Back in 1858, Larimer Square housed the entire Denver community. Although the city has since expanded, this historic downtown neighborhood remains the heart and soul of the Mile High City, and according to some, it's the place to start your Denver experience. Home to numerous historic buildings, restaurants, shops and nightlife venues, Larimer Square is always buzzing with life. The square plays host to numerous festivals, one of the most popular being June's La Piazza dell'Arte, during which hundreds of artists use the street as their canvas for pastel masterpieces.
