Neighborhood: Golden Triangle
The Golden Triangle is a neighborhood located near uptown Denver, where a majority of civic buildings as well as a few recent lofts and condominiums live.
The Golden Triangle is the unofficial name of the Civic Center neighborhood, in a triangular-shaped area defined by Speer, Colfax and Broadway. This neighborhood sees a lot of Denver’s cultural, local and art gatherings during the warmer months so get used to a lot of visitors and tourists around this area. If there aren’t any festivals happening, the Golden Triangle is home to the Denver Art Museum, a few of South Broadway’s museums, restaurants, and unique local shops.
Remember that since there is a lot of cultural and social activity in this neighborhood, it gets noisy and packed quite often — especially since the streets in this area are often closed off for the many different events that take place. Even though the Golden Triangle (or Civic Center) neighborhood is very busy, there are a few places that cater to the quieter, small family lifestyle, making it a great neighborhood destination for the “social butterfly,” the “foodie”, the “health nut” and the small, young family.
