Tucked into a picturesque valley below the iconic Flatirons, Boulder hosts thriving tech and natural foods industries, supports a renowned entrepreneurial community, has some of the region’s best restaurants, and is home to many federal research labs and a world-class university. No wonder this Rocky Mountain town of approximately 100,000 people is a world-class destination.
There are endless ways to get out and enjoy the 300-plus days of sunshine a year: from the hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails to some of the best rock climbing in America. Take a simple stroll with the family down the historic Pearl Street Mall, rent a B-Cycle bike and ride along the more than 300 miles of bike paths, or hang out by Boulder Creek and for some great people watching.
Boulder has become a “foodie town.” You can grab a bite to eat at any one of the many award-winning, innovative restaurants after a long day’s hike. And while you’re visiting what’s considered “the Napa Valley for Craft Brewing,” why not take a break for a cold one. In Boulder alone, there are dozens of some of the country’s finest microbrews.
Mountain bikers, dirt bikers and casual bikers alike will all fall in love with the Valmont Bike Park, one of the most unique and diverse bike parks in the nation.
