Hi,

We are likely moving from Toronto to Denver in the next few months. We are married w/o children (and none planned). In Toronto we live in a neighborhood with older homes that has a commercial street with restaurants, pubs, bookstores, bakeries, flower stores etc.. running through.

I have been following some of the threads and I am thinking Highlands might be a good choice for us -- I also have a dog and like to run so access to good dog walking/running paths or streets is also important.

And finally my spouse will be living in Commerce City -- so I was wondering about the commute times from the urban residential neighborhoods.

Any advice would be great.
Thanks.

I'd suggest Stapleton, Lowry, Hilltop, ... stay on the east side of I-25.

I am guessing, you meant that hubby will be working in Commerce City...

The business about the spouse confused me, too. I agree. With a job in CC, forget the Highlands. It's too long of a drive. The area is nice (I used to live near there), but it's not worth all the time in the car.

Default Highlands is great!

Hi all,

I am new to the forum as well as to Denver. I moved here this summer and live happily in the Highlands. It is great place for 20 and 30 somethings....with or without kids. There are tons and tons of neighborhood bars, restaurants, shops, parks, etc.
The easy access to 25 makes it an ideal place to live in my opinion, no matter where your commute is. I work in Castle Rock (yes, really) and my commute is 30 minutes in the morning and about 35-45 in the afternoon. Granted, my work schedule is not a typical 9 to 5 (I am a teacher and able to leave C.R. at 3 every day...) But seriously, no matter what you should consider Highlands!

Well, the drive wouldn't be terrible from Highlands -- you might try taking Federal/Sheridan to I-76 to I-270 to go as an alternative route to I-70, depending on where in Commerce City. However, other posters are correct that Park Hill, Stapleton, etc would be more convenient to Commerce City.

Default Thanks for the advice

Thanks for the advice, I will check out all those neighborhoods. You are right, I meant to say that my spouse would be working (not living) in Commerce City.
