“not worth a special trip”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

There are so many wonderful places for people to visit when they come to Denver. I hate to see tourists steered towards the Mall as if it's some great destination. I worry that's what they'll remember about our beautiful town. Go everywhere else on the list and don't bother with the Mall. Our city has so much to offer!

“Everything in one stretch of road”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

As we stayed in a hotel downtown, 16th street mall has everything one can imagine. From theatres , restaurants, bowling alley , retail shops , coffee shops and bistros. It was a leisurely walk or if you want a free bus ride the whole stretch . And by accident found a marijuana dispensary just right beside a 7eleven. Of course we needed to check it out . It was educating to me

“Take the bus”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Take the free bus that travels up and down 16th street. It's the best way to see what's there. Interesting outdoor dining; Horse drawn carriage rides; great place to people watch. Don't miss the restaurants & shops on the streets intersecting 16th.

“Great area of Denver”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Stayed at the Sheraton on the mall and had a great time. The weather in April was amazing and the mall is a great outdoor area to walk around and shop, eat, or people watch.

We felt safe the entire time and the free public transportation made it cheap to get around.

“The Denizens of Denver at the Mall !”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

In ways this is the bohemian heart of Denver ! You can start from the west & stroll down to the east and return (or reverse). If the walk is too much you can hop on/off at many stops on the free shuttle bus. Along the way you can deviate down side streets to other attractions & return to the Mall ! On the way you can visit shops of all persuasions , bars , restaurants and get a feel for the different denizens of Denver ! You get all types , the loud Jesus freaks , the drunks & bums, the busy bargain hunter(my wife) and workers out & about. Nothing threatening as there is always a strong police presence but not too sure if I'd take the family there at night ? Depending where you park your car (or come by bus) you can spend a lazy couple of hours , stroll , grab a bite to eat and a beer or two ! Worth a look see in Denver.
