Located just 30 minutes northwest of Denver, Boulder is a vibrant city nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with plentiful accommodations, from the upscale St Julien Hotel & Spa to historic haunts like the Hotel Boulderado to cozy bed and breakfasts, rustic inns and cabins. Stroll down the sunny Pearl Street Mall, a four-block pedestrian mall lined with coffee shops, stores and restaurants and dotted with street performers. Hike along the Boulder Creek Path or through Chautauqua Park, a National Historic Landmark, then grab a beer at one of the many craft breweries in town, including the popular Avery Brewing Company. There are also numerous museums, theaters, music venues — even a free tea factory tour! No visit to Boulder is complete without a visit to the beautiful University of Colorado Boulder campus, home to the annual Colorado Shakespeare Festival.
