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.

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.

The Pearl Street Mall in Boulder is a colorful and enjoyable place to be, especially in the summer. There is quite a hustle and bustle of people coming and going about this outdoor mall. All sorts of stores are there, many with unique items. Musicians of all sorts of genres are seen and heard as you walk through the area. People are always pleasant and I get a good feeling when visiting this mall.

The Pearl Street Mall is a pedestrian area full of interesting shops and restaurants, many with outdoor dining. There are several parts set aside for children to play, including a fountain. Seasonal flowers in beds in the center of the mall provide beautiful colors spring through fall. The tulips are especially grand in spring. Multiple outdoor performers entertain throughout. There are frequent crafts and other festivals that draw locals as well as visitors.

This is a fun / free place to stroll for blocks and blocks, while people watching or shopping in cool shops or being entertained by local musicians. You'll find countless restaurants, many with outdoor dining, to suit your mood, whether you want a salad, sandwich, full meal or just a glass of wine. It might be touristy, but there seemed to be plenty of locals enjoying the Pearl Street Mall as well.

The heart and soul of Boulder, where everything happens from protests to festivals and art shows. A fabulous display of tulips in the spring.
Heaps of shops, restaurants and much street entertainment. Close to the historic Boulderado Hotel and the Boulder Creek path, and about a mile from Route 36, the main drag through town.
A must for any visitor to Boulder. warning: no dogs or bikes on the mall.
