Reconnect in Boulder

Recreate This Day

Go behind the scenes of our "Reconnect in Boulder" video (above) and recreate all the smile-inducing scenes you see here — in real life. Zoom around town on bikes, traipse through meadow trails at the foot of the Flatirons and find yourself perched high above it all for an amazing meal at day's end. This is one tourism video you can easily emulate, and we'll show you how. 

Meet Up at Hotel Boulderado

The historic (and gorgeously updated) 1909 Hotel Boulderado has hosted notables from Robert Frost to Robert Plant. Stop in for a brunch of waffles Foster — a Belgian waffle drizzled in butter rum sauce — at the hotel's restaurant Spruce Farm & Fish. Or at day’s end you can come back here for a cocktail at the hotel’s friendly and buzzing Corner Bar.

Ride Around Downtown 

Boulder is a compact 25 square miles and is super bikeable. In fact, it’s one of the most bike-friendly cities in the U.S., according to People for Bikes. You'll find lots of bike racks for coffee breaks and a huge network of well-maintained paths and bike lanes. 

Cruise by Amazing Murals

Boulder has more than 135 murals, most of which have popped up in just the last couple of years. Find our Boulder mural guide here. The one you see in the video is by Gabriel Sanchez and can be found in the alley behind the Boulder Theater.

Boulder Theater

Stop for a photo-op in front of the Boulder Theater's famous marquee (and perhaps look into who’s playing the iconic venue that evening). Big-name and local musical acts alike love this venue for its art deco architecture, intimate size and cool downtown location.

Women Hiking Flatirons with Dog

Meet at the Foot of the Flatirons

What better place to reconnect with friends and loved ones than at Chautauqua at the base of the breathtaking Flatirons? They are only five minutes away from downtown by car, 10 minutes by e-bike or a tough all-up-hill 30-minute ride by regular bicycle. Hug, snap a few pics, hike a little, picnic. It’ll do your heart good.

If you’re visiting on a summer weekend, ride your rented bike or take the Park to Park shuttle to Chautauqua to avoid parking fees and congestion.

Take a Stroll Down Pearl Street

Park your bikes, and meander down Pearl Street, a historic pedestrian downtown lane that’s closed to traffic for four blocks (though the fun continues well “off the bricks” in either direction). You’ll find dozens of independent retailers, raved-about eateries and coffee shops galore.
