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.

If you don't visit the Pearl Street Mall you haven't visited Boulder. Great atmosphere, people watching, shops, restaurants and street entertainers. It has it all.

Pearl Street is a pedestrian friendly wander-fest! On weekends and most of the summer there are street performers, good food options and brewpubs. Like most city downtown districts there are homeless people and street people who will be panhandling but they are not rude or aggressive.
It's a wonderful family friendly atmosphere with some reasonably priced shopping. Enjoy

Created in 1976 as one of the first pedestrian-only malls in the country, Pearl Street has been the place to go to people watch, shop and eat for nearly 40 years. Fantastic local restaurants and shops, fun street buskers and frequent special events makes it a wonderful place to spend an afternoon or evening. Great for singles, couples and families - there is something for everyone. Check out the Downtown Boulder website for current events. Free Wifi everywhere. No dogs allowed!

Pearl Street is an iconic taste of Boulder. Fabulous restaurants,funky and fun stores. In the summer, families congregate around the water fountain feature and the bronze animal statues. There are some genuinely street performers, especially the contortionist who fits himself into a seriously small box.
The big drawback are the street people, who congregate in the street. You are constantly hit up for money and often food, should you wander the street with a doggie bag.
