My husband has family in denver and we want to get the heck out of louisiana, i will admit, i am used to small town living and believe me when i say small, my hometown is called "the village of holden" so.. yeah lol I hate the heat and especially the humidity.. having super curly hair + louisiana humidity = big frizzy mess! my husband is ready to get away from here also, and we see denver as our best option... if any of you could please tell me what areas and what town and stuff are the ones to stay away from, and which ones wuold be best to go to. i want something thats not in the ghetto lol i've lived there for a long time, im tired of it, want something new and different, so any suggestions?

There are no ghetto's left in Denver, 15 years ago there was five points and logan square, now those are all cleaned up.

In reference to areas of Denver not as nice as others, just stay away from Colfax (that's a street that runs all the way across Denver, straight through downtown) as a general rule. Some areas it's quite nice around colfax, but more than not colfax is going to be the cheaper dirtier areas, otherwise, I don't know what to say. There's really no areas to stay away from in Denver, having lived there my whole life in many different parts, I can't say I would feel uncomfortable in any area at all.

If I were to suggest an area, my favorite places to live, are Lakewood, Golden, and Arvada. they're very cozy not up scale but super friendly down to earth areas to live.

LOTS of great areas in and around Denver. We've a member on here named MickTooth who came from NOLA after Katrina, he and his family love it here; you can find his postings with the advanced search tool.

Tell us more about your job, kids, schools, hobbies, price range, etc and we'll zero in on some great choices.

Oh yeah, and stay the hell out of Lakeside. Around Lakeside is ok, just not in Lakeside. between Sheridan and wadsworth from say 50th to 44th, or somewhere about that. This is like a blind spot in Denver because they have their own independent municipality or something of that nature, even though the sole money earner in the area has been borderline out of business for years.

And don't ever ride any rides in Lakeside. Just drive on by.

well right now im just a house wife looking for a job, down here it's very difficult for me to find a job, I know a lot about clothing and beauty retail. and some restaurants. but my husband is currently working for walmart but what he wants to do is either use his degree in culinary arts and be a chef or become a cop. that's what he really wants. im also an amateur photographer but I need a new camera lol the one I have is broken and kinda old. I really wanna start a photography business =) but we don't have any kids at the moment but we will be settling down in denver so our kids are probably going to grow up there but for right now until I can get some credit because right now I have none, we'll be renting i've looked at some apartments online and saw an apartment place called the artisan apartment homes. had some one bedrooms that were nice but if anyone knows where I can find a really nice apartments around denver, for about 400 -450 a month that would be wonderful!

Okay, now we're getting somewhere. Artisan apartment homes is listed on the website for Wonderland Homes and claims to be in Stapleton, which generally is a very good area and there are lots of Stapleton threads listed in the Index or found with the search tool.

Since your career status is so wide open, the Stapleton location will be a fine starting point, then after a year or so you can re-assess your situation and location.
