Situated in the heart of an energetic city is beautiful, historic Downtown Boulder. At the heart of Downtown Boulder is the Pearl Street Mall, a wonderfully charismatic four-block-long pedestrian mall that celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2007. Colorful, bright flowers fill the mall almost the entire year and street performers, with a multitude of talents, make the Pearl Street Mall one of the best people-watching destinations anywhere.

We love the Pearl Street Mall. The stores are unusual and interesting, and it's easy to relax and enjoy watching the world go by. Coffee and food are high quality and readily available.

Hanging out on the Pearl Street Mall on a summer eve is a fun thing to do, especially if you have children. There are regular performers whom you'll soon recognize if you go more than once. It's nice that sections of the mall are pedestrian only and there are some fun shops to explore here.

We are from out of town but frequent Boulder often.We always make a trip to Pearl Street to watch the various characters(we passed a human marionette on the sidewalk) and eat good food.The shops are excellent but pricey. Fun in the summer with all the jugglers, and street entertainers

We loved this area. Many shops, trees, restaurants, and people line this street. It's the place to be, we walked up and down this street , in/out of all the stores more than once. My favorite part was all the live music performed by the locals ad the charming new age bookstores. A must when I the area.

I thought it looked just like 3rd Street Promenade. We found out it was designed after that street. Fabulous shops and restaurants. Lots of quaint artsy Boulder shops and many big chains. Eat at Oak and at Shine (just off Pearl)! Best Steve Madden/Freebird Store I've seen, including in NYC.

This was what we were looking for! Pearl Street has boutiques and restaurants for many blocks with a fantastic view of the mountains. Lots of choices to walk around and just window or shop or shop 'till you drop! The street was unique and being so close to the mountains it felt like a post card. It's about a 45... More

A very nice street mall area with no traffic and no smoking. The high end shops are there for the affluent crowd along with unique shops for the regular tourist crowd. A good mix of restaurants, artsy stores, and stores for the slightly eccentric. A must stop if in Boulder

My family was in town for the CU/Utah game and I decided to some Small Business Saturday Shopping. I fell in love! I have been wanting to go into the store Free People and never knew where to find one. LOVE it. I also went in to an awesome toy store and got some cool and different Christmas presents. I... More

Boulder Rocks! Hip, cool and fun. Very walkable. Pearl Street is a must, even if you don't have much money, it's worth it for the people watching. Although it's a college town, there is something for everyone.
