Soon into my 45-minute drive to Boulder, the skyscrapers of downtown Denver are overshadowed by the craggy peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Around here, there’s clearly no need to choose between urban living and outdoor activities.
I make way for professional athletes and carousing college students alike when I check into the historic (and supposedly haunted) Hotel Boulderado. I find myself gaping at the ornate stained-glass ceiling above the lobby and the 1906 Otis elevator that I could not begin to operate on my own, and I’m equal parts pleased and terrified that I’m staying in room 304, which paranormal investigators have reportedly identified as particularly rife with activity.
