This mixed-use district, made up of sophisticated city-street shopping and dining, has become a Denver staple. The area's 16 walkable blocks boast nearly 600 businesses, ranging from fashion boutiques and spas to art galleries and restaurants. Stroll down the tree-lined streets and enjoy modern architecture, chef-driven dining and a plethora of both independent and international retailers (think: Design Within Reach, Eddie Bauer, the Hermitage Bookshop, Kendra Scott and Sur La Table). In addition to its mix of classic and contemporary retail and restaurants, Cherry Creek North also offers a year-round lineup of events, including the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Denver Arts Week and Mile High Holidays in Cherry Creek North.
