The Highlands






Where else in Denver would you come across a cardboard sign propped on a barricade that says, "Street closed, block party?" Cut off from the central part of Denver by I-25, LoHi is where people who love the city, but are over carrying groceries for six blocks and taking out a loan to pay accumulated parking tickets, live. LoHi neighbors let the city in through loft windows (we're on a hill after all) and often work from its cafes and restaurants. The LoHi Music Festival in August is gaining in popularity and the brewing industry has followed Denver beer lovers into this outlying neighborhood. Even further removed from central Denver than LoHi, the Highlands attracts professionals and families who operate within their own parameters. Pieces of the neighborhood remain unpolished -- which is part of its attraction.
