Such a cute little street to walk in Boulder. Lots of shops, very relaxed. There was a fall festival there, so we got to see street art and street performances.

They've done a very nice job with the Pearl Street Mall - much of it is pedestrian only. There are some chain stores/restaurants but they are all nice. Lots of flowers, fountains, benches. Good people watching, great dining opportunities.

Lots of fun shops that offer items that range from souvenirs to Colorado style and decor. Even the name brand shops carry a different style of clothing. Fun restaurants and breweries as well.
