Boulder used to be one of my favorite places to visit in Colorado when I was growing up. There are so many different sites to see, unique people to watch, and places to eat. One of the spots in Boulder that you must see is Pearl Street. Now that I live in Boulder, this is probably one of my favorite places to go…still. I’ve introduced many of my friends to Pearl Street and they fall in love. The sidewalks are made of brick, the trees stand tall with history, and everything just feels so alive. There are many street performers too, ranging from magicians, to fire breathers, to contortionists. The shops on Pearl Street are also unique. There are some name-brand vendors but for the most part the shops are artsy and sell things that you won’t be able to find anywhere else. If you’re hungry you won’t have to worry about leaving Pearl Street to find a restaurant since you have so many choices at your fingertips. My personal favorite is Pasta Jay’s, it’s an Italian restaurant with white and red checkered table cloths. They probably have the best Italian that the West Coast has to offer (but that’s just my personal bias). So if you’re planning on making a trip to Boulder make sure you put Pearl Street on your “Place to Visit” list!
