Get to know Cherry Creek

Nestled along its namesake tributary of the South Platte River, Cherry Creek is a mixed-density corner of Denver that’s an ideal balance of old and new, commercial and residential, lively and tranquil. It’s well-known for its shopping, and you’ll find everything from Louis Vuitton to a truffle cheesemonger. Cherry Creek Center, built over an old mine pit, is one of Denver’s preeminent shopping malls, and it's a motherlode of luxury retail with outposts from world-renowned brands. The neighborhood’s southern tier lies along the Cherry Creek Trail, a paved 40-mile affair stretching from the heart of downtown at Confluence Park and onward through Arapahoe and Douglas counties. New-build apartment and condo buildings contrast older, single-family stock, offering a full menu of options for those looking to call it home.
