Larimer Square is the city's No. 1 historic district and it was integral to the earliest residents of Denver, many of whom were on the rough-and-tumble side. Today, a more genteel clientele strolls along this historic block of Larimer Street to visit its 23 retail shops, 20 of which are independently owned, and a lineup of excellent restaurants and hot spots for nightlife. A great time to visit is during a festival or event. Larimer is hopping during Restaurant Week in February. Le Jardin Secret, a French-inspired farmer's market, runs summer Saturdays; the Peachy Sidewalk Sale is in late July; there are spring and fall fashion shows and the Chalk Art Festival takes place in May.
- Sightseeing: "Some Larimer retailers, including Scarpaletto and Eve, a fine shoe shop and chic women's boutique respectively, will deliver to visitors' hotel rooms--no need to lug all the purchases around."
- Best for Sightseeing Because: Larimer Square celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2015, and it's a place where Denver's history and explosion as a notable food scene come together.
