Downtown boasts two distinct regions: the contemporary, window-paneled skyscrapers to the east, and the city's beloved historic district, Lower Downtown (LoDo), to the west.
Nestled between Coors Field and the Pepsi Center, LoDo is Denver's prime destination for after-parties following Avalanche, Nuggets or Rockies games, or for just hanging out any night of the week. There is always an opportunity to have fun—and usually stay out too late—at one of the area's 90 bars and pubs. LoDo's red-brick buildings, many of which were constructed after an 1863 fire, are preserved in the historic state that characterizes the neighborhood. In the 1920s, LoDo was known for the Market Street red light district, and in the 1970s as a warehouse center. Now, LoDo is reputed as the ideal hub for urban living in the region.
LoDo is also home to the bustling Larimer Square, which is justifiably called, "the grandest thoroughfare between Chicago and San Francisco" and favorably compared with New York's Broadway for "enterprise, stability, and rush." The founder of Urban Neighborhoods Real Estate, Dana Crawford, is the mastermind behind preserving the now beautiful square back in the 1960′s.
The landscaped paths along the South Platte and Cherry Creek provide walkers, joggers, and cyclists with safe, picturesque access to one of the most extensive urban trail systems in the nation. Confluence Park, site of Denver's first settlements, is rife with kayakers from dawn till dusk while skate boarders cavort in the sculpted bowls of the nearby Denver Skate Park. On summer evenings, eager locals gather on the grassy knoll above the river for free concerts and movies.
At 16th Street, where Commons Park rolls along the banks of the Platte, three pedestrian bridges link LoDo to Platte Street, Denver's "Left Bank" and Highland, one of Downtown's newest trendy neighborhoods. The architecturally intriguing bridges include the landmark cable-stayed Millennium Bridge and a spectacular new span across I-25.
