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. « less

You can find clothes, jewlery and household items. Great variety and originality. The Peppercorn is an institution, it should have stores all over the US. It has everything "under the sun"... Cookware, dishes, skin care, fragrances, gift items of all kinds. When you think you have seen the whole store you discover another area, with more...

Great mix of cages and shops, can find everything you need here. Little bit pricey but really pleasant place to enjoy a coffee. Check out the snail statue, very cute!

While visiting Colorado in September 2014, we stopped in Boulder for a few hours to experience the flavor of the city. Pearl Street offered many shops and eateries. The landscaping of the many flowers and shrubs was beautifully done. Great area for people watching!

This was one of the prettiest outdoor urban malls I've seen, very green and with wide pedestrian strips so you never felt jammed in a crowd. the stores, restaurants and street performers all made for a really fun and entertaining day. I will definitely go back next time I visit the area.

After a day of business, this is a great stroll. Most nights there is some type of street performance going on. Most surprising for me were very animated BBoy demonstrations. There are a bunch of great restaurants along Pearl. The food is every bit as creative as Portland or SF.

There are some nice shops and restaurants but there are too many aggressive people asking for money. Some of them appear to be high, drunk, or both and are just behaving badly. Some of them get in your face and follow you around. We have been to many third world countries where we were hassled less. We cut our stay... More

I am not a big shopper so I can't really comment on the stores (except Penzys Spices and the Bookstore which were both great) but this is such a nice place to enjoy a relaxed afternoon stroll. Granted, we had great weather on an early September Saturday afternoon, so it was the perfect day to experience this. There were many... More
