Over the past 10 years, Colorado’s housing costs have skyrocketed—and apartment rents are no exception. But not all areas of the state are created equal in that regard, and the rent in some zip codes has increased more than others.

According to RentCafe, an apartment search website, nine out of the 10 most expensive neighborhoods for renters in the state are in Denver. (Even so, renters will be happy to know that Denver’s apartment rents didn’t make the U.S. top 50. While the Cherry Creek, Cheesman, and Congress Park neighborhoods topped Colorado’s list, their zip code only ranked 225 nationwide.)

Here are Colorado’s top 10 most expensive neighborhoods and their average rents, from most to least expensive:

80206 (Cherry Creek, Cheesman Park, Congress Park) $2,454

80209 (Washington Park, Belcaro) $2,325

80202 (LoDo) $2,229

80204 (West Colfax, Lincoln Park) $2,126

80301 (Boulder) $2,118

80211 (Sunnyside, Highland and other northwest neighborhoods) $2,057

80216 (Globeville, Elyria-Swansea), $1,981)

80238 (Stapleton) $1,931
