Welcome to Denver
A small town on the banks of Lake Norman, surrounded by rural countryside
Rural living has its advantages, especially if you love the peaceful quietness that comes with it. Denver, North Carolina is quite different from another city with which it shares a name. You will not find a major metropolitan lifestyle here, but you will find a family-friendly community with plenty for everyone to do. Rural life usually comes with more space, both inside and out, and that is exactly what you will find in Denver. Homes have space for everyone to spread out and large yards perfect for entertaining friends and neighbors.
