Sunnyside is known as a city-center neighborhood and is located in the northwest part of Denver. It borders the Highland neighborhood and runs from 38th Avenue north to Interstate 70 and from Federal Boulevard east to Inca Street. Sunnyside has seen a great turn around since the late 80s/early 90s. The formation of Sunnyside United Neighbors, Inc. helped in making Sunnyside desirable after a great recession in the 1980s. The neighborhood is zoned mostly for two-story buildings and single family homes, which enables it to retain a lot of the old time character and charm. There are also a lot of new businesses popping up all over Sunnyside such as coffee shops, high end restaurants, craft breweries, and much more.

Berkeley is located just west of Sunnyside and is bounded by Federal Boulevard, I-70, Sheridan Boulevard, and 38th avenue. Often times, Berkeley is grouped together with the Highlands neighborhood yet they have some differences and are not to be confused. Berkeley contains 2 lakes that are surrounded by parks, a rarity in Denver, they are known as Berkeley Lake Park and Rocky Mountain Lake Park. A lot of the homes in the neighborhood are still original bungalows and ranch-style homes but now we are starting to see brand new structures and stunning remodels being built all throughout Berkeley. The neighborhood's residents are worth mentioning as well... They bring a great energy and good vibes, electrifying the neighborhood and bringing their own uniqueness to the streets. Be sure not to miss Tennyson Square when you visit Berkeley; known for its restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, and art.
