“Makes a Destination of the Downtown!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

What a clever way to drive interest to an otherwise "typical" downtown. I happened to be in Denver on business and wanted to get out of the hotel for lunch.
I walked about a 5 block stretch and saw lots of people gathering to watch street musicians and magicians along the 16th street median.
A number of restaurants have open windows to the street, making it all seem connected and interactive. I also noticed uniformed security guards casually making their way through the crowds as well, lending a safe, family feel to it as well.
I wish Milwaukee would do the same thing!
Way to go Denver.

“Lots of Shopping Places”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

If you're looking for a place to go shopping in Denver, look no further. This place is fun to explore and has a ton of big name, as well as local, stores and shops. My friend and I stopped at H&M and then browsed a chocolate shop where you can buy treats for your pets back home. There were also plenty of restaurants to eat at. Be warned that it may look like you're walking on a sidewalk, but the bus also drives on it! Parking might be pricey AND you may have to walk quite a few blocks. I would recommend spending an afternoon here, but plan before going!

“Lots to see and do.....get your hotel near this area.....”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We stayed at the Homewood`s Suites Hotel, could walk to the mall and all it`s amenities...any that were further, you hop on the free daily shuttle. Lots of shops, restaurants and things to see and do. Lots of late night bars and fun places to gather. Just walking on the street, you see tons. Great shops for all your souvenirs, or higher end shops for your own personal shopping.

“Nice but nothing overwhelming.”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This is a commercial strip about a mile long. Near hotels and the convention center, this strip has an array of stores and trendy restaurants. A good way to spend a couple of hours at best.

“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!
