The city of Englewood is located directly south of Denver and right in the heart of the South Platte River Valley, east of the Front Range. Home to 30,000 residents, it’s an ideal place for those who enjoy a quieter small town feel with easy access to the big city lights of Denver. One thing that’s very confusing to people not familiar with the area is that Englewood is used as a mailing address over a wide swath of unincorporated Arapahoe county, which means you can live next to Cherry Creek Reservoir or even in Centennial and appear to have an Englewood address.
