16TH STREET MALL - MALL PEATONAL

With two hundred trees and fifty thousand flowers distributed end-to-end, this mile-long pedestrian street has 28 outdoor cafes and offers the best place in town to see and be seen. I.M. Pei designed the street of gray and pink granite to emulate the pattern with diamonds that unfolds the body of the rattlesnake. Get on the truck, free and with stops at each corner, which is the only means of transportation authorized to walk this street. But let's not forget the horse-drawn carriages that can be strolled along Calle 16.

CENTRAL CITY & BLACK HAWK
