A Great Place To Spend Time – The Pavilion's are great! There are many restaurants, entertainment, and bars all compacted in a cute, clean, and friendly environment. Their recent facelife makes the place even more attractive.
$75 parking tickets, I won't shop downtown Denver ever again – I got a $75 parking ticket because I stopped in a little store at 16th and Welton, to buy a small gift for my wife.
The $2 I put in the meter had run out minutes before i got back, so I had a $75 parking ticket.
So guess what? I won't ever do that again! From now on, I will shop somewhere else.
The city of Denver can put those stores right out of business and then who are they going to fine for parking?
Never again will they shaft me.
Not worth a $75 ticket. And Cherry Creek Mall has free parking and is all indoors. I'm going back to malls.
Great walking area – This is a great Downtown. Denver should be proud, they did just about everything right.
The only issue is the bums panhadling for money. I travel to Denver on business on a regular basis and love the area, but I get harased for spare change almost every time.
Denver's first foray into tourism-fueled commerce is still the city's busiest pedestrian mall. – In Short
After the oil bust of the late '70s turned downtown into a ghost town, Denver needed a way to attract people back to the city. The 16th Street Mall was the first step in that massive revitalization effort--and one that paid mighty dividends. With several blocks of hotels, restaurants and shops, the mall is an urban walkway that cuts a swath through Denver's bustling metropolis. People from every walk of life frequent the mall.
Great People-Watching, Cool Stores – One of my earliest memories is being taken downtown by my mom and grandma for the grand opening of 16th Street Mall in 1982. I loved it then when I was 2, and I love it even more now! I spent many happy hours strolling up and down 16th Street when I was in college over at CU-Denver. To this day, even though I now live in the Tech Center, I still try to make it a point to go down there at least once a month and just walk around, checking stuff out. It's just urban enough to be cool, yet has no pretentious air about it, like that which you'd find in Cherry Creek North or even Pearl Street Mall, to some extent. It's fun for everyone!
16th Str Mall and Skyline Park – Free people watching, concerts, great shopping, eating and pleanty to drink - this place can not be beat.
