  • I consider PSM good for people watching, but not much else. Some of the stores are worth a stop if you are there, and the street performers are a good show.  more »
  • What is to rate here? This is the hub of downtown Boulder with food, drink, shops, and people. Street performers and buskers are always around, on the weekends in winter and everyday in the summer. Su...  more »
  • My favorite shop was the Alpaca Connection. There are so many shops that you should plan to spend most of the day just strolling form store to store.  more »

  • We loved this place! It is everything you could possibly want in one place. Excellent breweries, coffee shops, the most amazing bookstores, gift shops and entertainment. It's all here. Easy to walk and great for tourists. We spent an entire day there wandering the stores, eating delicious foods and enjoying the sights!
  • Oh Yeah! Fun and Entertaining pearl Street Mall the place to visit for sure! Breathtaking Views. We needed a little time to unwind , we had lunch at The Organic Sandwich near the mall and picked up fudge on our way out. It was a added bonus with nice customer focused service. We left satisfied and eagar to return with more friends and family! So many enticing places need to kick back time and plan a longer visit! We will return!
  • Pearl Street Mall is a wonderful area in boulder co, to shop and enjoy the scenery as well, most of the shops are somewhat expensive, so if your looking for low cost shopping this would not be the place, the restaurants are amazing with so many choices of food from different cultures, the mall area is safe and enjoyable, please remember this is a colledge town and students dominate during the school year. I truly enjoy the smaller shop's in this area, it's as if different little countries have set up shop. Driving in this area can be very tasking if you are not from the Denver area, parking can be tasking, I would recommend the parking garage there is off street parking and you must purchase a parking tag at the machine in the parking area, and there is handicapped parking also, but again I stress if you are not familiar with the area use your GPS, and the parking garage. Enjoy and breath in the variety that Boulder has to offer
  • A very nice mall with a open layout and a wide variety of stores. You are able to get anything from skiing gear to ice cream. Down the main street there are a bunch of flower beds with adjuring sculptures. Very often, you will be presented with a musician of some sort playing as you walk by. Many street performers doing a great many tricks. A wonderful place for all ages.
  • Great place to eat, shop, and watch buskers. Lots of people watching in summer. Plenty of parking in the four parking garages. Pay on-street parking available as well. Parking Control aggressively enforces so use the pay stations. Walking mall with no cars. No dogs or bicycle riding on the mall. The Boulder Creek Path is a short walk away.
