At Exodus, we take pride in moving Colorado. As an internationally capable full service moving company, we see a lot of places. But with our main offices in Ft Collins and Denver, we can honestly say, there is no place like home. The people and culture of this area are what make it so lively and special. In an effort to highlight yet another great place to live in the Denver Metro area, this week we are talking about one of its most up and coming neighborhoods, Denver’s Cherry Creek.
In 1858, gold was discovered at the “Cherry Creek diggings” changing the area forever. This Front Range plateau giving way to a powerful creek, was not only a central point to the Pikes Peak Gold Rush, but soon became a vibrant center for trade. In 1950, the Cherry Creek damn was completed, forming Cherry Creek State Park and its Reservoir, creating more structure and form to its natural surroundings.
Today the neighborhood of Cherry Creek is still known for its “gold”. Located in South Central Denver, this posh and up and coming area is well known for its combination of natural beauty, breathtaking real estate and dynamic commerce.
Boasting an exemplary school system, Cherry Creek is known for its commitment to the education of its young people. Believing that students are the future of the community, the workforce and the progress of the world, the school district carries a high standard of excellence. A guiding quote of the administration is “All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.” – Aristotle
In addition to a top of the line school system, Cherry Creek boasts a thriving real estate market and an innately beautiful landscape. But Cherry Creek is perhaps best known for its shopping. Two major highlights within the area include the Cherry Creek Shopping Center and Cherry Creek North. While the shopping center is a highly acclaimed high end mall, the Cherry Creek North shopping and dining district covers 16 blocks and includes over 300 eateries, galleries and stores. Hosting both shopping and community events such as cinema festivals and recreational activities, it’s no wonder why Cherry Creek is fast becoming one of the most popular places to live and work in Denver Colorado.
