Cherry Creek Lifestyle Guide 

From art to eats, here’s what this beautiful city is all about!
 
 
There are few things more picturesque than Colorado in the winter, and the Rocky Mountain-adjacent towns like Cherry Creek are the stuff of fairy tales. Anyone who moves here is lucky to find their own piece of Cherry Creek real estate in this beautiful neighborhood.
 
However, like any location, Cherry Creek locals live a particular lifestyle. So before you move to one of the gorgeous condos or homes in the area, here’s what you should know about life in Cherry Creek. 

Shopping in Cherry Creek

If there’s one thing you need to know about Cherry Creek real estate, it’s that it has one of the rare thriving mall cultures in America. Both Cherry Creek Shopping Center and Cherry Creek North are still staples of this town. However, a lot of that has to do with both shopping centers evolving to fit the locals’ needs; while shopping is a big part, they have a lot more to offer. 
 
For example, Cherry Creek North has more than 15 small art galleries to explore and an elaborate Rocky Mountain Play Park for children to enjoy. They also host events and even have some residential apartments in the outdoor shopping complex. Cherry Creek North brands itself more as a community space than a shopping center, which works well for nearby residents. 

Art

Once you’ve finished looking at Cherry Creek condos for sale and bought one of your own, you’ll want to connect to the community around you. One way to do that is to get involved in the local arts. Visit the Philadelphia Print Shop West or the Fascination St. Fine Art galleries to view local artwork. Both shops offer unique pieces, so you can buy paintings or prints that help your new home look the part. 
 
If you’re looking for something more interactive, head to the Cherry Creek Arts Festival. This July event celebrates art in a wide variety of mediums, from sculptures to photography, chalk art to jewelry. Creativity is encouraged and thriving here each year!

Nature parks 

It’s almost impossible to live in a Colorado city and not have the local wildlife become a big part of your lifestyle. In Cherry Creek alone, there are more than a dozen parks, including Cherry Creek National Park, Cook Park, and Confluence Park.

A trip to the Denver Botanical Gardens is a great way to enjoy Colorado’s nature if you need a different, unique option. After all, you don’t need hiking boots to enjoy this version of Denver’s natural wonders!
 
Whether you live in one of the many Cherry Creek condos for sale or your own free-standing home, it’s impossible to ignore the many natural wonders of the neighborhood. 

Rest & relaxation

Unlike some other places around the country, Cherry Creek real estate residents know how to rest, relax, and take care of themselves. Whether it’s to destress from a hard workday, maintain a fabulous personal image, or enjoy the full extent of retirement, Cherry Creek has a world of specialty options for self-care. 
 
There are dozens of spas and hair salons, but there are also more niche places like lash studios, wax centers, nail spas, skin care shops, and even well-trained plastic surgeons. Cherry Creek is the kind of place you go to look and feel like your best self. 
 
It’s not all about your body, though. You can also find classic entertainment at places like the Cherry Creek AMC, a deluxe movie theater with oversized, cozy chairs and full meals. Sit back and be entertained, giving your brain a much-needed break from a busy workday.

Food

No town is complete with its local eats, and for Cherry Creek, that’s places like True Food Kitchen, Barolo Grill, and Cherry Cricket. Some of their top restaurants are from chic, gourmet restaurant chains around the country, but others are Cherry Creek classics like the Cherry Cricket that won’t budge no matter how popular the city gets. Whether you prefer a suit and red wine or a beer and your Bermudas, there’s someplace to eat in Cherry Creek for you. 
 
However, if you’re interested in cooking at home but aren’t quite good at it, Cherry Creek condos for sale also have the top-notch Create Cooking School nearby, where you can learn to be your own chef. This can be a fun date with your partner or a way to relax and improve yourself on the weekend, but either way, it’s a great experience. 

Events

 
Cherry Creek has an event or two for every season. It’s the kind of community that likes to come together and enjoy traditional holidays. So, if this kind of socializing is your style, don’t miss these classic Cherry Creek events
 
During the spring months, Cherry Creek real estate owners enjoy Love Cherry Creek North for Valentine’s, Denver Restaurant Week for some delicious eats, and the Smash Fine Arts Festival to connect with their creative side. Be on the lookout for the Cherry Creek North Sidewalk Sale for good deals in the summer. If you prefer a bit of refinery, though, the Cherry Creek North Food & Wine festival might be more up your alley. 
 
For crafters, the Handmade in Colorado Expo is the most exciting time of the year, where you can see or sell some of the best artisan goods in the entire state. By the end of the year, Cherry Creek celebrates its local entrepreneurs with the Cherry Creek North Small Business Weekend before having a classic, community-wide Winter Wonderland event to round off the chilly season.
