Beautiful outside mall.

Nice design and love the free shuttle up and down the mall. Great choices for breakfast and lunch. Easy to find.

Went with the wife. Was hoping for more local type shops. Im not much of a shopper myself so it wasn't the best time for me. Im a county guy don't go the city's that much so it was depressing seeing the amount of homeless that were on that section of denver.

I am a true Colorado native and I don't recognize what this mall has become. It was truly scary walking around at night. I know they have been trying to clean it up and make it more safe. Until they do, don't walk on 16th alone. Go one block over, way safer!

Some shopping available but not my favorite place. A few chain stores along this strip as well. Not much here in dining.

I visited on a business trip and will likely be back. The 16th street mall is very convenient and becoming the place to be. The old Union station has very comfortable "living room like" furniture and interesting restaurants. All up and down the street you may find healthy inexpensive restaurants like Panera as well as more expensive local restaurants. I... More

Still fun to walk down the mall for exercise but the street people/ homeless still all over the place. If only they would ban smoking on the mall it would be perfect.

I grew up in Denver and remember ( 1940s and 1950 s ) the 16th street with street cars and great department stores like May Company, Daniel & Fishers and Neusteters. Fast forward to 2015 and the pluses are no car traffic, walking and easy bus transportation. Proximity to LoDo is a major plus. However, the negatives are too many... More

I was staying at a downtown hotel for a business conference and didn't have a rental car. The 16th Street Mall was a nice diversion that was close by and walkable. Shops ranging from souvenir trinkets to higher end jewelry and clothing and food opportunities from food trucks to white table cloth options are everywhere. Are there homeless people? Sure,... More

Got off bus at union station, rode free mall ride, shopped, ate, drank. Great people watching. Best Walgreen's ever, a lady on the ride told us we should go and wssbshe right. I guess it's a flagship store. Even has sushi. Pick a patio and watch people go by.

When I came to this spot in the early 80's it was family friendly. Now it is dangerous and you should never bring you kids down here. Everything smells like pot, urine, or just plan scary people. It's sad because it used to be nice, but I don't feel safe here.
