How to Spend 24 Hours in Boulder with Your Guests

Boulder offers an array of indoor and outdoor activities, but we know not everyone has an extended stay. If your guests are on a tight schedule, here’s how we would recommend spending 24 hours in Boulder.

We’ve kept our choices close to Peloton West, so you can spend more time exploring and less time driving. (Although driving through Colorado in any season can be beautiful!)

Begin with a Local Coffee Shop

Before hitting the trails, get your caffeine in at one of Boulder’s many great coffee shops. Boxcar Coffee Roasters is located on Pearl Street, and while it shares its space with Cured, a deli, don’t let that keep you from coming in.

They offer freshly roasted coffee and espresso drinks, as well as artisanal pastries that you need to try.

Hike Mesa Trail

Living near the Flatirons has its perks, especially when it comes to hiking. Whether you’re up for a strenuous hike or want to spend the morning on a moderate trail before exploring downtown Boulder, there are options for you and your guests!

For experienced hikers, we’d recommend Mesa Trail. It’s just over 7 miles, and will take two to three hours. The perfect length before heading back into town for more exploring. Even better? It’s only 15 minutes away from Peloton West!

Play a Round of Disc Golf

The Boulder area offers a number of disc golf courses, and it’s an excellent way to enjoy the fresh fall air. Pack some snacks and your discs, and explore Valmont Disc Park or Harlow Platts Park.

Both are a quick drive away from Peloton West, and we think it’s just the right way to spend an afternoon with your guests.

Dinner & Drinks at Basta

We love our restaurant neighbors Basta, and it should definitely be on your list for 24 hours in Boulder. After a day full of exploring, stick close to home with dinner and drinks at a locally owned restaurant with a delicious menu.

Regardless of entree, make sure you try their Heirloom Focaccia bread as an appetizer!

Even though 24 hours in Boulder isn’t enough time to explore everything this wonderful city has to offer, you can definitely give your guests a taste. Starting with coffee and a hiking adventure and winding down with dinner and drinks, we’re sure your friends and family will love their stay.
