I like going downtown to the 16th Street Mall. It is a vibrant part of Denver. It is pedestrian friendly, but also features free buses that stop on every block. There is a variety of stores, restaurants, bars, street vendors, and hotels. The one bad thing is all of the panhandlers. Otherwise, downtown is a lot of fun.

Denver has done an excellent job of creating and maintaining the 16th Street Mall. The free bus service makes it easy to walk as far as you would like and then just grab the bus to return to your starting point. From entertainment on the street to great restaurants and entertainment venues, there is plenty to do!

The 16th Street Mall is a great place to be to shop, dine and people watch. The street is lined with many restaurants, department stores, souvenier shops and places to sit and watch the diverse Denver community go about their day. The summer is the best time to be there as many restaurants have outdoor seating and you can eat... More

So much to do! Restaurants, shopping, nightlife. There is a shuttle that goes up and down the street if you're in a hurry. But otherwise, walk it. It's gorgeous and great exercise One thing it appears there's an increasing number of transient youth milling about looking for people to give them money for weed. Especially in the early evening. Kind... More

Way better places to explore in Denver than 16th street - restaurants are average and the street is dirty - don't bother - Denver is better than this

In my humble opinion, its pretty much the worst part of LODO and the free shuttle is really only useful for getting from Union Station (great) to points of interest further south like Denver's great art musuem. The stores on the Mall are all average to mediocre chain options as are the dining options. There are far better dining options... More

Just a few blocks walk on the 16th Street Mall assure you'll see it all. Most of the shops are chain stores. Some are local stores, but not quaint or charming. The 16th Street Mall ride is nice-and air conditioned when its hot outside.

When I was told to go downtown to 16th St. mall I thought it would be great, but it's just a street with a ton of stores. It's not bad, they have everything you need and there's a bunch of restaurants all along the way. There's also a free bus that goes up and down the street which is very... More

The 16th Street Mall is pretty amazing. It is several blocks of shops and restaurants and is meant for walking. If you can't find something to buy or some awesome place to eat than I feel for you. The cops are always present, which is good, because Denver is battling (and winning) a battle with homeless people. The hip people... More
