About these ratings

In 1858, Green Russell struck gold at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. His discovery soon spread back to the East Coast, prompting people to pick up and move west. The site of the original pioneer camp (known back then as Auraria) soon grew into the charming area now known as Larimer Square. Although the city has since expanded, this historic 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 restaurants, shops and nightlife venues, Larimer Square is always buzzing with life. The square plays host to plenty of festivals and street performances. As one TripAdvisor user puts it, "There is always something new, interesting and fun going on."

Before venturing to Larimer Square, you may want to pay a visit to the Larimer Square website. Here, you'll find a listing of all the local businesses and upcoming events, not to mention a printable walking tour that offers background on some of the area's Victorian-era buildings.

Occupying the block of Larimer Street between 14th and 15th streets, Larimer Square can easily be reached on foot from downtown and LoDo, while the two nearest light rail stops are Theatre District - Convention Center a few blocks southwest (on the D, F and H lines) and Union Station several blocks north (On the C, E and W lines). You can visit Larimer Square at any time of day, though businesses adhere to their own hours of operation.
