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've seen a lot of pedestrian malls in America and Europe since setting foot on my first one in Kalamazoo, Michigan back in the 1960s. Boulder's Pearl Street Mall can hold its own with the best of them. We were fortunate to join the evening crowd on a football weekend. There was an electric vibe to the place and it was thronged with people, most of them young, having a wonderful time. The people watching was just about as good as it gets. I can't wait to do it again.

We had some extra time while visiting and found this area to walk around and browse at some shops. Peppercorn is the most amazing and complete "kitchen" you'll see anywhere!

Enjoyed spending the afternoon strolling around the mall, shopping (especially Into the Wind, a kite store with lots of other novelties), eating and drinking (Ted’s Montana - great food but incompetent service; and a friendly Starbucks). Lots of cute shops.
