How to Live Like You’re In Downtown Denver Without the Hassle
Sheridan Station: Easy Access to Downtown Denver
Downtown Denver rocks. You can enjoy 300 days of Colorado sunshine in city parks, restaurant rooftops, and brewery patios. The art and music scene is always evolving, so you’ll never run out of new events and places to check out. Plus, the economy is booming with jobs across all industries. We love downtown Denver, but… actually living in that area can be a real hassle.
The traffic gets crazy, especially after a big snowstorm hits the city. If you can’t walk or bike to work, be prepared to fight for parking spaces. Because the culture downtown is so awesome, it’s attracting more and more people to the area. Downtown Denver is getting crowded and expensive — fast.
Despite all that, people still want to experience the perks of living there, preferably without dealing with all the drawbacks. Our advice? Go west: consider opting for a townhome in a nearby suburb like Lakewood. With Sheridan Station close to downtown Denver, you’ll have everything you need for city living and outdoor living.
Perks of Townhomes in Lakewood
We know you still want to live close enough to take advantage of what downtown Denver offers. The great thing about living in Lakewood is its proximity to Sheridan Station. Sheridan Station is just five stops from downtown Denver, making your work commute short and easy. Plus, it’s only seven stops from Golden on the W Line. Whether you need a dose of mountain air or a night out in downtown Denver, you have easy access to both from Lakewood.
When you move to Lakewood, you also have more space to spread out compared to the city, especially in a townhome. Would you rather rent a cramped (and pricey) studio apartment right in the hustle-and-bustle of downtown? Or would you prefer a spacious townhome in Lakewood with a garage, extra storage space, fully decked out kitchen and bath, and a balcony? We know what we’d pick. Colorado is also known for its beautiful nature, so why not take advantage of it by living outside of the city?
Don’t go into downtown Denver that often? There’s plenty to do in and around Lakewood. There’s the 40 West Arts district in Lakewood’s historic West Colfax neighborhood, where art lovers can appreciate public art installations and free community events. Nearby Sloan’s Lake has endless options for local restaurants and cafes, plus a path around the lake that fitness enthusiasts can enjoy. And of course, Lakewood is near a ton of parks and trails, including William F. Hayden Green Mountain Park, Bear Creek Lake Park, and the iconic Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre.
