Historic Denver 16th Street Walking Tours

Jun 17, 2017 - Oct 28, 2017

New to launch in 2017, is the 16th Street Walking Tour – the ever-evolving “Main Street” of Denver. On this tour, guests will learn how 16th Street won the title of Denver’s “Main Street” in the late 1800s, when commercial buildings began moving away from Larimer Street and onto 16th Street.

This thoroughfare grew to be a destination for retail and entertainment, as well as a being an important transportation axis. You will observe how architectural styles seen along this “Main Street” reflect the ever-evolving functions of the street, from historic buildings that have been adaptively reused to contemporary buildings which filled a void in the streetscape and functionality of the street. Whether you have walked the Street a million times or you are new to the city, join us on this guided tour and see the 16th Street in a new light.
