Rocky Mountain Highland


The view crossing the bridge that links downtown with the Highlands


The Highland neighborhood of Denver occupies roughly 250 acres just northwest of downtown. Its streets are quiet and lined with mature trees, but it stays connected to the pulse of the city via the Highland, Millennium, and  Platte River Bridges.  As you head west to Tennyson street, the Highland Square district has a notably small town vibe that is both chic and chocked full of culture. Friendly and full of charm, its trendy shopping and eclectic mix of eateries will have you wondering why you need to venture anywhere else.
