Boulder.. Pearl Street Mall is a 4 block pedestrian mall, always lots of people, lots of buskers, musicians and street performers.. Lots of nice little restaurants and cafes for coffee, lunch or drinks.. You can hire bicycles from university cycles and go for a ride along the Boulder Creek Path.. Or if you enjoy hiking there are several trails going into the mountains and to several famous lookouts.. If you're there on a wednesday afternoon or Saturday morning the Farmers Market is held on 13th Street, lots of fresh fruit and veggies and food stalls and depending when you go there is also often markets held there or in Pearl Street.. Check out the sites below.
