This neighborhood is a fun place to walk around. Lots of places to eat and drink. There are bars to hang out. Grab a coffee and talk a walk.

Okay people, heres the skinny on LoDo. I grew up in Colorado and LoDo used to be the industrial/warehouse section of Denver. Back in the day unless you worked or delivered into those area's, you didnt travel that way, you stayed by the Tivoli or 16th street mall. The area is nice and there are great places to eat, bars,...

We loved every part of LoDo. We could walk just about everywhere. There's a ton of food options, and great shopping. You have to visit if you're in the Denver area.

But plagued by poor signage, poor signage to get from Light Rail to Union Station, poor information as to the attractions in the immediate area, horrible parking as in non-available if you drive. Great historical features, but something needs to be done to make the area friendlier.

Photograph is totally NOT LoDo. LoDo has become well known as a destination in the USA and around the world because of it's unique character and entertainment. Correct your photo please.

Several great restaurants, bars and shopping in LoDo. The area is also great to people watch if the weather outside is not too cold.

If you can stay in LoDo when you come to visit I would. So many restaurants and shopping, Can pretty much walk anywhere. Feel safe night and day.
