What Are Things to Do in Downtown Boulder

Are you wondering what things to do in Downtown Boulder? There is so much to see and do in this booming town that the question you should be asking is what to do first!

The first stop on most tourists list is a trip to Pearl Street Mall. Here you will find well over 100 stores, many of which are unique shops to the Boulder area. Shops like Peppercorn, Paper Doll, and the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory are must-sees. Check out some of the area’s art museums, microbreweries, as well as the many street entertainers outside the mall such as didgeridoo players and jugglers.

If you get a little hungry after all that fun then try any one of downtown's unique restaurants. Black Cat Restaurant is dining at its finest, and sure to leave a lasting impression. Locals will tell you that Jax Fish House is really where it’s at however, and with nightly oyster happy hour, how can they be wrong? If your sweet tooth is calling then try a freshly made cupcake from the Tee & Cakes bakery. There are a few walking tours for those history buffs that want to hear all about the city’s history and future. You can also take a stroll through Central Park on the Boulder Creek Path while enjoying the sounds of the rambling creek.

If you are after the city nightlife then don’t miss Bently’s Nightclub, or Fox Theater and Café. Good spots to wet your whistle are the Walrus bar, The Sink, and Johnny’s cigar bar. Illegal Pete's and Japango have drink specials from 5 to 9 p.m. every day.

There is so much to see and do in downtown Boulder you won’t possibly be able to cover it all in one trip. Be sure to check out local events for the months you are visiting as well, as there is always some annual celebration going on downtown.
