Known as one of the more upscale neighborhoods in the Denver metro area, the neighborhood of Cherry Creek is home to prime outdoor retail stores, plenty of choices for fine dining and a variety of art galleries. 

Bounded by East 6th Avenue to the north, Colorado Boulevard to the east, Cherry Creek South Drive to the South and University Boulevard to the west, the neighborhood encompasses an area about three miles southeast of downtown. With so many dining and entertainment options, it’s no wonder Cherry Creek is a popular – and pricey – pick for home buyers.

Cherry Creek Art Festival
The Cherry Creek Arts Festival is an annual 3-day festival that’s free to attend and has been a summer tradition since 1991.

Nearly 350,000 visitors take part in visual, culinary and performing arts experiences unlike anything else in the area.

The festival takes over a good chunk of the Cherry Creek North Shopping District – from 2nd to 3rd Avenues in the six blocks between Clayton and Steele streets.

Fashion Destination
Situated along East First Avenue the banks of Cherry Creek, the Cherry Creek Mall was originally completed in 1953 and was renovated in 1990.

The high-end shopping center, besides recently adding many retailers, has always been a popular retail destination in the city. It includes more than 160 shops and 40 stores that can only be found in Cherry Creek.

Home Prices
As we mentioned before, living in Cherry Creek can be on the spendy side. According to Trulia, homes in Cherry Creek start at about $274,000 (for things like one-bedroom condos, for example) and run all the way well north of $1 million.
