LoDo Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Lower Downtown is likely Denver’s most familiar historic district to locals and tourists alike, as it attracts office workers by day and revelers by night—and don’t forget the baseball fans too. The very first buildings in the neighborhood likely burned or were flooded out, and after an 1863 ordinance required brick or stone, the next buildings became more permanent.
The mighty warehouses, mercantile centers, and railway buildings withstood the elements, boom and bust economic cycles, and early urban “renewal” efforts to become today’s lofts, offices, shops, restaurants, and bars in what is affectionately called LoDo by locals who are proud of this preserved corner of the Mile High City."
