Attraction details
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.

“Need many hours”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I could have spent many more hours exploring the great shops at the Pearl Street Mall. Buskers, street performers and great atmosphere. However, there were the pesky panhandlers and Greenpeace militants to deal with as well. I learned to walk with purpose. Great stores in a lovely atmosphere, though.

“Everything's there.”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It's sort of commercial, of course, but still cool after all these years, with everything from pubs to coffee shops to boutique clothing imported from Nepal.

“Great Place to Visit”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

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.

“What a FUN place to be!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

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.

“Fall Festival Fun”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

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.
