We spent one night in downtown Denver and decided to walk
around the mall area looking for a restaurant. We were surprised
by the number of homeless people and the police presence as well.
I don't think we would stay in this area again and probably
not feel safe venturing out at night.

We had 36 hours in town, and chose to go to the 16th Street Mall for a look at downtown. There is a free shuttle bus that runs up and down the street, making it easy to move around. We rode the bus up and back to see where we wanted to visit and planned our walk from there. Mall gives easy access to the Mint and other sights around downtown.
Clothes shopping, souvenirs, street vendors, artists, sculptures, coffee houses - Mall has it all for this type of urban adventure.

I guess that I did not research enough because this was a poor excuse of a pedestrian mall. A few chain stores - nothing much creative. Cannot say the area was sketchy but it was surely rough. Wasted our limited time in the area which could have been much better spent in Cherry Creek (especial Cherry Creek North). If you are looking for a great pedestrian mall go to Pearl St in Boulder - it's worth the trip

Its breath taking, exactly middle of the downtown but, beautiful, clean and nice. evening to night the whole street turn a musical place. I love this street so so much. They have free bus ride too.The only problem is there are some homless creepy people you should aware of, otherwise its an wonderful place.

As a family of 4, we were initially excited to be staying on this stretch of shops/restaurants. Many choices for restaurants, but shopping was mediocre. Most importantly, element of homeless/wandering individuals begging for money, foul language, and public smoking made this a very unpleasant and uncomfortable experience. We thought Denver would be nicer - this area made us feel unsafe and portrays a poor image of Denver. Hope area gets cleaned up.
