Downtown Denver has a lot to offer. If you like bars, pool, and breweries, LoDo is the right spot. You can catch public transit (RTD buses and Light Rail) to downtown, and walk to LoDo with ease. Catch a ballgame in the summer, and cool off at the Breckenridge Brewery, The Broadway Brewery, or Crocks on 16th and Market. Croc's has some of the best Mexican in Denver. (The margaritas flow pretty liberally, too) Not far from LoDo is the 16th Street Mall with it's free shuttle buses and numerous shopping experiences. At the Opposite end is the Denver Pavilions Area with the Hard Rock, Wolfgang Puck's, and other high end fun. Check out the Clubs around LoDo: El Chapultepec has Jazz. Plus all of the fun of Larimer Square.
Pros: Bars, Sports, Food
