A mile-long pedestrian promenade chock-block with souvenir shops, bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels and modern skyscrapers.
You won't have a difficult time whiling away a few hours down this stretch of street. The mall strip was designed by architect I.M. Pei who cleverly chose the color scheme of red, white and gray granite to repeat in a pattern throughout the shopping center. An aerial view of the mall reveals a shape that resembles a diamondback rattlesnake.
In addition to 42 outdoor cafés, there is the shopping complex DenverPavilions at the south end of the mall and on the north end, three bridges that connect to more of Denver's hot spots and attractions.
If you visit at night, let a horse-drawn carriage take you where you want to go in the mall.
