Looking for a way to escape the go-go-go pace of everyday life and focus entirely on your wellbeing for a few days?
Boulder has been a wellness destination since the late 1800s when a health retreat called the Boulder-Colorado Sanitarium opened at the foot of the mountains, drawing health-seekers from around the country. While the sanitarium is no longer, Boulder's wellness culture continues to thrive, putting all the ingredients you need to design your own wellness retreat at your fingertips.
Boulder is a center for mindfulness and meditation philosophy and practice, which is now recognized by the medical community for its measurable health benefits. You don’t need to go far to find a quiet, soul-reviving place to sit in stillness and observe your thoughts.
