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.

Spent a Saturday afternoon here with wife and kid.

It was interesting watching street performers and taking samples of products along the nearby farmers market. Plenty of variety to keep you from getting bored.

Pears Street Mall is closed to auto traffic. Great place to walk around and shop for local goods. There are many choices for food, and outside street music and entertainment is normally on tap.

Pearl Street Mall makes me happy. There are almost always talented buskers/street performers entertaining the crowds, many good stores, always something to see and do... grab a seat at an outdoor patio restaurant/cafe and enjoy an afternoon of people watching. It never disappoints!

We always wander down and around Pearl Street Mall. The grands love all the people, sights and sounds. There is plenty of locally owned shops and restaurants to visit along the way/day. When the weather is nice all the street artists come out to play. A fun and funky place to visit and walk off some of the food.

Pearl Street is a 5 block pedestrian mall lined with outdoor cafes, artsy shops and high end restaurants. There are multiple attractions for kids including rock sculptures, a large sandbox and water sprinklers. The highlight of the place are the people especially the street performers. You will see clowns, jugglers, acrobats, musicians, magicians, face painters, preachers, street peddlers and more.... More

Nice walking street with lots of shops and restaurants and people watching. Given the time of year, the spring flowers were in bloom and there was also a violin school performing.

Loved the tulips in bloom in all the planters. With the bright blue sky and crisp air, it was a perfect day to stroll. Found some great shops to browse and enjoyed the abundance of benches to relax.

Yeah, there are great restaurants and wonderful art galleries, shops full of expensive must-haves but let's be honest - the real attraction here is the people watching and the splendid view of the Boulder foothills. We've got it all from crazy students to aging hippies to flush techies and EVERYTHING in between. A great place to sample a taste of... More

We took a couple of casual strolls along Pearl St and enjoyed ourselves so much. We had a late breakfast of organic food, a fine dining evening, a Ben & Jerry's ice cream, a coffee, and some unique shopping. It is great for people watching, relaxing, and just hanging out. There are plenty of benches if you need to sit,... More
