Get to know LoHi

Lower Highland, or LoHi, is a vibrant part of town that’s enormously popular to live in, thanks to its welcoming vibe, hipster foodie scene, and easy access to downtown. You might also hear Denver natives refer to the area as Northside, which encompasses the greater North Denver. Anyone living in the nabe knows that you’re just a few blocks (at most) away from plenty of cool independent eateries, including a street food–inspired restaurant inside a former mortuary or an ice cream shop inside a 28-foot-tall metal can. Thanks to its location on a hill, LoHi offers panoramic views of Downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains from its many restaurant rooftops and patios. The neighborhood restricts any structure to three stories or fewer, preserving the sightlines. LoHi is great for car-free commuting, too, including strolling or riding your fixie over the pedestrian Highland Bridge, which connects the area to downtown.

LoHi Living in Denver

The sky’s the limit in the Mile-High City, where the maverick spirit of the old west meets a modern metropolis as cutting edge as they come. First settled as part of Kansas Territory during the Pike’s Peak gold rush and initially called Montana City, the once rough-and-tumble settlement was later renamed for territorial governor James W. Denver — the name stuck, though like Dorothy it’s not in Kansas anymore. Denver has served as Colorado’s state capital since its admission to the union on August 1st, 1876. While there’s history everywhere, Denver has downloaded every possible upgrade: it’s one of America’s most advanced cities, from its high-tech business hubs to sleek, new electric commute trains that glide between downtown and the airport. The soaring metropolis—also a county—has 78 defined neighborhoods in total, from Victorian-castled Capitol Hill to the postindustrial-chic RiNo arts district. Couple that with world-class outdoor recreation, from trees to shining skis, and there’s just about every reason to give Denver a Rocky Mountain “hi.”
