Often called LoDo for Lower downtown, this section of the Downtown area also has a famous jazz club called El Chapultepec and a former warehouse district that now hosts brewpubs and shopping malls.

Step 2 Cheer the Colorado Rockies

Interact with thousands of other locals at Coors Field while watching the Colorado Rockies play ball at the landmark stadium.

The historic downtown neighborhood houses many landmark stores such as Cry Baby Ranch, the Goorin Brothers Hat Company, and the 16th Street Mall, which is a famous walkway lined with outside cafes.

There is no greater destination than the ever popular Denver Zoo, located in City Park. The zoo is home to over 4,000 animals, including a five month old Grevy zebra, three new maned wolf-pups, several lions, a tiger, and giraffes. There are many benches to sit and soak in the scenery also while you people watch.
