We had an extra day in Denver while there for a family wedding and decided to spend "a couple of hours" at the 16th Street Mall. We were totally wowed and spent many hours happily wandering along this amazing, shady, one-mile stretch of shops, restaurants, art displays and so much more. First of all, we were happily surprised that this... More

never been to Denver this was my first time there, but it is dirty in a lot of places, smells like pee, and attracts homeless asking you for money. People watching is great here, there are some good restaurants and if you are staying downtown its easy to walk down there for food or drinks just not to late because... More

The shopping here isn't very good but its fun to walk around. We ate dinner one night outside at a Brewery, that was really nice!

We recently stayed near the 16th Street Mall, while at Comic Con! It was a great little experience to walk up and down the shopping area and my husband and I took a romantic ride in a horse drawn carriage! It was fun and the carriage driver was very helpful with his recommendations for dinner!

Visited here for the second time and it was a disgrace compared to my first visit. There were homeless people everywhere and the area just looked so much more rundown from what I remembered it being a year and a half ago. The shops are great and there is a lot to do here, but the city needs to work... More

We were so excited to visit the 16th street mall only to find lots of homeless people hanging out. Lots of great restaurants, but overshadowed by the uneasy feeling of not being safe. Police are everywhere and yes, there is a free shuttle up and down the street. But, we will not visit downtown Denver again. The city should do... More

I have lived here my whole life and still do not understand the 16th St. Mall. There is a free mall ride, and it should be the hub-bub of Denver, but it is dirty in a lot of places, smells like pee, and attracts strange people. People watching is great here, however, you will be approached a lot for money... More

First and foremost- the downtown area smells really bad. Every twenty feet or less, there are large concrete planters full of flowers- which the homeless use as restrooms since the place is like europe, devoid of public restrooms. The vibe is pretty chill, but man, the smells just keep coming back over and over again. There are also more Starbucks... More

16th Street Mall is the main commercial artery of LoDo. From random shops to established name brands, 16th Street has it. Cheesecake Factory? Check. The Westin Hotel? Check. Walgreens? Check and check. If it's your first time in Denver, it's worth walking through, people watch, sit on a bench or whatnot. It's nice that the street is closed to cars.... More

My husband and I recently stayed downtown for vacation right off of the 16th street mall and loved the area!!! So many fun stores, restaurants and bars! We loved the free shuttle rides!! It is a VERY busy place so if you don't like big crowds and loud city life this would probably not be the place for you to... More
