View Map

This upscale community is located just a few miles east of downtown Denver. The atmosphere, however, couldn’t be more different than downtown. In the heart of this neighborhood is the well-known Cherry Creek Shopping Center, with more than 160 stores. It is surrounded by Cherry Creek North, an outdoor extension of the mall featuring retails stores and restaurants on tree-lined sidewalks , and an impressive Whole Foods Market.

Several luxury apartments and homes are also in the area, populated by some of Denver's most well-to-do citizens in gated communities that exude Victorian charm on a grandiose scale.

Although Cherry Creek is home to beloved dive bar and burger joint The Cherry Cricket, it’s also quickly becoming known for finer dining establishments like Elway’s and True Food Kitchen. The Cherry Creek Country Club is near the mall, and the 40-mile long Cherry Creek Trail runs through this neighborhood.

Come summer time, Cherry Creek really gets heated up with the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, a three-day outdoor market in early July where patrons can buy art, interact with exhibitors and simply enjoy an award-winning gala.
