One of Denver’s most colorful and trendy neighborhoods is waiting for you, right northwest of the city center! Have you been?
This is a neighborhood that has gotten quite big and hip since I moved to Franceland, and while I was back in May, I was so happy to have wandered it with two of my favourite people. The Highlands neighborhoods (Highlands and West Highlands) are located just northwest of downtown Denver. It is known by many for its little colorful houses painted ever so intricately with adorable front lawns, and of course now for it’s trendy vibes and shops and businesses. With a view of downtown Denver and the Millenium bridge, it is the perfect place to go for a stroll right outside the city center where you can feast your eyes.
Allie and Jay (aren’t they just the cutest?) took me to brunch at Duo before we wandered and took a million pictures, ending our afternoon with a cone at Little Man Ice Cream, right under the lights and gigantic windows of Linger. It really was a lovely afternoon.
You can check out their post on this day right here.
Not only is it an adorable area to stroll through, but a wonderful place to find trinkets and eat delicious things.
