Named the best place to live in Colorado by ranking site, Holly Hills doesn’t have the same name recognition as better known areas like Boulder or Wash Park. So why should this area be on your radar? Well, out of the 513 areas in Colorado that Niche ranked, Holly Hills – a neighborhood of around 2,800 people – hit the trifecta of being named not only as of the best place to live but also the best place to raise a family and the best place to retire.

Located about halfway between downtown Denver and the Denver Tech Center, Holly Hills is nestled between Monaco Parkway and Interstate 25, north of Hampden Avenue and south of East Iliff Avenue.

The area is made up primarily of residential real estate built between 1940 and 1969. Homes here are generally considered older and well-established.
