A really cool area with lots to do, eat, see, dine, drink, people watch. Loved this area and went back a couple nights. Near Coors field.

I have never seen a cleaner and more vibrant downtown area... The 16th Street Trolley is a joy and a great convenience... Must see Union Station and Coors Field

We remember the first time we visited Denver. We arrived on Amtrak at old, dusty, rundown Union Station. We walked to nearby Coors Field, past blocks of empty buildings and old warehouses that we later learned was called LoDo. Well, imagine our pleasant surprise when we arrive (by car, this time) on our most recent visit to the Mile High... More

Lots of good restaurants and a few cute shops to check out. Area is clean and new places are being built. Yes, lots of homeless folk, but they tend to mind their own business,

It was a gamble to turn downtown into a place that would draw people to downtown to be near Coor's Field or near games when the Broncos. They did it and the final draw has been the newly renovated Union Station which helps you with local / long transportation and has shops and food venues worthy of your time and... More

Walking tour, Historic LoDo, led by MSU history professor, Kevin Rucker, not only points out architectural gems, but regales walkers with tales of famous & infamous characters. He recounts paranormal encounters with ghosts of some of the more illustrious historical figures. This is a must do. I did another walking tour of Larimer St. with another leader who was good,...

LoDo still has the older merchants: Rockmount RanchWear, Oxford hotel, Eelectible Egg, Tattered book cover. Wonderful places away from the hustle on 16th St. Mall. Train station is great for food, deli and ice cream. Several nice restaurants and the Crawford hotel.

Lodo is a district roughly between the Pepsi Center, Union Station and Coors Field. This is a walkers environment. Lots of restaurants, bars and boutiques. If you enjoy people watching, find a place to ditch the car and stroll. Lodo is connected with the downtown office area and government building by the 16th street mall, which is a pedestrian street... More
