Did some walking

I walked the mall several times as it was near my hotel. It’s a nice walk with stores and places to eat. They keep it pretty clean. There are an a large amount of homeless if that bothers you.

It was okay

This is a fun little walkable area. The stores are pretty basic, Target, TJ Maxx, etc. Neat spot to check out, walk around, and people watch. There may have been some potentially sketchy behavior in darker corners/alleys but no one bothered us. Lots of restaurants and nightlife.
Side note- inside the 16th street mall is a Journey's shoe store. The young women who work there are wonderful. If I was only rating that store, it would be 5 stars. My shoes gave me a blister and I needed shoes in a hurry and these gals were wonderful!

Avoid!

Yuck! We stayed in Denver one night on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park. Really wish we hadn’t. The city is pretty gross. Lots of homeless folks and it just doesn’t feel safe. Wish we had stayed in Boulder instead. Won’t be back.

Jumping with energy!!! Great time!!!
Aug 2021
My family and I recently went on vacation to Denver and spent time at the 16th Street Mall. The place was full of energy with live music and lots of restaurants shops and people having a good time. My wife and I read the reviews and almost didn't go down there. I wouldn't pay attention to the recent bad reviews about the place being dangerous. There are a few homeless folks in the area, but no one bothered us at all. We felt perfectly safe and really enjoyed ourselves. We went Friday after a Rockies game and Saturday late afternoon/evening and the place was jumping with activity. We will go back down there again when in Denver.

Yuck. I would rate a 0 if I could. Homeless, dingy and gross. Only saw 1 good shop. Wish I spent my time doing something else.

Tourist trap

A lot of kitschy tourist shops, chain restaurants and belligerent young apparently homeless persons. There’s beautiful, authentic places in Colorado. This isn’t one of them.

Dangerous and dirty.
Jul 2021 • Business
Horrible. The stench of urine and actual crazy people, drug addicts, and homeless was unbelievable. Creepy guys and beggars at every corner. I even witnessed road rage where some lunatic stopped his car in the middle of the road, got something out of his trunk and started chasing a pedestrian. It was very creepy at night and there were crazy people everywhere. It’s a gorgeous place with a ton of great restaurants but the homeless and drug addict problem needs handled. I saw no police anywhere.

Overrated, many beggars, homeless and uncomfortable situations
Jul 2021
This was touted to be a "very nice area" where everything is "self contained" for what we thought would be a very nice experience. When we arrived to the area, we found homeless people wandering, people begging for "weed and beer," people approaching visitors and asking/saying inappropriate things and overall disappointing and sometimes concerning experiencing regarding our safety.

There was one man who was obviously under the influence of something, screaming at people passing by as he was "asking for a penny."

We could not understand why the police, the security and city employees were allowing panhandlers, the homeless, the beggars, etc. to interfere with what should be a safe sanctuary for visitors. What a shame. We will NOT return to this area... if you like this sort of things with your family on vacation, then go for it, but we will pass on this area and this city in general. What a shame. What a disappointment.

16th Street Mall
Jul 2021 • Family
We stayed near the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver and enjoyed walking through it. We visited before and after a Colorado Rockies baseball game and briefly the following morning. Even though we were there late at night it didn’t feel dangerous despite the large homeless population. There are plenty of stores and restaurants up and down the street and a free bus that drives through constantly.

Great day or night!

Enjoy a stroll down the 16th Street Mall, over a mile long. There are plenty of restaurants and shops to keep you busy. If you get tired, take the free shuttle bus back to your starting point. Very lively at night and close to many hotels.
