A successful example of urban refurbishment in Denver is Larimer Square, with well-restored buildings of the Civil War period. In 1971, Larimer Square became Denver’s first historic district.
Today, it is a major entertainment district. The area is home to art galleries, shops, cheerful restaurants, and gas lamps. It continues to evolve and is popular with both locals and tourists.
During the day, most people come here to shop. In the evening, this is a great place for dining or seeing some live entertainment, such as comedians or bands.
This area is also famous as the place where Buffalo Bill lived at one time.
