Nice national landmark to see and snap a pic if you happen to be downtown. Although I've heard you can do tours of the tower I have yet to do one. It is great to see it illuminated, particularly when lighted in festive Xmas colors.

We were fortunate to attend a reception at the top of the clock tower in Denver! We took the elevator to the floor at the base of the clock, where a DJ and musician provided live entertainment. Doors let us walk out onto the balcony, providing a 360 degree view of the city! From there, we took stairs up several... More

A very lovely tower in the Denver skyline. It is lighted purple (or pink depending who you ask!) at night. It is located on 16th ave and you can have a coffee outside at Starbucks while admiring it and resting your poor feet!

The Daniels and Fisher tower is so tall you can see it from any part of the downtown area. It's an absolutely gorgeous icon of the city. I got lost a couple times while running around the downtown area and used the clock tower to find myself back to the tower. The tower is 325 feet high and 20 floors... More

This place is a good landmark--easy to find, helpful in getting orientation if walking around. Apparently they have tours, but O was unclear if that's a tour of the area or a tour of the tower.

This is a nice backdrop to a mostly chainstore strip pedestrian mall but somehow still has good local charm. The free bus makes it easy to enjoy very cold weather

Completed in 1912, the Daniels and Fisher Tower was originally a centerpiece department store and the highest building west of the Mississippi River when it was first built. It is 372' tall. The design was inspired by the Campanile in Saint Mark's Square in Venice. It's on the National Registry of Historic Places since 1969 and is located prominently on... More

I love walking the 16th street mall and having the Daniels and Fisher Tower in the background. Last night it was lit up purple and could be seen from a mile away (see pic). Make your way down to the tower if your on the 16th street mall, it's beautiful up close and worth the extra 5 min. Enjoy!

This tower was at one time the tallest building in the western US. Seems small as we look at the surroundings now.
