Vibrant! tons of dining, movies, bowling, snacking, drinking, people watching, more than 200 shopping stops and free ride. Certainly it's d best shopping street I've ever seen.

I had been to downtown Denver and the 16th Street Mall briefly in past years and wanted to finally take the time to stop and see what it had to offer. Well..............basically nothing. The 16th Street Mall is nothing but so-so restaurant after so-so restaurant, with one very expensive leather clothing store and a few seedy gift shops mixed in.... More

The last time I was in Denver, the 16th St Mall wasn't as crowded and the trees weren't as big. I remember it as cleaner. It had the homeless people back then, but now there are more buildings, The Pavilion wasn't built yet. I appreciated the movie theater, so staying downtown had everything I needed to make an overnight stay... More

I would have to agree with the other reviewers. This area is dirty, smells like urine, and has many homeless people - some will approach you asking for money. I think it's relatively safe, but I can't say that I was all that comfortable walking around. We went in the evening as well as during the day. The police monitor... More

Could be a really nice place. Get rid of all the bums. Made our experience very uncomfortable. Clean this place up to better display your fine city.

We had an extra day in Denver while there for a family wedding and decided to spend "a couple of hours" at the 16th Street Mall. We were totally wowed and spent many hours happily wandering along this amazing, shady, one-mile stretch of shops, restaurants, art displays and so much more. First of all, we were happily surprised that this... More

never been to Denver this was my first time there, but it is dirty in a lot of places, smells like pee, and attracts homeless asking you for money. People watching is great here, there are some good restaurants and if you are staying downtown its easy to walk down there for food or drinks just not to late because... More

We recently stayed near the 16th Street Mall, while at Comic Con! It was a great little experience to walk up and down the shopping area and my husband and I took a romantic ride in a horse drawn carriage! It was fun and the carriage driver was very helpful with his recommendations for dinner!

Visited here for the second time and it was a disgrace compared to my first visit. There were homeless people everywhere and the area just looked so much more rundown from what I remembered it being a year and a half ago. The shops are great and there is a lot to do here, but the city needs to work... More
