Denver streets are busy with pedestrians, auto, bicycle traffic and other goings on. It's a real urban core in every sense of the word. Even the various neighborhoods like Capitol hill, Washington Park, City Park, Congress Park, Cherry Creek, Highlands, Curtis Park, Five Points, etc. have their own vibes and "busy-ness". That's why I love living here. There's always something going on, and yet, it's quite a smallish, manageable city.
Once a Cowtown, always a Cowtown!!
