CHERRY CREEK NORTH (3 miles southeast of Downtown Denver): The Cherry Creek neighborhood is named after the meandering Cherry Creek which runs to the south, with 22 miles of running trails and bike paths along its banks. This neighborhood is an upscale enclave where ultra-modern, exquisite luxury homes, town-homes and condos mingle with charming, tree-framed bungalows. Cherry Creek hosts Denver’s most prestigious shopping center, the Cherry Creek Mall, as well as the fashionable salons, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and cafes of Cherry Creek North (a pedestrian-friendly place to see and be seen.) This charming 16-block outdoor shopping and dining district also hosts the annual world-class Cherry Creek Arts Festival in July. The Cherry Creek neighborhood is bounded by 6th Ave, Colorado Blvd, Alameda & University.
