    Nancy Geyer's Perfect Day in Boulder

    Nancy Geyer Museum of BoulderNancy Geyer is the former CEO of the Museum of Boulder at the Tebo Center and led the project to transform the old Boulder History Museum into the Museum of Boulder in its new, downtown location. Today the Museum of Boulder is a cutting-edge facility that tells Boulder's story — past, present and future — through vivid exhibits.  

    Tell us about your ideal day in Boulder.

    My perfect day includes spending time with my family, friends and Maggie, my golden retriever puppy. It starts with an early-morning hike on the Mesa Trail toward the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), which winds along the foothills.

    Then we would enjoy brunch in the Chautauqua Dining Hall. Chautauqua has such a wonderful history and an absolutely beautiful setting.

    Next, we would swing by the Museum of Boulder at the Tebo Center, so I could show my friends the latest exhibit and pick up the map for the Boulder Creek Path History Tour (PDF). We’d then bike the Boulder Creek Path and stop at the locations indicated on the map to learn a little history along the way.

    We would wander through the colorful Boulder Farmers’ Market and visit BMoCA, with a stop off at the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse for some late-afternoon tea and a snack.

    I love eTown, so if there were a live taping that evening, that would be at the top of my list. After the show, we would head down to Pearl Street for a late-night dinner at one of the many world-class restaurants.
