Nestled at the foot of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, Boulder combines outdoor adventure with hip urban entertainment. Outdoor recreation includes cycling, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, hot air ballooning, horseback riding, golfing and so much more. In winter skiing at Eldora Mountain Resort is just a short 30-minute drive away up the scenic Boulder Canyon.
Pearl Street Mall is Boulder’s heart and soul –where locals and visitors stroll among the shops and historic storefronts and dine in the delightful restaurants. Boulder has been “beer central” for decades, and now wineries and distilleries are among the dozens of reasons to say “cheers” in Boulder. Take a driving or walking tour or climb aboard the Boulder Brew Bus for behind-the-scenes tastings at multiple breweries.
You have to see the Flatirons, which are slanting, massive slabs of sandstone that form Boulder’s backdrop from any angle.
