What Renters Like and Dislike About Denver

Beautiful area. Restaurants and shops are near by and walkable, very dog friendly. The neighborhood is clean and safe.

Theres coffe and grocery stores nearby. Otherwise I really don't like it. I have to use 100 characters, but it is the truth, if i could move away I would.

They have the golf course, zoo and the Nature of Science near by. They have a ice cream parlor, massage shop and beauty supply store. I usually head over to the nearest laundromat because our building and unit doesn't have one.

Very pet friendly for walking my dog. Lots of young people and near local long time pub where I can take my dog and chat and watch sports

The area has nice transportation system and good schools. We also have decent amount of restaurants. We need more restaurants and more public transportation

There is a bus too nearby that has four or five buses that stop there. Within the fence is decent people, nobody hanging out partying
