If you want to go shopping or need somewhere to eat this could be the place for you. We come here during the day and wandered up and down 16th Street. Maybe in the evening it would have more atmosphere but I can't say it was anything special.

I am proud to be a Denver native. As a kid, I felt like 16th Street Mall was a place for families to window shop and enjoy the downtown life. With the recent legalization of marijuana in Denver, I would not want to take a family here. With so many stoned people on the 16th Street Mall, the area has... More

Have been visiting Denver every year for the past 7 yrs. The bum/homeless population along 16th Street seems to get worst each year. This yr (4th July weekend) walked down 16th street and smelled like piss, more bums/homeless. Will not be eating on 16th street...recommend going to Larimer Street and staying at a hotel along 14th street. Aslo to add... More

We always love visiting downtown Denver, especially the 16th Street Mall. Having lived in the Denver area, we like to return to see what is new, or to visit some of the wonderful places there! Evenings and weekends are great for people-watching, and around the holiday season it is great to "window shop!" The only challenges are traffic entering the... More

Rode the #32 bus to this shopping venue. Took the free shuttle but on this HOT summer afternoon the non-air conditioned, jam-packed shuttle wasn't worth it! Construction caused sidewalks near Union Station to be closed. There were loads of restaurants and stores to visit but Boulder's Pearl St. Mall has a MUCH better mix of local and chain choices.

True, some cities just did not get the mall thing right. Denver has had the benefit of some excellent planners, and hasn't been shy about addressing issues as they came up.

Eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. It was fun to just catch the free bus and randomly get off to see what was nearby. There are plenty of festivals right around there too, so the activities available changed several times in the 5 days I was there.

The city has really tried with the 16th st mall. There is a free and efficient mall ride, nice shops, some art installations. It is centrally located and surround by hotels and shops with many restaurant and bar choices. BUT, and as a woman travelling on business, the beggars/ and homeless are numerous and many can be aggressive and just... More

If you're a visitor to the Denver area, you've got to go to Downtown Denver and visit the 16th street mall. My favorite restaurant is called Crepes & Crepes. Lots to do... lots to see...It's a don't miss if you come here!

What's to say? It was probably a good idea back in the whenever they decided to create the 16th Street Mall. But, frankly, all it's good for is the free bus service from uptown to LoDo. Just a string of totally uninteresting stores, bars and restaurants. Go to LoDo.
