“Boulder might be the closest a college town is to heaven – and not just because it is located at 5,430 feet of rocky mountain high altitude.”
This statement appeared in the October 2003 issue of Sports Illustrated
, and we at the Boulder Inn couldn’t agree more. Whatever it is that brings you to Boulder, be it business, pleasure, or somewhere in between, you are sure to find yourself not ready to leave.
A city of 100,000 people including the university, Boulder is known for its beauty, its education, and its activeness. Of cities of comparable size, Boulder ranks number one in people who walk to work, and seven out of every ten Boulderites own bicycles. Because of the proximity to the Rocky Mountain foothills, Boulder is ripe with hiking, biking, and rock climbing trails.
Boulder is also home to great dining, and restaurants here are focusing more and more on buying local, to give you a truly local dining experience. The University of Colorado
, as well as national labs
, and NCAR
are sure to entertain your intellectual side, and there is no shortage of museums or art exhibitions. Live music can be found nearly any night of the week, and you’ll find the Boulder area ripe with local microbrews. Boulder is the type of town where before you’ve even left us, you’re already thinking about your next trip. Don’t take our word for it, though. Come see for yourself!
