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.

LoDo was awesome! Almost too awesome! There are so many shops, restaurants and bars in one area. Perfect place to walk around and people watch.

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

This was a good place to walk around and get a feel for the city. Like any city, certain blocks didn't look like much, so be aware of your surrounding, but there are lots of good places to see, eat, and browse.

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.

If your planning a trip to Denver, and are already set on going, then you have to check out LoDo. Known as Lower Downtown, this is the best place in downtown to catch it all. Wonderful shopping, restaurants, and nightlife, LoDo has something for everyone....One of the best places to experience the Denver culture and excitement!

Three years ago I was in Denver, and explored various areas, LoDo was just emerging. Amazing difference three years make. Union Station is going through a major re-haul, the new structures look great. MCA fun, but, never fully curated. Love Larimar Square, good people-watching, restaurants, and, locally owned stores. While in Denver find the RiNo District, a fast-growing arts community... More

LoDo, as the neighborhood is called, is a well executed urban renewal project. It hits all the right notes one would expect, with a wide variety of statuary, benches, chess boards, gardens, etc etc. It plays host to the 16th St Mall, which as the review title implies, is the shopping heart of Denver. You can expect to find all... More

I agree that the place has gotten seedier over the years (this was my 3rd time there.) but it is till a decent place to walk and eat with a lot of choices. I did not see "dive-looking bars" at least along 16th street. The art museum itself is worth a look if you are interested in modern art; it... More
