It is a pretty convenient mall in downtown Denver. An important note about downtown Denver - I've traveled all over the world and I have never seen so many homeless people. The lack of social services is alarming. I counted about ten people begging on the block. They tend to be a little aggressive and intimidating. I don't mind people who need money but to be approached all the time was overwhelming.

The 16th Street Mall is one of the best places for people watching. walking, catching a quick bite or shopping. There is always something going on and different every time. Any day of the year. There are benches to relax on and a free bus.
There are many interesting restaurants and shops.

This is a great place and a must see if you ever go to Denver.
Lots of great eateries, coffee shops, and the 'souvenir' shops have some really great stuff in them, not the usual tacky/junky stuff. They are not over priced either.
There is a FREE tram/bus that makes lots of stops along the way that you can hop on and off any time you see something you want to check out and the whole road is closed to regular traffic.
There are several street musicians along the as well.
A perfect way to spend the afternoon.
Have been there every time I go to Denver and look forward to my next trip there again next year.

On my arrival to Denver, I got the chance to walk the length of the 16th Street Mall (which was few feet from the Oxford hotel where I was staying in). There are quite a few shops, bars and restaurants. Even though it was cold, a respectable number of people were strolling along the sidewalks (as groups, couples or solo). The restaurants and shops are not the best in Denver, but the bar scene is busy and there are quite a few. Midway through the Mall, you'll find the Denver Pavilions which doesn't have a large selection of shops, but has a decent movie theater and offers free parking for shoppers and moviegoers.
A free bus ride is available for everyone, but keep your wallets and belongings safe since sometimes homeless people would reside there (most likely as a shelter when it's cold). I mostly walked, especially when I felt like looking around the shops.
Parallel to the 16th Street Mall (on both sides) are additional shops, restaurants, hotels, and other attractions like the Denver center for performing arts.
All in all, it's a nice walk but nothing too fancy.

This is a nice downtown stroll about a mile long but has frequent free buses too. Easy access from Union Station light rail/bus stop-also several parking garages close to 16th St if you drive. Be sure and detour off the main street-lots of shops and restaurants a half-block away from 16th. Also a few urban malls on the west side with lots of shops. HUGE tap beer selection at the Yard House. Mostly eateries but some shops like H&M. Very nice German/European Christmas market across from the bell tower-unique gifts and lots of German food and drink specialties-baked goods, beer tent, smoked salmon-all authentic-the real deal.
