What used to be an industrial dump north of the Platte River, with not much activity other than street art from locals and passersby has now been revamped into an artsy neighborhood called, RiNo or River North.

Denver has taken an ugly side of the city and decided to shape it into something it had the potential of becoming. The city embraced the graffiti and street art on this side of town and used a creative mind to recreate and exploit a place to..well…create. Inside RiNo people are constantly creating things within the realms of art galleries and studios, breweries and pubs, restaurants, as well as jazz and music clubs. Residents are also embracing what was mostly all industrial area and train tracks by moving into new lofts and condominiums that are continuing to be built in this neighborhood.

Another neighborhood worth mentioning to the north of Denver is the neighborhood of Whittier. Compare this place to wine, very old and very dark. There has been some dark history as far as racial tension and gang violence, but more and more residents have since started an initiative to make sure the area of Whittier has a better reputation and way of life. More and more families are moving to the area as crime has decreased and overall family quality of life has improved. There might not be much as far as bars and restaurants go, so you’ll need to venture out of the neighborhood for your places to eat and drink, but this has become a great place for families to grow. Watch this neighborhood absolutely explode as far as population and revenue in the next few years.
