Our family is moving from South Orange County, CA (Aliso Viejo) to Denver at the end of this school year. We have a daughter entering HS in the fall, and a son in middle school. Work will be in DTC. Can anyone give us some recommendations on where to live? We're looking for an area similar to where we are now. Good HS is important, and that choice will likely determine where we end up living. Also looking for a reasonable commute to DTC.

We'd like to find a house in a newer neighborhood with a community pool and park/trail access. Nearby access to shopping/restaurants. Any help would be appreciated.

Renting or buying? DTC covers a lot of area.

Look in all directions - but you can't go wrong with Centennial, Greenwood Village, Lone Tree, Aurora, Littleton (Highlands Ranch.)

There's an area of older homes (I know, you said newer) east of Havana between Orchard and Belleview. There are a lot of very nice homes in the neighborhood and they have a community pool. Lots of great hiking trails immediately north in Cherry Creek State Park. The area is nearly IN the DTC and Cherry Creek High School has an excellent reputation as the best school in one of the best districts.

Don't know your price range or how far your husband wants to commute, but that whole area is very family friendly, mature landscaping, very close to shopping, close to light rail station, etc. etc. Another subdivision is called Arapahoe Lakes with an entrance off of Dayton north of Caley. They have a pool and tennis courts.

As an OC person who looked out there and know of many that have moved, the first obvious choice is Highlands Ranch. Built by the same company that built Mission Viejo and gives a very similar feel. 4 world class rec centers with pools, low HOA, good schools, and plenty of trails. There are newer areas of HR and older areas of HR that have some different visual styling and lot sizes

Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree fulfill every wish in your last paragraph.
