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.

This is the first time I have been there. I loved all the different shops and restaurants that are part of the mall. I would definitely go back and spend some more time there.

We enjoyed the visit to Boulder and toured daily. Pearl street has some really cool shops. The downside is the hours for most store was like 10-10:30 to 6. So very short window to shop for tourist. But yet a quaint neat area.

The Pearl Street Mall was wonderfully decorated during the December holiday season. It was lit with thousands of lights which put people in a festive mood. There are several micro breweries like the Post and Oskar Blues and a dizzying array of world class restaurants...More

The Pearl Street mall has tons of great places to shop from clothing stores to Home furnishing stores. Of course, it’s outdoors so dress accordingly. Plenty of fun outside art and places to eat! Go visit!

We enjoyed the variety of shops and loved the quick stop for cheesecake to go on our way back to the car. We were on a time crunch to get back the paid parking spot or we might have stayed longer.

This is like the mall of Boulder but it is not a common mall, here all the stores are at the outside. There is several restaurants as well. We have an amazing time with the family. Parking is very easy and it is not expensive.
