Larimer Square Walking Tour
With exclusive access to the D & F Tower*
At the site of Denver’s founding, you will explore Larimer Square “Then & Now,” learning about the first bustling city center, which eventually turned into skid row. With the threat of urban renewal, local citizens saved the block of buildings from demolition, and turned it into a thriving center again. The first Historic District of Denver, Larimer Square is now economically vibrant and preserved for future generations. On this tour you will also have the opportunity to tour the historic Daniels & Fisher Tower where guests will have a birds-eye view over Denver.
Meet your tour docent at the Kettle Arcade (1420 Larimer St), where the tour will begin. The tour will end at the D & F Tower (1601 Arapahoe St), after covering about one mile of walking, and lasting approximately 90 minutes.
* There are select days that the Larimer Square Walking Tours will not include exclusive access to the D & F Tower, and will last 70-80 minutes. We apologize for this inconvenience. Please note the title “with the Clock Tower” or “without the Clock Tower” when scheduling on the calendar. When the tour does not include the Clock Tower the price will be $15 for the general public.
*NOTE: There will be NO Larimer Square Tour on June 3rd due to the Larimer Square Chalk Art Festival.
On May 27th & June 10th the Larimer Square Tour will NOT include the D & F Tower upper floors. The tour will end in the lobby of the D & F tower, but we will not be able to go up into the top four floors of the tower. This tour will cost less at $15/person.
