"Southeast Crossing - A busy area of town"

Southeast Crossing is located just off of I-225 at one of the busiest sections of this highway. During peak travel times it can seem to take forever getting through the bottleneck. They are currently doing construction on the highway to alleviate the problem, but as of yet they haven't made it this far. Both Iliff Avenue and Chambers Road are also busy streets that border this neighborhood. While traffic is a downside to living here, there are benefits as well. Southeast Crossing is located rather close to Cherry Creek Reservoir which has numerous activities for outdoor lovers. Bicycling, nature walks, swimming, and boating are just a few. This neighborhood is also located close to a stop for the light rail. This public transportation option can take riders to the Park Meadows Mall area or to downtown Denver, all for a small fee. There are also numerous bus stops within the area for those who chose not to drive.

Within the neighborhood there are some restaurants and shopping. Gander Mountain is an outdoor sportsman's paradise with all it has to offer. Near the corner of I-225 and Iliff Avenue there are always a number of restaurants to choose from, although I have never really understood why they seem to change so often. There used to be a great restaurant called Hops here, which also brewed their own beer. The food was great and they always seemed to be busy, then one day they were just gone. This isn't the only restaurant in this area to just disappear either. Maybe it's the economy, or another issue I'm unaware of, but I always call ahead of time before planning on going to eat at a restaurant here as I never know if they will still be in business. One staple that seems to be successful is Rosie's Diner. This is a traditional, old time diner where you can get good burgers, fries, and shakes, just like it was in the 50s. The decor is nostalgic as well and it's a fun place to go to once in a while.

There are many single family homes in this neighborhood, with a median price tag around $180,000. Many of them were built in the late 70s and are a bi-level style. Although the home prices are good, I wouldn't recommend this neighborhood for families with school aged children as they schools they would go to are all below average when it comes to state testing standards.
  • lower priced homes
