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.

This is a collection of restaurants, shops, bars, and more. It is a sampling of everything Boulder contains. Walk through the area with college kids, middle age tourists, families with kids, and retired couples. Listen to a street performer, purchase items from large national retailers...More

Pearl Street Mall is worth seeing when in Boulder. I'm going out on a limb here, since malls are not my favorite places to visit. They tend to be very touristy with shops and eateries. But I think this makes for a nice family afternoon...More
