Things to Do in Downtown

View Map

Downtown Denver is known as both as the financial and entertainment hub of the city. It includes high-rise apartments and office buildings, along with many attractions for shopping, dining and more. A few notable downtown Denver destinations:

16th Street Mall: This outdoor pedestrian and transit mall is 1.25 miles through downtown, and has been a favorite local and tourist attraction since it was built in 1982. It features more than 300 stores and restaurants, including Denver Pavillions, which houses a movie theater and clothing stores.

Union Station: Initially built in 1881, Union Station began as a train depot in Denver. It has evolved greatly over the years. The updated Union Station now includes a great hall with trendy restaurants, coffee and ice cream shops, retail stores and a hotel. It is also still a transportation hub, with a 22-gate underground bus facility and an East Rail Line connecting downtown Denver with DIA expected to open in 2016.

Coors Field: Located at 20th and Blake St. in what is known as the “ballpark district,” this is where the Colorado Rockies play baseball. The stadium offers fans a large selection of food and drink, along with a Rocky Mountain backdrop. It was recently renovated to include a rooftop bar and event area.
