Guide to South Pearl

If life were a Norman Rockwell painting, Old South Pearl Street would be the backdrop. The nine-block strip of Victorian houses, shops and eateries has a mid-20th century wholesomeness, which is the best thing about this quaint nook. Although it is marketed as the "Heart of South Denver," resting between East Evans Avenue and Butchel Boulevard, South Pearl is located only 7 miles from downtown Denver, and even closer to the University of Denver. Coincidentally, businesses began to sprout in this area over a century ago largely due to the Denver Tramway Company trolley, and now South Pearl is more accessible by public transportation than it has been since that time with the light rail, which runs almost directly to the neighborhood. Overseeing the region's merchants is the Old South Pearl Street Association, which is comprised of area business-owners, which hosts a street fair — with over 100 vendors and Mother's Day 5k. South Pearl also has a Farmer's Market where local farmers and artisans display their handiwork. More
