Walking around in Lodo was fabulous. I felt so safe and everyone I encountered was very friendly...no worries!

On the North end of LoDo this formerly light industrial area is under going a transformation and the street art on the buildings is worth a look. There are a collection of eating places and breweries.

The new Union Station is terrific and there are also good restaurants around the area. I would definitely stay down here again.
