The 16th Street Mall is a mostly pedestrian-only zone in downtown Denver. The Mall is lined with shopping, restaurants, and usually a handful of food trucks. It’s a great place for an afternoon stroll — or you can catch the free shuttle that runs repeatedly from the top of the street near Civic Center Park all the way to Union Station. It stops at every intersection. https://www.denver.org/things-to-do/denver-attractions/16th-street-mall/
