The area is undergoing a wonderful revival. Coors Field, Rockmount Western Store, Tattered Cover bookstore, Union Station... All wonderful examples that help make this the place to be. It makes for a wonderful urban experience. All around there is remodeling and renovation going on. Really neat development to see.

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.

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,...
