built our house a moved to North Denver This was about 5-6 years ago now, but I applied to grad school, was accepted, and we had never been to Colorado - got on the internet and found this apartment and without ever seeing it signed the lease knowing very little about the area - could have gone very BADLY, but we were very lucky and really enjoyed our time there!

It will be easy commuting with I25 and 225 close by and lots of shopping near by!

I had no complaints about where we rented which was just a bit further north on Hampden and Yosemite Traffic on both 25 and 225 can be tough so I would learn some good side streets for your drive home

Congrats on your news and good luck!!

I lived right there for 13 years, in the area just northwest of I-225 and Yosemite. It's a great area-- convenient to the highways (and now, light rail), shopping, the DTC, and is also a very safe area. I don't think you can go wrong there.

Thanks everyone, I decided I don't really want to put down a deposit without ever seeing the place, so hopefully it will still be vacant when we get there... but I am still keeping my eyes open, just in case it gets rented... 4.5 weeks to go......
