Overview

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.

Plenty of great restaurants, stores and shops. Great place to people watch. My favorite thing was a big wet rock that children decorate with greenery. The children were really into it and were having a creative, fun time with it. Must see when in Boulder.

If you’ve come to Boulder and you haven’t hit the Pearl Street Mall yet, then you can’t leave. You haven’t really visited Boulder until you’ve walked the mall. Simple as that. :)

Lots of shops to see. We ate lunch and walked around. I think it’s worth experiencing if going to Boulder. It’s a nice vibe down Pearl Street.

Beautiful spacious outdoor mall with street entertainment. The street entertainer we saw was average at best and asked for too many donations, but a nice atmosphere and good dining and ice cream options. Definite must see and experience.

Although Boulder presents itself as outdoorsy and dog-friendly, when it comes to having a bit to eat, dogs are mostly welcome at breweries as the polite police officer let us know. Outdoor seating for restaurants, and outdoor seating in the middle of the Pearl Street...More
