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.

I always enjoy walking along the mall and shopping and/or going out to eat. There are so many options, not matter what you're in the mood for.

It's the Bourbon Street of New Orleans, the Broadway of New York, the Magnificent Mile of Chicago. Can't come to Boulder and not stroll Pearl Street Mall. Lots of shopping, eateries, vendors and street entertainers. When the weather is good, it can become crowded, but even if you're not interested in eating/drinking, you can enjoy the people and a leisurely walk on this pedestrian mall. Check out the side street merchants as well. Free parking on the weekend and is also near the Saturday Farmer's Market during summer. You can't really make a day of it, but a nice diversion for a couple of hours, especially if you have a meal or a couple of drinks. Lots of outdoor seating at most restaurants. I personally like it crowded, but still nice during the more quiet winter months.

Back in 1992 I came to Boulder for the first time. The Pearl Street Mall was such an idyllic, warm, family orientated place, I immediately started looking into what rentals in Boulder were going for at the time. I absolutely fell in love with Boulder and knew I would move here one day. That day came in 1998, stopping here once or twice a year in the interim. There is food, cafe's, snacks, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, the Boulder Book Store, and tons of awesome and unique stores. It is endowed with a natural and man made beauty that is rarely seen. In the Spring and Summer there are street performers, hair wrappers... I have lived here 14 years and I still get the warm and fuzzies when I spend the day here. If you are coming through Boulder spend a Saturday or Sunday here and you may be moving to here also.
