Boulder, Colorado

The Flatirons create a stunning geological backdrop to this scenic mountain town where a quaint downtown welcomes visitors with a variety of dining options, art galleries, boutique shopping, and street entertainment.

Begin your cultural excursion by touring the Dairy Center for the Arts. Formerly a dairy production plant, the Dairy Center is now utilized as a multi-purpose space for traditional art exhibits, live musical performances, ballet, foreign film showings, theater, and even stand-up comedy. Next, head to the Leanin’ Tree Museum for a comprehensive display of Western art including bronze sculptures, paintings, and gifts. Sip and dine at Avery Brewing Company, where the food is farm-to-table fresh and the brews top-notch. Boulder is also home to the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory where tastings and tours of a working tea factory will thrill all ages.

Head outdoors and hike the inspiring altitudes of Chautauqua park. Watch rock climbers scale mighty heights at Eldorado Canyon and hike the trails for views of mountain streams and waterfalls. Every level of hiking difficulty is well-represented in Boulder. Science aficionados will enjoy the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) where you’ll discover several interesting exhibits on extreme weather and climate tracking. Astronomy lectures, interactive exhibits, and lasershows await at Fiske Planetarium where kids and adults alike will have fun exploring the outer reaches of space.
