If you have some time to kill and you want to see some of the same old stores that are everywhere, go here. The free bus is great. Gets you around quickly and you can see a lot of stores. Go down Lrimar Street to find some neat unique shops and eateries. Don't forget the Cheescake Factory for dessert.

The 16th street mall has been around forever in Denver. It's a great place to spend the day looking in shops and having a great lunch or dinner. There are so many places to go. The people watching is fun, too. Just take the day and have a ball!!!! Yes there are homeless people around and that was cleared out... More

It's a nice idea and there are a lot of restaurants and shops. And it's not a bad walk. But there are a real lot of homeless people asking for money. Some are more pushy than others. And there is a general smell of urine in a lot of places. Otherwise it's ok.

This shopping is so eclectic. I loved it. But I admit I have never seen so many homeless people and pan-handling so concentrated in one area. That was my turn-off. Loved the wonderful collection of old and young people and all we're welcoming and inviting to Denver!

The 16th Street Mall just keeps getting better. Downtown Denver is booming and the surface parking lots along the mall have all but disappeared replaced by stores, and I'm not talking t-shirt shops. Now there are more restaurants and brew pubs. The damaged stones are being repaired and the busses seem to be quieter.

This has everything you will think of in a mall. The Cheesecake Factory is a wonderful place to have supper with family or friends. There is a lot of shopping to choose from. Many hotels, bars, and restaurants very close by. Also different times of the year they have fun events hosted here. There is a parking fee, usually meters... More

What better place in Denver to meet Denverites but the famous 16th Street Mall. During the day, its bustling with business, restaurants, shops, street performers, art, and a perfect place for people watching as there are many areas to sit, including street benches and sidewalk restaurants. At night you will find off Broadway shows, bar hoppers, an exciting night life,... More

We enjoyed eating ice cream and walking down the strip of stores and then taking a free bus ride back to our starting point. I wish there had been more vendors (food and souvenirs) but we were there in February so maybe that's something they do when the weather is nicer. There are restaurants to stop at along the way...but... More
