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.
