Known as “The Boulder Bubble” or “the city nestled between the mountains and reality,” Boulder is a fun, hip town. It is about 20 minutes from the hotel and sits below large sandstone slabs called the Flatirons. Pearl Street (which is pedestrian only), is the place to be! It is lined with unique shops and fabulous restaurants. Other attractions are the Dushanbe Teahouse, the Boulder Creek Path, Celestial Seasonings tea tour, the Boulder Farmers’ Market (named #1 in the country by USA Today!) and much more. Boulder is also home to the University of Colorado campus, where some of the original buildings date back to 1876.
Super Duper tips: There is a lot going on in Boulder, and there is usually a fair amount of people around (which may be overwhelming for those who get overstimulated). But it is all accessible and a fun place to hang out and enjoy the afternoon!
