My wife and I were in Denver for our anniversary, and the Santa Fe Art District seems like a great place to live.

Does anyone who lives or goes there regularly have an opinion about the area?

It is an area in transition and though the galleries on Santa Fe were appealing, they are not representative of the surrounding area. Crime has decreased because of the Golden Triangle developments and the area south of 6th Baker has always been a cool area to live. The arts distrcit is closer to the Lincoln Park government housing area. For the most park the area is mellow but the park does see it's share of activity in the summer. I went to Denver West High School and can currently walk to the Santa Fe Arts District from Governor's Park. If you liked the feel of the night during the arts show, I would recommend checking out the Highlands or Berkeley neighborhoods.

Nah it is ****ty looking but not a bad area. My wife worked down there for a while back in the late 90's and even then it was not dangerous, just ugly.
