“Great place to hang out”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I'm not sure why this area is called a mall. Maybe because it's rated as a pedestrian mall?? Nevertheless. It's a mile long area of shops, shows, and restaurants. It's a great place for people watching. You can ride a bus, walk, take a ride in a horse drawn carriage, a trolley, or just sit on a bench and watch the people go by. There is always action. Musicians, people playing checkers, and lots more. Don't miss this area when you visit Denver.

“This place has a lot of potential”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Don't come here expecting a super cool pedestrian area. It's pedestrian-friendly, but not super cool. Unlike Boulder's Pearl Street Mall, this place actually looks like the kind of mall we are more familiar with in the US. Bland stores commonly found in shopping malls everywhere--nothing really special. It also smells like pee.

“Not much choice”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The area is beautiful, but if you plan to do some shopping better look elsewhere. Besides TJ Maxx, the Dressbarn, Rosses, H&M, Forever 21, Victoria Secret, Famous Shoes there was not much more! Very disappointing.

“The Heart of Downtown Denver..”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

The pulse of the city is not found on the 16th St Mall. The true gems in Denver are found in Washington Park, Capital Hill and the Highlands (among other places). 16 St Mall lacks what makes each of these other neighborhoods great -- charm, unique character and energy. Instead, 16 St Mall is filled (at least in the non-vacant storefronts) with chain fast-food, major drug stores and a haphazard arrangement of shops. Some may say that I am being overly critical, and maybe I am, but only because 16 St Mall has so much potential that it currently fails to capitalize on. It is still worth exploring, but to feel/see/taste Denver, go somewhere else.

“Stimulating and Educational”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

A tour bus with three double door opening for the tours and frequent accessibility. It was fun to travel up and down the entire tour route, choose my sight what I wanted to visit, then get off at the second trip, and reboard to return to orgininal place of "tour's beginning."
