Boulder, Colorado is a quaint town equipped with all your outdoor needs!  Just 40 minutes from Denver this eclectic, liberal town offers hiking, biking, and a small town feel.  Be sure to walk down Pearl Street and stroll through the local shops as well as exploring one of the many hiking trails around the city.

Pizzeria Locale– Fresh ingredients, contemporary/funky vibe, great service!

The fantastic thing about Boulder is all the outdoor activity…year-round!  I visited in January not expecting to find many people on the trails or shopping in the downtown area but this community is vibrant and very active all year long.  The people we came across on the trails were incredibly friendly and the musicians who line Pearl Street are incredibly talented individuals.

If you’re looking for a funky, eclectic, small liberal city this is the place for you.  It also helps if you’ve recently won the lottery as this city isn’t for those in search of a community known for a low cost of living.
