It is easy to understand the Cherry Creek neighborhood’s namesake. Cherry Creek passes through the neighborhood on its way to the confluence with the South Platte River near Lower Downtown Denver. The early settlers of Denver headed east of “the city” to escape the grime and the congestion. Imagine that in the late 1800’s! If you are going to move elsewhere, it is always best to be near a water source, hence the settlement in the area of current day Cherry Creek. You can still find the old Victorian houses from the early days through-out Cherry Creek.
Ask anyone in Denver where the best place to go shopping and they will simply say “Cherry Creek”. They won’t be referring to a single store or a single shopping center, they will be talking about the whole of the Cherry Creek neighborhood. The Cherry Creek North shopping district is an outdoor shopping experience that covers 16-blocks with over 300 restaurants, boutique shops, art galleries, bistros, spas and more. The Cherry Creek Mall is a 2-story enclosed traditional shopping mall with over 160-stores and many restaurants. Here you will find Nordstroms, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and other high-end retailers.
Aside from the upscale retail experience, the Cherry Creek neighborhood has many estates and luxury mid-rise condominium complexes. As you might expect, Cherry Creek housing is expensive. Aside from the shopping and eating, the 22-mile Cherry Creek Path is just out your door for biking, walking, or running. In fact, you can go all the way to Riverfront Park in the downtown area.
