No visit to Boulder is complete without a stroll down the world famous Pearl Street Mall. This one-of-a-kind experience is what visitors talk about long after their trip is over. Many of the buildings on the mall date back to the gold mining days of the 1880s and they have all been painstakingly restored to their original charm and elegance. Celebrating its 35 anniversary in 2012, the Pearl Street Mall is still center stage but the rest of downtown is flourishing around this landmark attraction! Read more history here!
