6 Fun Things to Do in Boulder, Colorado

Whether you're just passing through on a visit or are an actual resident, Boulder offers a truly delightful, unique experience for all.

Whether your taste is for the luxurious or the thrill of an adventure appeals more, you're sure to find something to tantalize your delicate tastes.

Without further ado, I present to you a list of six fun activities to do in Boulder.

Hiking on Flagstaff Mountain

Hiking is a way to sweat off excess calories and build fitness and stamina. The Flagstaff Mountain trail lies between the mountain summit and Flagstaff Road. It is a 2.1-mile trail guaranteed to provide you with a scenic view of the landscape and its rich wildlife.

Also, it has just the right steepness in incline to make your heart thud faster and strain your lungs to their limits, depending on the pace of your hike.

Additionally, large boulders to either side of the trail provide opportunities for bouldering.

Go shopping in the Pearl Street Mall

If shopping and sightseeing in a mall is your thing, you're bound to enjoy the fine sights in the Pearl Street Mall.

The Mall is Boulder's hub for shopping, dining, arts, and of course, people-watching! Even if you don't have plans to actually shop in any of the fancy outlets, you can have a great time watching the busy stream of people going about their business in the Mall.

Taste a variety of beers

Beer is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages around. With nearby Denver having a solid reputation for microbreweries, it's only natural that nearby Boulder isn't slouching as well.

Boulder has over 20 breweries, so you can delight your taste buds with various great-tasting beers, including pale and stout ales.

Enjoy delightful tea from the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory

There are various kinds of beverages, of which beer is but one. If you're not the type for heady beverages and prefer tea, the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory is a must-visit for you.

Established in 1969, the tea factory manufactures and ships nearly 10 million teabags daily, with the brand gaining global renown.

The factory is free-to-visit, and you'll taste delicious teas in various flavors, even getting discounts while at it!

Visit the NCAR

Leisure and entertainment aren't the only things to enjoy in Boulder. If you're of a keen mind, taking delight in expanding your bounds of knowledge, you'll find the NCAR a perfect place to visit.

The NCAR stands for the National Center for Atmospheric Research. It's a research center populated by geeky scientists preoccupied with studying various weather and climate-related phenomena like ozone layer depletion.

Touring the center is free, and you can be guaranteed an eye-opening, educative session with the meteorologists who'll only be too glad to share their knowledge with you.

Optimizing the tour are hands-on displays and sights of various weather instruments that'll bring the theories to life, providing you with an all-round educational experience in the field.

Visit the Chautauqua Park

If you aren't inclined to leave the metropolis for nature's wondrous sights, Chautauqua Park has everything you need.

The vistas and views are truly awesome, while the dining area provides a fine culmination to the nature tour.

Even better, parking is free!

Boulder is one of the best places in the USA to live, and it would be a shame to only enjoy these wonderful experiences on the rare occasion you visit.
