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.

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

Best place in Boulder to enjoy it's diversity, imagination, food, culture, music, buskers, kiosks, shops and people. Even locals go there. Check the web for events listings because there's so much to do in and around the Pearl Street Mall. Boulder has the best restaurants I've ever been to. Don't miss it, summer, spring, winter or fall. It's yours.

The Pedestrian Mall is so well done, very pretty and enjoyable, a great showcase for Boulder. There were excellent street performers when we were there. The shops are varied and fun to browse. A fun way to spend a few hours.

Good and unusual stores like Peppercorn and the Art Co-op. Lots of fun buskers in the nice weather.The parking structure on 14thand Walnut is convenient (free on... More

I work a block over from Pearl so I experience Pearl daily, we often stop by Pearl St. on the weekend also. The best coffee is the Cup Espresso Café east of 15th. the customers are the typical Boulder crowd in that most look like they went to the stylist before coffee but the coffee is the best. The shops... More
