I was staying in downtown Denver by the Convention Center and 16th Street Mall. I could walk a block to the bike path, walk/jog the 3 miles to the mall, shop, have lunch and then catch the 83L bus back to the 16th St Mall and free shuttle back to my apt. I did this frequently in order to cover all addictions: exercise, shopping, eating! Denver is an easy city to navigate.
If you like to walk you can pick up a map and walk to the Cherry Creek Mall from downtown using the neighborhood streets. Some of the lovely mansions are located on the way near the Denver Country Club and Cheesman Park. On a summer/spring day it is a perfect way to spend the morning and you can always catch the bus back at the Cherry Creek Mall.
