  • The Mall is one of the most festive parts of Boulder, an impressive feat in only four blocks. The Mall offers dozens of restaurants and more dozens of shops to keep everyone happy. Street performers abound in the summer months and many stay around all year, most are very entertaining. If four blocks isn't enough to keep your interest, fun little local shops and eateries stretch for several additional blocks both to the east and west. Downtown Boulder staff does a superb job with landscaping and keeping everything pretty and tidy.
  • Pearl Street is very much a heart of the Boulder community. Lots of people come here, there's always lively foot traffic and shops to look it, and overall it's always an enjoyable time. There are lots of talented street performers who do shows here. Along with the crowds though, come some people who are a bit odd, and potentially annoying. The restaurants are often packed full, especially on nights and weekends. But that shouldn't deter anyone from coming and seeing what's here, especially with everything in walking distance and plenty of opportunity for people of all ages.
  • I personally love Boulder so I happen to love Pearl Street. It's progressive, has great coffee shops and food along the way. Friendly people walking the streets, with street musicians playing lovely music, giving it a great atmosphere. Many of the shops are awesome and worth checking out. Not to mention tins of Pokémon if that interests you.
  • I love the Pearl Street Mall. It is the heart beat of Downtown Boulder. Great stores,restaurants,and live street performers which are amazing.!! I also love the fact that most, if not, all the businesses are independently owned & operated. It is important too keep these businesses thriving in our ever changing Economy.
  • Great pedestrian mall with a huge selection of locally-owned shops and restaurants. There are not many chain stores and restaurants here, which has always impressed me. Some of the street music is really quite good as well!
