Settled in 1858 as Boulder City, Boulder has come a long way since its pioneer days. Now the modern day settlers enjoy used book stores, tea houses and of course, organic food at one of many establishments in the Pearl Mall.
Located halfway between Denver and Rocky Mountain National Park, Boulder is a perfect place to spend an afternoon and see some historic sites.
One of the most popular destinations for travelers and residents alike is to wander the car-free Pearl Street Mall. Located between eighth and twentieth street in downtown Boulder, this is the "People's Republic of Boulder" paradise. From art shops to cafes to bookstores, this is the place to find all things made local and also designer label goods.
This is the area where visitors spend most of their time. It is fun to meander around and admire the old Victorian brick buildings and pop into random shops.
Book lovers be sure to visit Red Letter Second Hand Books orBeat Book Shop for used and rare books.
