  • This was my second visit to Pearl St. and we loved it both times. There's honestly too many places to visit in one day. This outdoor shopping mall is nothing like I've been to in the Midwest (what I'm used to). The shops have something for everyone in them. The various bookstores and toy stores were my favorite. I especially enjoyed the Trident Booksellers and Cafe. Having the option to get my favorite drink and explore a unique bookstore is my favorite way to spend any day.
  • Great outdoor walking mall with all sorts of shops, restaurants, and bars. Loved the Ruthie's specialty grilled cheese sandwiches. When we visited, the public restroom on the mall was out of order and closed but less than 1/2 block down we could use the easily accessible courthouse restrooms.
  • A great place for anyone and everyone to have a wonderful time, to shop, enjoy great food and ice cream, walk around and relax. 100's of stores with 20+ eateries (including 5+ ice cream/gelato shops), 20+ clothing and 10+ accessories, art museums etc. The ambience was also quite nice and we all loved just walking around and seeing the mountains and other shops in the Mall. The list of shops can be found at
  • The Pearl Street Mall is one of my favorite places to visit whenever I'm in Boulder! I love that it's not only a place for shopping and eating, but also entertainment and play! Boulder does an amazing job keeping it clean - and the flower beds well maintained. There are fun, one off, places for the kids to play and "get the wiggles out". Next time, I definitely want to let my kiddos play at the splash pad! I was very excited to introduce my kids to the Boulder Bookstore, and I am SO happy they loved it as much as I do!!
  • Just such a nice downtown area to shop and eat. I always take visitors here to give them the full Boulder experience. There's some great restaurants and bars. I like to go to Savannah Bee Company for the Mead flight they offer. I love the tulips and flowers all along it in the spring. Also fun to see street performers of all different varieties.
