Amazing shopping!

I found some excellent deals for my daughter at Forever 21. The shopping all along this area is great with lots of restaurants for breaks in between. The only hard part was seeing... read more

The idea is nice, an outdoor mall with stone pathways, but the follow through isn't there. The stores are very run of the mill (Forever 21, Express and Victoria Secrets) But unfortunately those are the nicest places to go. Outside of the main mall are small touristy shops and chain restaurants. As a tourist, not a street I would have... More

I found some excellent deals for my daughter at Forever 21. The shopping all along this area is great with lots of restaurants for breaks in between. The only hard part was seeing the homeless and not being able to help all of them. Breaks your heart, especially when they come to your table in a restaurant to ask for... More

As a long-time resident of downtown Denver, I avoid the 16th Mall whenever possible, The sidewalks are littered with panhandlers, pot smokers, and generally unsavory characters. Although pot smoking in public is illegal, no one enforces the law so you can expect to get a whiff of the sweet air at every corner. Except for the Denver Pavilions at Welton... More

We live up in the mountains and go down to Denver once or twice a summer for Rockies games and a good steakhouse. In the past we have stayed downtown, but this summer we are planning to stay a bit outside downtown due to one factor - the 16th Street Mall is awful and simply is not an attraction for... More

Usually when I'm on business trips I don't have time to do any shopping but this trip was a little different. The 16th street mall was located fairly close to my hotel so I could walk over a few times a day if I had the chance. The Hot Topic that I went in had a nice layout and the... More

It's a nice idea having a pedestrian mall in the middle of a big city but there really isn't anything remarkable here. On weekend days it is crowded with hip urbanites, families, skate boarders, cyclists, and tourists. We learned the hard way that at night it is full of nefarious people wandering in packs. Not good. But during a visit... More

Since we first started going to downtown Denver decades ago, the area has improved dramatically. The 16th St Mall is a great place to visit whether you enjoy awesome restaurants, cool shops, comedy/theatre, relaxing at a bar or just people watching, but your visit should be timed to avoid Fridays/Saturdays after 10 to avoid the late night unsavory characters.

The 16th street mall is an eclectic blend of hip and practical. There are many bars of different themes and plenty of places to get anything you want to eat. It is a great walking street but if you need a ride, mall shuttles run all day from Union Station to the far end of 16th. Many of the downtown... More

The 16th Street Mall is a long street lined with restaurants, shops and bars. It connects the art and government district on one end to the train station on the other. There is a great free shuttle that runs up and down the mall all day and late into the evening. It made getting from one place to another very... More

This place has some charm. An entire street area is a busy city which is blocked off for pedestrians to stroll. The problem is, the stores are run of the mill, and it seems to be a haven for those who would prey upon tourists. Despite a somewhat heavy police presence, there were active groups of youth creating trouble and... More
