The Sheraton Denver Downtown, ZERO TO THREE’s home away from home for this year’s Annual Conference, is located directly on Denver’s 16th Street Mall and within walking distance to many local attractions. What can we say, we want you to have the best conference experience you can have – both inside the hotel as you explore valuable content and outside the hotel as you explore Denver.
Denver’s 16th Street Mall
The 16th Street Mall, just over a mile in length, boasts 42 outdoor cafes and more than two dozen shops and restaurants! Traveling up and down the 16th Street Mall is a breeze. Hop on and off the MallRide, a free shuttle bus that stops on every corner along this bustling street. Take a ride in one direction to get a lay of the land, and choose which shops, cafes, and restaurants to explore on your ride back.
Nearby History and Culture
South of the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel sit many museums and sights to see. Take a stroll around Civic Center Park (check out the Civic Center’s traveling art installation, Ai Weiwei’s “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads”, before it moves on to its next destination!), visit the Colorado State Capitol and Colorado State Museum Building, the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Central Library (venture to the children’s section and you’ll find yourself in an oh-so-inviting wonderland), the Molly Brown House Museum, the History Colorado Center, the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, and the list goes on and on!
Immersive Exploration – Denver’s Neighborhoods
Denver is home to distinct neighborhoods, each with its own culture and character. Be moved by art displays in the Art District on Santa Fe, delight your ears with live jazz in Five Points, immerse yourself in local events in East Colfax, and enjoy countless other activities in the rich neighborhoods of Denver.
