I agree with Julie W. This is a great mash up of activities, food, and architecture, If none of that is your thing, visit the Mall for the great people watching experience. A must if sightseeing in the city.

If you are looking to stay within your travel comfort zone, then the 16th street mall is your destination of choice. It's got everything you'd expect from the main strip of a major downtown metropolis. Homeless beggars, chain restaurants, street performers who lack real talents and that lingering smell of piss and weed. I'm not saying the 16th street mall... More

More cities should take a page out of Denver for this absolutely easy & convenient shopping plan. Free buses are the only vehicles allowed. Very wide & clean sidewalks allow for pedestrians to walk, shop , eat. I suppose many locals don't see the charm -- but it's a greatly planned mall area . Whether you're a visitor looking for...

Nice weekend activity. Take the light rail and enjoy the sites and sounds. The area is pretty during the holidays as it is lit up. Lots of restaurants and shopping.

I live to walk around on 16 th street to look at unique shops. Plus it is charming and I love looking at old buildings. Not allot of chain stores which is nice but not really many discount stores either. Tons of restaurants. Best in summer time.

16th Street mall is a great concept and could be a very high end pedestrian thoroughfare. I only walked a mile of it from the Westin downtown and south but this is not a place I would walk by myself at night. The buses are great in that they carry you all the way down to the end if you... More

This area offers both inside and outdoor mall-like stores and restaurants. Places along 16th street area are fairly touristy and even a bit seedy in some places. There are a good amount of homeless people that actually sleep in front of some of the tourist shops after they close, but the area feels very safe. There is a free shuttle... More

Avoid this unless you like pan handlers. All the nice shops have left. The Denver government is unable or unwilling to clean up the mall. Too bad because out of towers attending conventions downtown are left with a very bad impression of Denver.

Great way to see people. Some nice and some you would probably rather avoid. Great Free shuttle to go from one end to the other. Great way to see the full length without all the walking.
