This was my 5th visit to Denver - it s a great city and I travel here when the opportunity arises. I love the avenue, it is fun to see the state capitol and then make my way down to Union Station.. I love walking and it is perfect for people watching. For me, there isn't a wow factor.. for... More

6th-Street Mall is a really interesting concept of a street not open for public traffic with lots of different shops and restaurants. At every junction to other streets, there is a bus stop for the complimentary bus service along the mall, serviced by Hybrid buses.

It's worth a look if you are staying downtown Denver, but probably not worth a seperate trip. The best thing about the 16th Street Mall is the frequent and free trollies that will take you up and down the blocks. There are lots of great places to eat along 16th street, and if you are looking for food and drink... More

We stayed at the downtown Homewood Suites. After a long day of travel, we were happy to be able to walk to the 16th Street Mall to get food and a craft beer at the Rock Bottom Brewery. Lots of fun to walk up and down the street later and see the sights, including a guy playing a piano in... More

Loved the concept of the mall with all its restaurants and shops. Loved the free bus shuttle that went from one end to the other. Sad to see so many disenfranchised young people, stoned, hanging out and asking for money. Never did I feel frightened or intimidated but rather sad to see such a waste of able bodied young people.... More

This 16 blocks of outdoor pedestrian "mall" provides something for many urban tastes, but is not for those who get uncomfortable outside of a suburban mall environment. Free buses make it easy to move up and down 16th Street from near Union Station to near the State Capitol, adjacent to many downtown hotels and attractions. Along the way there are... More

It was really neat having this strip-mall handy. My first trip to Denver I left my phone charger at home.......Had it not been for this mall I would have been SOL for the entire trip. Not to mention my phone was my GPS on how to arrive at my final destination. Thank You 16th Street Mall, You Are A Life... More

Not sure why you need to see this, because you don't. It is a street with shops and restaurants on each side. Nothing special really and I don't get why this is even on Tripadvisor.

If you're thinking of the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, that isn't what this is. There are however great restaurants and the street/area has a bit of charm and some shopping. It is a great area for sporting events and the art museum.

Denver's 16th Street Open Air Mall is full of interesting shops, restaurants, movie theaters, bowling alley, etc. It is a local night time, walkable destination. It is traffic free except for the buses that provide free transportation up and down the mall. The mall is many blocks long so the bus service can be a welcome amenity. The only drawback... More
