For shopping, Cherry Creek Shopping
Center in central Denver is one of the
area’s top tourist destinations, offering
160 restaurants and stores – including
Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
Downtown Denver’s 16th Street Mall is
another popular tourist attraction. The 16-
block pedestrian and transit-way is
downtown Denver’s retail core and
includes the Denver Pavilions. Belmar, the
city of Lakewood’s downtown district,
offers 22 blocks of stores, boutiques,
restaurants, entertainment, parks, plazas,

Denver voters also approved the
FasTracks $4.7 billion transportation
initiative, which is shaping the way the
metro area grows and will not only
improve mobility, but will also provide
alternative transportation for employees
across the city. This plan calls for the
expansion of the entire metro Denver light
rail system – adding new lines, extending
existing routes and expanding the
regional bus network.
The Denver International Airport is also
core to area businesses, as well as for
the transportation needs of the region.
Located 23 miles northeast of downtown
Denver, the $4.2 billion airport
celebrated its 15th anniversary in
2010. The airport is the fifth-busiest
airport in North America and the 10th
busiest in the world.
All four sports venues are located near
downtown Denver and have played a
big part in the area’s revitalization. In

Rockies made their first World Series
appearance in 2007.
