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.

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.
