The heart of Denver is also the epicenter of entertainment for the Rocky Mountain region. Broadway tours, the Colorado Symphony, local theater and the ballet share stages at the Performing Arts Center. Downtown food choices range from fast-food bites to creative cuisine and gourmet extravaganzas. The mile-long 16th Street Pedestrian Mall is the place to shop, dine and people-watch, while the convention center hosts conclaves to concerts. Hotels and spas are plentiful, from historic to chains to cutting-edge.
