A short 45-minute drive from Denver and you’re in the Republic of Boulder, a chic yet hippie city that basks in the glory of its red Flatiron peaks. When Denver locals want a break from the city gridlock, this is where they go. A thriving restaurant scene provides plenty of food options; some of the best beers in the state are brewed in town; and Boulder’s quirky Pearl Street Mall is a pedestrian oasis full of shops and patios. Whether you enjoy a hike or want to indulge in some R&R, Boulder is the place to do it.
