Pearl Street, along with the Flatirons, is part of the very heart and essence of Boulder. To visit Boulder without enjoying the sites, tastes, and sounds of Pearl would be like visiting New York without taking a stroll through central park. That being said, Pearl Street can seem a bit overwhelming without some sort of attractions compass pointing you in the right direction. But, never fear, for we've crafted a list of the most exciting, inexpensive, local, and down-right cool activities to do on this famous street. Our list includes theaters, museums, restaurants, breweries, bars, a farmer's market, local concerts, and even a bus tour, so no matter what you're in the mood for, you're sure to find it on our list and on Pearl.
Topping our list is a seasonal favorite, Bands on the Bricks; an event put on my the City of Boulder that brings local musicians to downtown Pearl for an all-out jam-session with Boulder citizenry and visitors alike. A beer garden, put on by rotation local breweries, is there each week to help you knock off that edge so you can get your groove on. Food vendors line the streets and everywhere there is dancing.
Some other unique attractions to be found on our list is the Boulder County Farmer's Market where you can get fresh produce and local wares, along with Mountain Sun Brewery where you can drink your fill of Boulder beer.
Stick to our list and you'll understand what all the Pearl hoop-la is about.
