Top 5 Things To Do in Boulder, Colorado

Whether you’re looking to visit Boulder, you recently relocated to our beautiful town, or you’re a lifelong resident, there’s a ton of exciting attractions and experiences to take advantage of within our city limits. 

From our beautiful natural scenery to enjoying a famous Boulder brew on Pearl Street, you’ll truly never be bored in Boulder! 

Read on for our top 5 favorite things to do in the area.

1. Grab a Brew and Hit the Bike Path

What do you get when you combine two of Boulder’s most popular pastimes, drinking craft beer and biking? A bike and beer tour of Boulder’s famed breweries, of course!

You can choose to book a tour through a company like Beer & Bike Tours, or simply take advantage of Boulder’s public B-cycle bike-sharing program and design your own brewery path. Here’s a great resource to get you started.

Note: many guided tour companies have suspended their in-person operations right now due to COVID-19, but many companies are offering packages for self-guided Bikes and Beers tours.

2. Enjoy the Outdoors at Chautauqua Park

A list of things to do in Boulder wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Chautauqua Park. Ask any local where you should go to soak in Boulder’s famed natural scenery, and chances are they’ll point you in this direction. 

The number one thing to do at Chautauqua Park? Hike! A huge network of trails connects the park, and no matter your skill level, you’ll be able to choose the perfect outdoor adventure for you. 

If hiking is not your style, throw a frisbee around with friends, take a self-guided history tour, or sprawl out on a blanket and have a picnic. No matter what you choose to do, the views will be truly unbeatable.

3. Shop ‘til You Drop at Pearl Street 

Looking to get some retail therapy in and eat some delicious food? Pearl Street is the place to be. 

Take a stroll along the beautifully kept outdoors mall and enjoy local art galleries, restaurants, and mom and pop shops selling jewelry to books and everything in between. There are also some big-name shops along the street, like North Face and Urban Outfitters.
