Jefferson Park

This cozy enclave still has a rich Latino heritage and provides a lower-cost option—with equal access to northwest Denver’s amenities and striking views of downtown—than the more established Highland neighborhood to the north. The Speer and I-25 borders funnel traffic around the area rather than through it, which makes the streets surprisingly quiet, day and night, and many of the modest homes are ripe for remodeling or flipping. Despite the area’s proximity to Invesco, the chaos is minimal on football Sundays thanks to a well-run traffic-management plan, and JP’s average of 46 DOM shows how quickly its properties are moving.
