Owner description: 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.

Great place to walk around, people watch, shop, restaurants galore, just an overall fun place to hang out for a few hours. Close to CU campus, in the heart of downtown Boulder, with a myriad of dining choices and outdoor entertainment.

Lights and snow in the winter, a wonderland. Tulips in the spring. People and street entertainers in the Summer. Colors in the Fall. Lots of action with good bars and restaurants.

There are some things I love about Pearl Street (Boulder Theatre, many of the restaurants and bars, being outside and the spring tulips) and some things I can't stand (the homeless, obnoxious drunk or stoned morons and constant wiffs of weed). Parking is always pretty easy, meter, street, or garage. We always bring out-of-town guests to eat and walk Pearl.... More

We went there mostly to walk around. It was really fun. There were also some unusual and fun stores and we ended up buying some things. Great thing to do for an afternoon or a couple of hours. There are also a bunch of places to eat if you are so inclined.

A busy place filled with interesting shops. There is a soda pop store that has all flavors of soda, including ranch and bacon. If you like people watching, this is the place for you.

We had a great time walking down pearl street and eating at an Italian restaurant. There were a number of decent street performers and some great shops to brows or shop. It's great for everyone and has a lot of different types of things to see and food to eat.

Pearl Street Mall has amazing shops, everything you could want and high quality. The winter holiday season is one of my favorite times, the lights and festivities create a wonderful place to spend the afternoon or evening. Great restaurants on the mall and just past 11th and 15th streets.

Lots and lots of shopping at the quintessential Boulder site to see. Aim for Peppercorn for kitchens galore and lunch at the Dus

A colorful, busy, artsy, fun, creative Pedestrian Mall to be proud of in Boulder, CO.
