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.

“Lots of fun, different stores eclectic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A lot of fun walking the area. ate in a couple of different places (somewhat pricey). Sidewalk entertainers and many. many boutique-type stores. Easily accessible by bike.

Of course we were there before the floods. I hope it survived.

“Shopping in Boulder CO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Absolutely plan a trip to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder. Great shopping, plenty of selection. Made a few purchases at the Boulder Book Store, Peppermill, Crocs, Penzey's Spices and a smaller women's store. Leave room to pack some purchases in your bag for the return flight.

“Very pleasant indeed....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We had the opportunity of having a stroll down this mall in a very beautiful city of boulder. It was mid morning Sunday and it was a very pleasant temperature. We had lunch at a little pizzeria which was virtually a hole in the wall. The mall has plenty of places to eat and there are many shops. Is it too touristy....probably not. Worth a visit ..... I think so. I would happily do it again. We went after the floods and the damage is not located here.

“Fun place to go.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We enjoyed the Pearl Street Mall with its many shops and restaurants. There are several street performers with very unique talents. We saw an amazing woman using a hoopla hoop that I had not seen before. There was a contortionist who was very good and popular to the crowd. We also sat and listened to a man playing a large bass type guitar and he actually stood on top of it during the performance. There is a Cheesecake Factory restaurant there and we decided to sit at their outside seating while listening to a really great piano player. I would highly recommend this fun spot.

“Fun Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great outdoor mall. Tons of great shops and restaurants. You can find just about anything you're looking for. Active clothing, souvenirs, cycle equipment, the list goes on. There are even a few street performers. Fun way to spend the day.
