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.

Amazing place to visit, eat, shop and drink. Had a great time on Pearl St. for our anniversery. We were lucky enough to also have a Fall Fest going on which heightened our experience even more.

We stopped by Boulder and the Pearl Street Mall to end a two week vacation in Colorado. Boulder itself is amazing with the mountains nearly in your back pocket but the PSM was so much fun. It is not full of chain stores. Almost every store is unique. For example, we stopped by a place that sold a variety of items including some very unique tiles that we fell in love with. The vibe was very relaxed. It really felt like a college town. Madison Wisconsin is an example but it is less crazy and busy than Madison. For a snap judgement, we would live in Boulder if we were going to live in an urban environment in Colorado.

My friend and I checked out Pearl Street during Boulder's Fall Festival and there was so much going on! A lot of unique shops to check out, along with your run of the mill tourist destinations/souvenir shops. Everyone we met was friendly and welcoming.

We visited the Mall on the U of Colorado's parent weekend and on the eve of a football game vs UCLA. It was crowded and fun. The U of Colorado marching band put on a show that was fun to see, even for a pair of Buckeyes from Ohio. We were in Boulder for two days and ate at two Pearl Mall restaurants. One tip to remember is that while the Pearl Mall itself is great, the adjacent streets are also well worth visiting. Parking is OK, we were able to use our credit card at parking meters and in one of the garages. Once the marching band made it's way past our restaurant the regular didgeridoo musician (and how often can one say this!) resumed playing on the mall. To get the most entertainment, go on a weekend or at night.
