The Pearl Street Mall is a major tourist attraction in Boulder, as well as a favorite hangout for students at the adjacent University of Colorado Boulder. Locally owned companies coexist with national chain retailers and eateries at the mall.  It’s also where a lot of Boulder‘s nightlife happens. Several street performers, including musicians, perform on Pearl Street Mall during the summer months.

The Pearl Street Mall is lined with public art, including fountains and sculptures, as well as a sandbox for kids, a stylized map of Boulder County, and a number of tiny gardens with a variety of flowers and trees, including tulips in the spring.
