We drove around and didn't find anything intriguing enough to pay for parking and explore. The State Capitol is in the vicinity so we found easy inexpensive metered parking right next to it and toured it.

After hearing so much about LoDo we had to visit the area. We have visited many cities and did not see anything special about LoDo. We found Larimer Square much more interesting.
