Country Club

#1

Yes, million-dollar price tags for some of the most attractive homes—er, mansions—in the city and an exclusive golf club hold a lot of appeal for those with stacked bank accounts, but these weren’t the only factors that rocketed Country Club to our number-one spot. The centrally located neighborhood offers easy access to downtown, Cherry Creek, Cheesman Park, and Washington Park; has the fourth-lowest crime rate in the city; and encompasses some of East Sixth Avenue’s hot spots.

How we got these numbers: We utilized the city’s official list of 78 neighborhoods (only 70 had enough data to be included), and ranked them using four variables: home prices, crime data, school rankings, and an X factor score that accounts for things like access to open space, proximity to public transportation, and restaurant and shopping options.

Your Itinerary

Eat & Drink

Fruition serves thoughtful, seasonal food that often incorporates ingredients from James Beard Award-winning executive chef Alex Seidel’s farm. Among the other limited options in this area are Satchel’s on 6th, which serves American comfort food, and Vietnamese cuisine at Pho on 6th. Those looking for a space to work or who simply want a great cup of joe should point themselves to Novo Coffee or Buzz Cafe.

For a broader selection, head just a few blocks east and gain access to all of Cherry Creek North’s offerings (we’re obsessed with Olive & Finch).

About That Golf Club

Country Club is primarily residential, but the heart of the neighborhood is Denver Country Club. Founded in 1887, it’s the oldest country club west of the Mississippi and among the oldest in the country. Members have access to a lot more than just golf, though; the facility also has indoor and outdoor tennis courts, an Olympic-size swimming pool, and a croquet pitch.
