This charming gem, smack in the middle of the big city offers a delightful mix of parks, shops, restaurants and cultural attractions — while just 3 miles from downtown. It has so much to offer, not only the typical cool urban eateries and shops, but the Denver Botanical Gardens which is a year-round delight with Summer Concert Series on the lawns, and The Blossoms of Light in the Winter. Both drawing crowds from all over. Fascinating cheesman Park is a near by, farmers markets, art strolls and busy young people abound. There is nothing not to love about Congress Park.
(The City dubs it North Capitol Hill) is a hip residential area with eclectic global eateries and bars ranging from casual dives to sleek cocktail lounges. Intimate performance venues include the Avenue Theater for comedy and improv, and the Fillmore Auditorium, a 1907 concert hall bringing big name bands year round. A true mishmash of old and new, characterized by longtime Denver standbys, brick row houses, picturesque places of worship, as well as upscale condos, and patios a-plenty and just a stone’s throw from downtown.
