In Denver over weekend. Got a late start to go out on Saturday night. Thought this sounded like our "universal citiwalk" or "South St. Promenade"...could be it was too late? 10PM? but not much happening. Lot's of places open to eat and drink. Saw a couple of "Horses" out giving rides. Ended up in the Sheraton and used their business... More

16th Street is a pedestrian area except for the complimentary bus service which runs from Union Station at one end to almost the State Capital at the other end. It covers many interesting areas, the nicest being Larimer Square. Here you can find many good restaurants and boutiques. Writers Square is next. There are chess stations for anyone to play,...

Downtown Denver was a very clean exciting area. While they are doing several building constructions in the area, it was still easy to get around and find parking. The 16th St. Mall was a wonderful walk. So many shops, food, etc. Found plenty of souvenirs and checked out the Capital at the end of the mall area as well. Watch... More

The 16th Street Pedestrian Mall sounds like a perfect way to shop and stroll while in Denver. But don't bother. It's all chain stores and feels a bit run-down, not to mention the numerous homeless people begging for money. Head over to Larimar Square instead. It's small … only a block long but a number of restaurants and unique shops.

The Mall has gotten much worse than years before, unless we just had the unfortunate experience of “to bad that happen to you. We went into Good Times Burger, I could not use the restroom until I made a purchase. Then my wife had a homeless person in the booth next to us make filthy remarks to her. After that,... More

Just walk along 16th street to see the street long mall with restaurants. A great way to experience some of Downtown Denver. No cars on the street, just public transportation.

Plain and simple, just too many around. It put such a damper on what we thought was going to be a spectacular night in Denver. There was even a "F$#K the Cops" protest right down the middle of 16th. We made it to a few decent spots close to Coor's field, but went home early to avoid the trashiness and... More

There were some great shops on 16th street, but it's too touristy and a bit trashy in certain parts. Larimer is the place to be for classier boutiques and better food

Lots of stores and restaurants. Street performers are always giving good shows. Also highly recommend Illegal Pete's at the end of 16th street mall between Wazee St and Blake St. Amazing food and great prices. Overall 16th Street mall is a nice little walk and a good time to sit at a restaurant and people watch before Avs games, Rockies... More

Have not been to this place for a couple of years. Strolled through last weekend. This place is a dump now. Way too many hobos. Pan handling every corner of the block. Pot smoking everywhere. The hobos really ruin the atmosphere. I am not even sure it is safe. Common city of Denver, get off your butt and do something... More
