My fiancee` and I are moving to Denver in 30 days. Naturally, It doesn't look like I will have time to visit; although, I have a few friends in the area who said they would view some places for me. Currently, we are in Montgomery Alabama. As you can imagine, pretty much anything would be an improvement so we are excited and looking forward to being Denverites!

I've pretty much searched and read to death everything that is published on the net about moving. I figured I would try to get some insights from some feedback from people in the city. We are looking for something small with access to most cultural activities (not the club, but a park/museum and free activities would be good). Would like to be able to walk around the neighborhood. We don't want a two bedroom and we have become minimalist.

We've found two apartments that we liked but don't know anything about the areas:

1) Prana,http://boutiqueapartments.com/index....tail/cat/Prana
2) Metropolis, http://boutiqueapartments.com/index....at/Metropolis/

I've been told that the traffic by Metropolis is hell on earth. Please advise. However, from the research, it seems that it is a slightly "better" area than Prana. Our price range is from 800-1100 depending on what amenities come with the place.

From a traffic standpoint, both of these areas have big problems.

Colorado Blvd (Metropolis) is one of the busiest streets in the metro area. It is busy all the time, and during rush hour it can be unbearable. The same holds true for both 6th Ave. and Speer Blvd. (Prana).

Metropolis is very close to City Park which houses both the zoo and the Museum of Nature and Science. Prana is closer to the Art Museum, Colo History Museum, and Downtown Denver. Both neighborhoods are walkable, but Prana has better access to restaurants and shopping.

Thanks davidv. Yeah, I am concerned about that. How is public transportation in Denver?
