About Downtown Denver & LoDo (Lower Downtown)

Denver is an energetic city that offers both city adventure and many outdoor recreational activities. With numerous distinctive neighborhoods, including LoDo, Denver offers something for everyone. Although Denver has grown up beyond its 'cow town' reputation with a growing economic community, attracting high finance, technology and environmental companies, it still always knows its roots. Every January the Stock Show begins just like the old days.....with cows herded through the center of town. Whether it's high tea at the Brown Palace, a play at the Denver Center for Performing Arts, a concert at the Pepsi Center, or a day at Coors Field to watch the Rockies, you'll find plenty to do.

LoDo consists of 25 square blocks north of Larimer Street between 14th and 22nd streets. There are 125 designated historic buildings in the area, making it one of the largest concentrations of Victorian and turn-of-the-century architecture in the nation. Since the opening of Coors Field in 1995, the neighborhood has undergone a transformation. Many of the 12,000 new housing units in downtown Denver are located in this area, offered in a mixture of eclectic new buildings and restored warehouse loft projects.

There are 90 brewpubs, sports bars, restaurants and coffee houses in the neighborhood, most of them located in old buildings with exposed brick walls. Several restaurants have rooftop cafes offering a great place to view a Rocky Mountain sunset. Old favorites of the neighborhood include the Wynkoop Brewing Company, the first brewpub in Colorado , and El Chapultepec, ranked by Esquire Magazine as one of the best bars and jazz clubs in the nation. New restaurants, such as Vesta dipping grille, Tamayo, and Rioja have received national recognition. Shopping in the area includes a selection of art galleries, the famous Tattered Cover Bookstore and Rockmount Ranch Wear, the company that invented the snap button Western shirt that is currently a favorite of rock stars.

Close by is Cherry Creek with a great hiking and biking path, the lite rail, and Union Station with the "ski train" to Winter Park. A 'dog friendly' city, you'll find dog parks, and even restaurants that are "pet friendly".

You'll never run out of things to do in this vibrant, young energetic city!
