Shopping in Denver

Denver has a plethora of shopping opportunities. There are several fine indoor and outdoor malls, as well as many streets with impressive boutiques and markets. The majority of these shopping areas are in close proximity to downtown Denver.

Sports fanatics should head to LoDo, where they’ll find Coors Field as well as a number of sports bars and the well-known Wynkoop Brewing Company. LoDo is also a haven for book lovers. Tattered Cover Bookstore, one of the largest independent bookstore in America, is located at the end of 16th Street Mall. If you’re willing to head a bit outside of Downtown, Cherry Creek is the best place to shop for clothing and jewellery.
