To the northwest of Denver is a large lake called Sloan Lake where shops, restaurants, housing and bars have all developed tenfold lately. The culture of the area has changed since younger, single transplants have started moving in, but it’s still a great area for families to live, close enough to downtown Denver without the hustle and bustle. It’s a convenient and beautiful place to live with the lake, how the sunset reflects on it, the flora around the lake, plenty of open space, and both Interstates 25 and 70 are within a few miles from this neighborhood, making it easy to head to either the mountains or the airport fairly quickly than other neighborhoods.

To the north of Sloan Lake are a few other popular neighborhoods like Regis and Chaffee park. Not quite as popular as Highland, these two neighborhoods have been able to keep a little more of their personality and character while still benefitting from the gentrification that Highlands has brought to the area. Chaffee Park has been known for being a little rough in some areas like Federal Boulevard, but for the most part these neighborhoods have progressed and developed into safer places for families and younger folk not looking to spend or socialize as much as their Highlands neighbors.
