Recommended for a stroll and shopping in boutique stores. No traffic in the open-air mall and interesting/unique stores besides the typical chain stores. Relaxing and felt safe.

Easy walking, lots of shops of all types. I think there must be something for everyone on this outdoor pedestrian mall.

If you are in Boulder, I would check out Pearl Street. It is very cute and has a lot of cool stores. Wish it had more stores and more restaurants but overall it’s a great place to go.

I think as long as the shops are open and the weather is good that anytime should be fine.

I think lunch time since there are several really nice places to eat. But anytime is great. Store hours vary. There is always something going on. Have fun.
