Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo)
A lively district of restaurants, shops, and nightlife, Lower Downtown Denver (or LoDo) is a top destination for Denver culture. In addition to its vibrant scene, though, LoDo is also home to some of the city’s best-preserved historic architecture and more Victorian–era buildings than anywhere else in the United States.

The Basics
Once infamous for its saloons and brothels, the 29-block LoDo neighborhood is now largely restored and renovated but retains historic charm. Wander past landmarks like the 130-year-old Union Station, the historic Daniels & Fisher (D&F) Tower, and the Oxford Hotel en route to hip bookstores, local hangouts, and breweries. Explore the area’s boutiques and galleries on a Denver walking tour to get a sense of the area’s history and revitalization from a tour guide, or opt for a culinary or craft beer tour for a specialty sightseeing experience.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Plan to walk or bike around, as traffic can be intense.
  • If going out for dinner, make a reservation to avoid long waits in this popular neighborhood.
  • Kid-friendly restaurants and activities make this neighborhood good for family outings.

How to Get There
LoDo is located in northwest Downtown Denver, surrounded by Cherry Creek and the South Platte River. Travelers can drive, park, and walk around, or take advantage of the bike-friendly streets. When it comes to public transit, the Union Station transit center is at the heart of the neighborhood with buses and Light Rail stops. 

When to Get There
LoDo is open and vibrant year-round, though visitors might enjoy warm summer weather over snowy Colorado winters. Nightlife is especially popular here, making LoDo a good base for a night on the town.

Nearby Denver Attractions
Nearby landmarks include Coors Field, the Molly Brown House Museum, and Larimer Square. A historic Denver city tour might also introduce you to further Mile High City sights such as Capitol Hill and Wynkoop Street.
