Attractions in Boulder

  • Lace up your shoes and go for a HIKE! My personal favorite is Mount Sanitas. It is considered ‘moderate’ difficulty and is only a 3.5 miles loop. It has a rather steep incline, so not for the beginner. Here are some other popular trails in the area:
    • First and second flatirons (2.6 miles round trip – easy)
    • Eldorado Falls (2.5 miles round trip – moderate)
    • Green Mountain (5.5 miles round trip – difficult)
  • Boulder’s pedestrian mall is called Pearl Street and it is the heart and soul of the city. Most of the restaurants, shops and bars are dotted along Pearl Street and it is absolutely the best place to people watch.
  • Artisans of Boulder’s sister city in Dunshanbe, Tajikistan handcrafted a Boulder’s Dushanbe Teahouse and sent it piece-by-piece to Boulder, where it was reassembled. It is an example of incredible architecture with majestic carvings and paintings throughout. Their chai is to die for!
  • Boulder Theater is Boulder’s art deco theater that houses all the big names that come through Colorado to play. Check out the schedule while you are there and try to get in a show!
  • If you’re a runner, consider signing up for Boulder’s Memorial Day 10K, the Bolder Boulder.
  • Boulder’s Farmers’ Market was voted as the No. 1 farmers’ market in the country by USA Today and it is the best was to experience Boulder like a local.
  • If you want to go all out and get real local, check out Tonic Oxygen Bar where you can sit and read, drink tea and inhale essential oil infused oxygen. Considering Boulder is over a mile high in altitude, a little extra oxygen could do you a world of good!
