More than 70 establishments populate this very walkable area just south of downtown Denver. While the First Friday Art Walk is a huge draw for visitors and locals, the district's galleries, restaurants and retail shops are open all week. The greatest concentration of shops, galleries and restaurants is in an eight-block area between 4th and 12th along Santa Fe Drive. In addition to shopping, various classes are offered, space is available for private parties and events and there are two theaters and a museum, too. All of the galleries and shops in the Art District are independently owned and roughly 90 percent of the artwork and merchandise is made in Colorado. My advice is to join the First Friday Artwork and get an excellent overview of what's in the district. Then return (again and again) to find that special piece that belongs in your home.

- Best Shopping: "Parking is possible but traffic gets heavy on First Fridays so make it easy on yourself by taking the light rail to the 10th & Osage station and waking from there."
- Recommended as Best Shopping Because: The district has 40 galleries and some 30 other retail stores, providing a shopping experience not duplicated anywhere else in Denver
