Hip area!

A fun and vibrant area. Lots of restaurants and bars. Super area to wander and people watch. If the weather is nice, grab a drink on a patio!

There are many restaurants and bars to visit, like PF Chang and shopping, like Patagonia. It's fun to walk around and look at everything. However, if the Rockies are playing it will be very crowded.

The scultures, the old church in the background, and people walking everywhere...and hybrid buses hauling you around for free! The aromas of restaurants, too...great development of the area.

Downtown Denver has several pleasant neighborhoods; for the past ~25 years this has been one of them. Before then, the area had hit hard times. But a kernel of investment by the current governor and some partners started the ball rolling (with the Wynkoop Brewery pub). Could the place be called "trendy"? Perhaps.

Nice area. WE spent most of our time there. You can walk or bike pretty much anywhere. A lot of homeless in certain parts. People pretty friendly.

Everything we need was waiting right outside the door on the 16th Street shopping Mall and tons of great restaurants too! Will return!

This the second time I have been there. It only gets better. Nothing better sitting on an outside patio, drinking a beer overlooking the Rockies in the distance as the sun goes down.
