Welcome to Visiting Boulder
Boulder, Colorado is a city located at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Home to nearly 100,000 people, Boulder is a vibrant environmental, entrepreneurial, and artistic community.
If you are among the two million people who will visit Boulder in the coming year, we'd like to offer you an inside look at our town and the surrounding areas of Denver, Estes Park, Nederland, and the Rocky Mountains.
While you're here, you might like to dine at favorite local restaurants such as the New York Times-reviewed Frasca and the Kitchen. Or sample the many coffee shops, including the literary Trident and musical Laughing Goat. Lodging options include the historic Boulderado and the luxurious St Julien.
Of course, Boulder is most famous for its outdoor treasures. Opportunities to rock climb in Eldorado Canyon, ski at Eldora or Summit County, and hike throughout the Flatirons keep folks coming back to Boulder year after year.
Summer brings the Colorado Shakespeare Festival and other arts and musical events. We're delighted to share the following favorites from local residents. We hope you will enjoy your time with us.
