Cap Hill

Located just north of Denver’s downtown, Capitol Hill pales in comparison to the large, vertical reaches of the business district, but its buildings have a charm all their own since most of them were built around the 1920s. The Colorado State Capitol Building is a well known attraction within this urban culture hub, along with Civic Center Park, a venue for many downtown events and festivals. Many of the houses are older, but this area has become a popular location for millennials. You’ll even find historic apartment complexes in this neighborhood called “Poet’s Row,” named after the likes of Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost. Fittingly, Alan Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac once resided in this area. The beautiful Cheeseman Park is nestled on the edge of Capitol Hill as well.
