We visited Denver in February. The weather on the Saturday we were there was unusually warm so we were able to walk on 16th street from near the capital building on the south end to LoDo on the north end. There is a nice bus system that is free and will pick you up and drop you off anywhere along... More

I recently stayed at a hotel right on the mall for a business event. I was quite surprised by the number of fairly aggressive/menacing homeless individuals who were encamped outside my hotel. It was a very cold, snowy weekend, so there weren't many tourists about (except for a LOT of girls basketball teams). There aren't many shopping venues on this... More

We were lucky enough to visit Denver during the snowiest Feb in 103 years. It was cold and damp but still didn't take away from the fun of the 16th Street Mall. There are both retail-chain stores, like BN Bookstore and GAP, but also regional specialities. The layout is unque with staircases up and down, in addition to elevators. I... More

Denver did it right. Whoever is responsible for creating the 16th Street Mall deserves a special gold sticker. Other cities could learn a lot from the way Denver has incorporated tourism/free transit/excellent shopping options into the heart of the city. There is an eclectic feel here that no other city in America offers. DIA is a stepping stone for getting... More

The 16th Street Mall is quite long but is served by fuel efficient buses that are frequent along the mall and, best of all, are free of charge. There are many pubs, resturants, and shops along the way. It is a pedestrian mall with the aforementioned busses only vehicles permitted. You can visit many of Denver's interesting places just on...

Not quite what I expected... First of all, there were a lot more restaurants and a lot fewer stores than I expected to see on the "mall". The free bus was a great way to get up and down the downtown area which was great. However, if you're traveling with small children be prepared for some of the colorful characters... More

The 16th Street Mall was a great place to just get out and walk the streets. Great shops and stores as well as street vendors with all kinds of food and product. There are street musicians, good restaurants and a great place if you like to people watch!

16th Street Mall was so much fun we didn't want to leave, they had a movie theater, shopping galore, and some fun restaurant selections, all in all we had a great time and will return for many years to come.

We are Denver fans and this is one of the reasons why. Seeing all of the complaints makes me laugh; visit a place like NYC or Vegas and you will see the same. It is inevitable to avoid panhandlers in a big city. That aside, this is a wonderful outdoor mall with lots to do. There are many big stores,... More

The 16th Street Mall has much to see and do. During my nearly 2 week stay, I visited the Mall each day not only to walk and exercise, but also to view the many activities taking place from street corner musicians to free concerts to free movies. There are a variety of very good restaurants located on virtually every block... More
