Where you'll be

The 16th Street Mall is an architectural gem in Denver. Designed as a pedestrian walkway by IM Pei in 1982, the street is lined with buildings by some of Denver's best-known architects. Often overlooked as simply a shopping destination, exploring the street with our guides is the best way to discover the history and architecture of Denver's original main street.
