Sunnyside offers close proximity to downtown Denver and Highlands
Bounded by Federal Boulevard, I-25, 38th St., and I-70, the peaceful neighborhood of Sunnyside offers close proximity to downtown Denver and Highlands (two more crowded areas), and a lovely, family-centered feeling.
Good Food and Friends
Restaurants like San Carlos offer homemade tortillas and tamales, as do most other delightful neighborhood restaurants. You’ll also find genuine western wear at El Centavito, the place to go for a Colorado-cowboy hat.
Large trees line the streets of this older neighborhood, providing ample shade and beautiful accent to Victorian and ranch homes. The houses in this neighborhood are almost all brick, with fantastic, large front porches-perfect for the quiet evenings this neighborhood inspires. Also to note are the low (and sometimes non-existent) fences in the area – seems the people here truly do like their neighbors.
Sunnyside’s ‘community’ goal is reflected in the organization of Sunnyside United Neighbors, Inc. (SUNI). This organization keeps neighbors up to date on important issues, fun events, and who’s-who in the area. Two fabulous events that reflect the character of Sunnyside are the Umatilla Block Party and the Sunnyside Music Festival, both of which offer locals a chance to appreciate this wonderful neighborhood.
