“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Cozying up to downtown, this northwest neighborhood is growing so quickly that it has caused a confusion of contradicting borders on "official" maps. Despite some downtrodden areas on the opposite side of I-25, the crescent-shaped stretch on the downtown side along the Platte River is a definite hotspot. Families will enjoy Water Street attractions, including the Children's Museum and the Denver Aquarium. Outdoorsy Coloradans converge here on Denver's REI flagship store for adventure travel supplies. Summer days call for gondola rides in Confluence Park with Venice on the Platte or Segway tours of downtown.
