    Tulips on Pearl Street

    Easter Weekend in Boulder

    Looking for a cheery spring getaway over Easter weekend? In Boulder, Spring flowers will likely be lifting their heads for their first drink of fresh spring air — all along hiking trails and Pearl Street flower beds. The Flatirons will start to show the first hints of spring green. And the town will be vibrant with events (including some delicious Boulder Easter brunch events). See below for a few of the highlights.

    Tulip Time on Pearl Street

    Downtown Boulder’s brick-paved Pearl Street Mall is filled with flowerbeds that bloom with upwards of 15,000 tulips in springtime. The timing of the buds’ opening is, of course, up to Mother Nature, but you will often see the tulips begin to pop up in early April, with peak time often happening mid to late April. Bring a camera and make a day of it with Pearl Street’s amazing shopping and dining.
