Boulder is located just 30 minutes from Denver and 45 minutes from the Denver International Airport. It’s a university town with a mix of urban energy and outdoor recreation.
There’s a ski area just 30 minutes out of town. Eldora Mountain Resort has loads of snow and it’s so close plus there are 25 miles of fun waiting for you at the Nordic Center. Almost every Saturday there's live music in the Timbers Tap Room.
There's a trail right outside your hotel room door, and these are especially great in the winter.
That’s a lofty title we know, but that’s what Bon Appetit said about our food scene.
Great food means great cocktails and fun bevies, too.
And awesome bars.
How to navigate the town — the best of the best.
