Denver has emerged as a foodie city. There are so many great restaurants in LoDo and neighboring RiNo that you won't go hungry.

We walked around the LoDo with a detailed explenation from a local wonderfull guied/friend which made the tour interesting and understandble. If you do it do it our way. With a guide.

Fun to walk around, but I'd avoid the 16th St. mall area. The renovated buildings with old-time signs painted on the sides are delightful.

It's a nice walk in LoDo shops, restaurants and bars. There are a number of old buildings with some historical architecture if you look closely. There's a closed section of street where only the mall bus runs. The bus is free so really convenient when...More

The heartbeat & pulse of the city. So many different things to see & do. And it's incredibly CLEAN for being such a touristy area.

Many sights and shops are worth the trip into town. Nestled along the South Platte River, biking and walking are my favorite way to get around. LoDo is very tricky traffic wise with one-way streets and heavy traffic.

Great area for travelers to shop, browse and people watch. The free mall bus can get crowded but is a lifesaver for getting from one end of the mall to the other or from union station to nearby hotels.
