    Colorado Chautauqua

    Great for: History, science, nature

    Colorado Chautauqua Historic District

    In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Chautauquas were highly regarded family retreats, focusing on culture, education, music, nature, activities and sometimes religion. Boulder’s was founded in 1898, and the Colorado Chautauqua instantly became one of the nation’s most beautiful vacation spots and made proximity to the outdoors a key value for the community. Stroll around Chautauqua Park, the Chautauqua Auditorium, Chautauqua Dining Hall, general store and historic cottages and check out the audio guide linked below.
