Follow us @visitboulder for more inspiration in your Instagram feed.
1. University of Colorado Boulder
With unique sandstone stonework, red-tiled roofs, an epic football stadium (Folsom Field) and the Flatirons within view, it's clear that CU Boulder #wokeuplikethis.
2. Flagstaff Mountain
Feel like you're on the top of the world and admire views for days from Flagstaff Mountain.
3. The Flatirons
Let's face it, Boulder's signature rock formations bring out the photographer in all of us. Spring, summer, winter or fall, this setting is exceptional. #nofilterneeded
4. Royal Arch Hiking Trail
Yep, this one seems destined for Insta-bragging, but be prepared: the hike to the arch is rigorous.
Please note: The Royal Arch Trail will be closed from 8am to 4:30pm Monday through Thursday this summer into the fall 2022.
5. Boulder Theater
This historic theater's art deco marquee is perfect for a creative take on Boulder's live music scene.
6. Rayback Collective
Strings of lights, pints of amber beer, smiling friends playing yard games and the Flatirons in the distance... we're not surprised Rayback Collective is on the list of most Insta'd in Boulder.
7. Boulder Farmers Market
With lush produce, bursting blossoms, stacks of freshly baked bread and samples galore, a morning or afternoon at the market will go like this: taste, click, taste, click... The market runs April–November.
8. Pizzeria Alberico
The pizza here isn't just mind-blowingly delicious. It's also pretty.
9. McGuckin Hardware
It may not be glamorous, but this hardware store is well worth a stop for everything you never knew you needed in one place. Plus, pups are welcome inside. Boulder is fanatical about locally owned businesses, and this is definitely a local fave.
Who can resist snapping pics of octopus-shaped ceramic drinking vessels and palm-tree wallpaper at this fun tiki bar in Boulder.
