The vibrant and much sought-after neighborhood of the Denver Highlands is comprised of three sections: Lower Highlands (LoHi), The Highlands (W 32nd St.) and Tennyson St. Each encompassing their own vibrant flare, new restaurants seem to be popping-up just as quickly as million-dollar, ultra-modern homes. Young families flock to this trendy area where you can find nationally acclaimed farm-to-table restaurants, happy hours galore and a unique nightlife.
In addition, the labeled “Highlands” denotes that you’re in the highest part of the city, which means exceptional views and a multitude of rooftop patios to choose from. The perfect Highlands day can start at Confluence Park, where you can find the Platte River. Running directly through the city, the Platte acts as a border to the beginning of the Highlands area. Rent a kayak, enjoy the park and utilize the pedestrian bridge to reach the many trendy Highland haunts. Bikes are always easily accessible in Denver and using them to explore all three sections of the neighborhood is a perfect way to experience the Highlands.
