The Golden Triangle
Directly south of downtown Denver and located between of three of the city's busiest streets: Speer Boulevard, Colfax Avenue and Lincoln Street, the Golden Triangle is a very artistic and cultured neighborhood. Golden Triangle encompasses eight museums in total, including the Denver Art Museum and the History Colorado Center, and several civic organizations like Civic Center Park. Some parts of the Golden Triangle overlap with the Capitol Hill and the Civic Center neighborhood has similar boundaries.
One of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver, the Golden Triangle has undergone numerous changes throughout the years. Today the Golden Triangle has been revived and reconstructed into upscale lofts, condos and apartments. Now, more of a multi-functional neighborhood, the Golden Triangle has seen a wide variety of businesses, restaurants and galleries replace parking lots. The area is growing rapidly and can be traced to recent improvements of the Denver Art Museum and the Denver Public Library. More art lovers and cultural enthusiasts are moving into the area to have easy access to Denver's best cultural influences. Another huge draw of the Golden Triangle area is its central location and proximity to all of Denver's entertainment.
One of the best ways to experience the Golden Triangle is to ride the "Art Bus," a free shuttle on the first Friday of most months that chauffeurs art lovers from gallery to gallery.
