About Pearl St.

Pearl Street Mall is a pedestrian walk way filled with local shops, great restaurants, bars, and numerous street entertainers. Hotel Boulderado is a local landmark and one of the few places to stay near Pearl. AirBnB might be a good alternative to a traditional hotel here. There's a nice farmer's market at 13th st and Canyon on Saturdays during the warmer months. Oak at 14th is an amazing restaurant if your looking for an upscale dinner.
