Who needs snow? Savvy travelers know Boulder, Colo., best as a summer retreat. A sun-drenched university town, this hip, mountain-fringed village lies just 40 minutes from Denver. with cool summer nights and temperate days, it draws its denizens outdoors to play. Come hungry for its rising food culture and fitness-ready for its high-energy mountain pace. On the Pearl Street (pedestrian) Mall, you'll listen to street musicians and peruse independently owned shops. On the grassy lawn at Chautauqua State Park, you'll picnic into the wee hours. And at night, you'll sit beneath the stars while Shakespeare thrills you with each soliloquy. That's the Boulder way.
