I have been here many times. Would not recommend. I work around the 16th street mall. First of all the entire 16th street mall smells like urine/feces because homeless people piss/defecate in the alleys and when the garages in the buildings turn on their exhaust fans it comes up through the grates in the alleys and pushes the smell into...

There's a free bus that goes up and down 16th Street. No taxis which is nice. A very long, lovely street with many shops and restaurants. A worthwhile walk on a lovely day. Downtown Denver is easy to navigate. I drove in from Golden and took the Hwy. 25 and went right past the stadium. Just watch for the tall... More

Bus was very crowed on Sat. Lot of begging people, not sure they were all homeless. Many businesses of 40 years ago are gone, and some are difficult to recognize, where they were located. But it was an adventure in nostalgia.

This may be the best pedestrian shopping and dinning mall in the U S. Sidewalk dinning great shops and very pleasant people. Denverits should be prod not many cities can have something this nice downtown. Take the time to walk end to end so that you can pick and choose where to shop or dine. If you have a dog... More

This is a nice area with abundant restaurants and shopping. It looks like the city invested some money to make this a destination. There is also a bus line that is free and takes you up and down the strip. They did a great job but the area has attracted a dodgy loitering crowd. I'm not talking homeless people. I... More

16th St Mall was OK but nothing great. Getting a parking spot was difficult. After riding around for 45 minutes we found one in a lot on 14th St. When we walked one block the bums started asking for money. It seemed about every block a vagrant asked for something. Funniest part was seeing a bum asking me for money... More

Our plan for the day was to go drive from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science to Steve’s Snappin Dogs to Coors Field to see a Rockies game. Coming from Texas and having battled the game day traffic around the Rangers stadium we didn’t want to get caught up in an unfamiliar city’s downtown area and end up spending... More

Loved the buzz, the number of eateries, the shops, the pianos, the musicians and the general vibe! Oh, how could I fail to mention the free tram rides all day every day which provided not just free travel but an insight into who was in Denver
