This is a commercial strip about a mile long. Near hotels and the convention center, this strip has an array of stores and trendy restaurants. A good way to spend a couple of hours at best.

There are so many wonderful places for people to visit when they come to Denver. I hate to see tourists steered towards the Mall as if it's some great destination. I worry that's what they'll remember about our beautiful town. Go everywhere else on the list and don't bother with the Mall. Our city has so much to offer!

As we stayed in a hotel downtown, 16th street mall has everything one can imagine. From theatres , restaurants, bowling alley , retail shops , coffee shops and bistros. It was a leisurely walk or if you want a free bus ride the whole stretch . And by accident found a marijuana dispensary just right beside a 7eleven. Of course... More

Take the free bus that travels up and down 16th street. It's the best way to see what's there. Interesting outdoor dining; Horse drawn carriage rides; great place to people watch. Don't miss the restaurants & shops on the streets intersecting 16th.

Stayed at the Sheraton on the mall and had a great time. The weather in April was amazing and the mall is a great outdoor area to walk around and shop, eat, or people watch. We felt safe the entire time and the free public transportation made it cheap to get around.

In ways this is the bohemian heart of Denver ! You can start from the west & stroll down to the east and return (or reverse). If the walk is too much you can hop on/off at many stops on the free shuttle bus. Along the way you can deviate down side streets to other attractions & return to the... More

The free buses really help you navigate the area and get around quickly. A lot of the stores start closing around 7-8pm on weekdays. I wouldn't seek this out unless you are looking to waste time or spend a day outside shopping.

I am down there a lot as I play at an improv theatre The Bovine Metropolis Theatre on Champa between 16th. and 15th. There is a lot of security, they keep the walkways free of snow, great restaurants and an interesting fun part of Denver. A must see. Walk the full length. There is also a free hop on/off bus...

There are lots of shops and restaurants along the mall. During the day it's very nice and I've never felt unsafe. At night I have felt uneasy. If you are with a group you will be fine but I wouldn't go on the mall alone at night. There are homeless people but for the most part they keep to themselves.
