Fun Things to Do in Boulder, Colorado

While Boulder is primarily known as a college city, don’t think for a second that the area is too brainy for a vacation. There are plenty of active and entertaining things to do in Boulder. Whether you seek adventure, laughs or some exciting live events you will find plenty of activities in Boulder, Colorado.

Let’s start by reviewing the top attractions in the city. Boulder Creek Path is a nature corridor that offers a 16-mile long walk through the city and into the mountains. There are no street crossings along the trail, only bridges and underpasses. This makes it a popular spot for biking, trekking and jogging. Along the trail you can see landmark locations like the Kids’ Fishing Ponds, the Xeriscape Garden and the Boulder Canyon Pioneer Trail.

If you want something a little more “intoxicating” then check out Boulder Beer Company on Wilderness Place. This microbrewery offers a 25-minute tour of their brewery process, from the grinding to the bottling. Since the pub actually overlooks the plant, even if you skip the tour you can still enjoy the brewery experience. If tea is more your style then catch up with Celestial Seasonings. This tea producer offers a tour and samplings of over 90 varieties of tea from 35 different countries. Museums may seem brainy to kids, but they will keep adults and students entertained. Make plans to attend the Boulder History Museum, the CU Art Museum and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.

Lastly, don’t forget to explore the sporting and outdoor activities of Boulder. You can visit Eldorado Canyon State Park and go rock-climbing or horseback riding. Other enjoyable diversions include Fair Winds Hot Air Balloon Flights, the Colorado Athletic Training School and the Boulder Reservoir where you can go fishing for bass.

There is lots to do in Boulder City, Colorado’s Smartest City!
