16th Street Mall
The mall is a mile-long, tree-lined promenade stretching through the heart of downtown. Bustling with street vendors, souvenir shops, clothing and jewelry stores, and a plethora of bars and restaurants, this energetic strip offers plenty of variety. The Denver Pavilions , at the entrance of the mall, is a new open air-shopping plaza filled with trendy chains, including the Denver edition of the Hard Rock Cafe . The D & F Tower , a 325-foot (100-meter) replica of the Campanile (bell tower) in Venice, graces the center of the mall. The Tabor Center adds to the shopping enthusiasm. Free shuttles provide transportation up and down the mall, allowing for convenient cross-town sightseeing.
We stayed at the Marriott on 16th Street and enjoyed walking down the mall in the evenings. We took in a couple of movies at the theatre a couple of blocks from the hotel. There are countless numbers of places to eat and listen to live music. It wasn't really what I was expecting because of the variety of stores on the mall....like Walgreens....actually a good thing for those things that you forgot to pack. I just expected more specialty shops rather than chains. I felt safe walking around for the most part, but did encounter a few people asking for money. I don't remember ever seeing any police officers on the street, but they may have been there. All in all, a very interesting place to walk around and explore. The first night it rained, so my husband and I walked around under an umbrella....kind of nice.
Spent four days in downtown near 16th street at the Westin Tabor, which is way way overpriced, the place is kind of dumpy for such an expensive hotel. Anyways the 16th street area was kind of cool because it was easy to walk around but and this is a big but (which there were alot in Denver) there were a ton of homeless and vagrants sitting on the benches and begging for money the streets were kinda dirty and there were just alot of freaks. It is something to see I guess but I will never go back. The people in denver are just weird. I have been to alot of big cities like NYC, Boston, LA, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Tampa Bay, Seatle, San Diego and I think Denver is the worst one I have been to. And like one of the other posters had stated that it smells I agree there was a weird smell. Go visit other cities before this one. Denver is the dumps.
I think Denver is one of the most amazing city's I have ever been through! The 16th Street Mall atmosphere compared to other city' walks, is uncomparable. Denver has a unique and fun feel! Besides the shopping it has a great range of lounges that is wonderful for a nice day! It's vibrant atmosphere is what got me the most, along with the cleaniest streets I have seen in a city!!!! Overall, I visit Denver at least once a year and find new and exciting things to due in the down town area!!! Visit Lo Do area absolutly amazing nightlife!!!!
It was easy to find and park on the street. Trees along the street were nice. However, there was nothing distinguishing about the shopping and restaurants, which are the same as you can find in any mall most anywhere. We were there about 7:00 p.m. and most retail stores were closed. There is a free mall shuttle, but it was crowded, not air conditioned and ran right down the center of the pedestrian zone. There were many benches to sit on, but were mostly occupied those who appeared to be vagrants and homeless. Second hand smoke on the streets was annoying. I would not go back nor recommend anyone to visit.
Love downtown. It's a great place to walk around or hang out on a nice sunny day. If visiting Elitches, Coors Field or any other denver attraction, great place to go and get some cheap food. Go at night and its a romantic wonderland. All lit up with Clydesdales pulling carriages up and down the street...very nice.
Under construction and there is not really anything there. A few stores (golf, one clothing, florist and a tobacco store. The food court was okay. They do have the Cheesecake Factory which was the only bonus.
The Mall is just a great place to shop. Visited Colo and Denver just about every yr from 10 years back. Will always return. The shops are great and the mall buses are a plus. Most cities have their downers, and of course, Denver is no exception, but as an exciting shopping area, we like it. Sure, some shops have closed and the so-called "homeless" frequent some of the areas, but what city does not have that problem? Recommended!!!!!!
There were a few interesting shops but nothing unique. If you are going to just walk around, it isn't worth it. The whole street smells like urine and is inhabitted by gutterpunks and the like. It reminds me of downtown san jose, a place with potential but not there yet. Lots of the stores had moved out already and the place seemed a bit run down. There was a huge crowd outside the rock bottom brewery and that looked like what I thought this place would be but that was only one place on this mile long stretch of property. Its just very dirty down there with not much to see. Think market street SF at 10pm or so.. Not my idea of a good time.
