Cherry Creek

Probably Denver’s most sophisticated neighborhood, Cherry Creek is home to high-end shopping — from Jonathan Adler to Hermes to Arteryx — and some of the best restaurants in town. No matter what time of year you visit, it’s humming with residents and visitors enjoying the endless blocks of shopping, dining, spas, and art galleries.

The neighborhood is synonymous with shopping, from the mall, which boasts the top department stores and retail chains in the country, to boutiques and galleries that line the streets of Cherry Creek North. Housewares, furniture, outdoor apparel — it’s all there. Throughout the year, Cherry Creek holds arts festivals, sidewalk sales, Lemonade Days, farmers’ markets, and holiday festivities, so there’s always something fun to check out.
