Boulder, Colorado – endless things to do and see

Hike and picnic under Boulder’s famous flatirons, dance on Pearl Street at Bands on the Bricks, go to a concert at eTown Hall or Boulder Theater and fall into your comfy bed at The Bradley Boulder Inn for a well-deserved, deep sleep – and that’s just your first day in Boulder, Colorado!

Boulder is all about enjoying the great outdoors and we’ve got a lot for you to explore. Rocky Mountain National Park is under an hour away, but you don’t even need to drive more than 15 minutes from Boulder to be deep into the mountains up Boulder Canyon or Flagstaff Mountain, where mountain lions, mule deer, elk and bears roam and eagles fly overhead.

If you’ve never been to Boulder before, you’re in for a treat! Take a minute to enjoy the video below and peek into our Rocky Mountain wonderland on a summer’s day.
