Lots of local stores for window shopping and real shopping, as well as a lot of places to eat and drink on this pedestrian mall. But the best part is people watching and the street entertainers

Love meandering down Pearl street mall, taking in the street musicians and performers, popping into nice shops along the way. Add lunch at Oak and you have yourself a fun afternoon.
