Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to take on this romantic 2.5 mile through Denver’s most romantic spots. Here’s where to go for a Valentine’s Day walk through downtown Denver.

We picked up some chocolate from Rocky Mountain Chocolate, and then we enjoyed our 6-7 block walk on 16th Street Mall to arrive at Wynkoop and Union Station. Built in 1880 and then remodeled in 1911, this throwback to rail heydays still stands in glory. Once over 150 trains came through a day, and now Rapid Transit Denver can take you by rail to Denver International Airport.
