The Most Livable Denver Metro Neighborhoods

Denver Metro Neighborhoods with the Best Livability

One of the perks of purchasing a home in a city is ‘livability’. That is, the ease at which you can walk to and from restaurants and shops or drive to work. Some neighborhoods, however, score higher on the ‘livability’ scale than others.

Livability can be subjective, but REcolorado provides useful information for home buyers to consider when searching for a home, including walk score and neighborhood information. In addition, real estate agents and REALTORS have insider knowledge about what home buyers look for in a community and about the special neighborhoods in Denver Metro Area.

We asked local Denver Metro real estate agents, “what are the most ‘livable’ neighborhoods in the Denver Metro area?” Here’s what they said:


Stapleton is a wonderful community for young families. I lived on E. 25th Place for seven years in a McStain home. Wonderfully built house, all my neighbors had two kids under the age of five at the time. I appreciated the annual Block party, knowing everyone around me, the easy access to Etai’s for a great breakfast or sending my son on his bike for Chipotle. With the new Light Rail station, my guess is this is an even more popular hot spot these days.
