By all accounts word was this area of downtown Denver would be worth visiting. The "mall" is outside so if the weather is bad, good luck. The stores are standard with a few one-offs that are always the best places to visit.

My husband and I only stop for a few hours(we took at least an hour to eat during that time). If you like shopping(basically for anything) this is the right outdoor mall of many many shops for you. For an outdoor mall it was much cleaner than I expected and on the day we visited we had very few people... More

16th Street Mall is a great concept and pretty cool overall. Free bus/trams ply brick laid roadways for a mile up and down the center of downtown. Lots of shops and small eating establishments, but rather disappointing in that regard until one gets down to about California Street. The "Mall" concept works, but the many cross streets with traffic (a... More

So there seem to be a lot of bad reviews or good reviews, the atmosphere can depend on the time of year and what events are going on in Denver. There do seem to be more homless people, there being moved on from other areas. The shopping is not great and there are a lot of national chain restraunts. It... More

Sooooo...... I wanted to see downtown Denver and do a little gift shopping and eating (of course). I was advised to go to 16th street for shopping. Not a good recommendation. ALL the tourist go there! It's worst than midtown NYC during rush hour and the stores are no great at all. And most have a sewer smell to them.... More

Fun place to stroll, shop and eat. Quite a few panhandlers, but still a nice area to visit. Fun entertainment and an excellent Italian restaurant at one end.

Forbes rated Denver as the 16th most educated city in the United States. With that accolade, one would think this city is clean, well-maintained, roads are well-built and so on. Well, my experience tells me otherwise. For tourists, a visit to a city center helps form an impression of the place. Denver is the major city (and capitol) of Colorado,... More

Spent a nice day walking through downtown Denver. It is a pleasant walk and people are friendly. There are quite a few people panhandling. Store prices are a little high. The atmosphere is great. Plenty of places to eat or have something to drink. Great place for the entire family.

Spent a pleasant couple of hours walking up and down this street. It has flowers all the way along and if you get tired or have mobility problems you can catch the shuttle bus for free.

This street has a lot of entertainment and fun art work. However the stores are not special, but a good area to buy souvenirs.
