    I believe that Boulder might be the top food destination in Colorado. I know that is a bold statement, but I think it's true. Here's why...

    • Bon Appetit magazine called Boulder America's Foodiest Town
    • Food & Wine named Pearl Street one of the Top 10 Streets for Foodies in America
    • Individual restaurants and bars in Boulder also continue to rack up the accolades, including Food & Wine mentions, James Beard awards and Wine Spectator awards.
    • There are 20 breweries in town, four wineries, four distilleries and one meadery.
    • Boulder is also home to master sommeliers, a cooking school, the country's best farmers' market and most importantly, people who love to eat.

    Foodies know that food is a great way to experience a community's distinct lifestyle. The suggestions in this section give you a peek into living like a local in a way that is fresh and all about food. So, what are you waiting for? Check out the chefs' suggestions. If you like them, I hope you'll stop in their restaurants to give them a full report. They'd like to hear from you!
