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 think Pearl st is the place to shop, to walk, to eat and to experience the culture of Boulder. You won't miss this place when you visit Boulder.

The mall is an active vibrant shopping district. It has very few chain stores, so it is unique. The Boulder Book Store is one of the gems. The staff in the store actually know what is in all of the nooks of the three story operation. The restaurants are also non chain operations making this a neat place to eat. There is a "water play" area that kids love.

Obviously, being outside, you will first require a nice day - but, Boulder has lots of those!

There are shops and eateries for any interest or appetite. There are street musicians, street vendors, and interesting people to watch. Also, for kids, there are some play areas there the kids can play while the adults enjoy a coffee, sno-cone, or other treat.

The New Flanders Brewery and Restaurant is great. Good selection of food and drink. And, Into the Wind is a great shop for toys, gadgets, magic tricks, and of course, kites.

Plan to spend 3-4 hours wandering through various shops, and add 1.5 hours for an enjoyable lunch or dinner. Take your time. This is not a place to just run through. The charm is in the browsing.

A lot of fun walking the area. ate in a couple of different places (somewhat pricey). Sidewalk entertainers and many. many boutique-type stores. Easily accessible by bike.

Of course we were there before the floods. I hope it survived.

Absolutely plan a trip to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder. Great shopping, plenty of selection. Made a few purchases at the Boulder Book Store, Peppermill, Crocs, Penzey's Spices and a smaller women's store. Leave room to pack some purchases in your bag for the return flight.
