Top 5 Things To Do In & Around Boulder, CO
Boulder rocks! We spent a week there this summer and wanted to share with you the top 5 things we did while we were there.
1. Rock Climbing, Swimming, & Hiking in Eldorado Canyon
Our friend lives right in the canyon, so we had access to everything! We went for a beautiful hike, did some outdoor climbing, and also took a dip in the community pool! Pack a lunch and some snacks and spend a day in Eldorado Canyon.
2. Farmer's Market
The Farmer's Market takes place on Wednesdays 4-8pm & Saturdays 8-2pm on the corner of 13th Street between Arapahoe & Canyon. It is such a fun scene! There is live music, good eats, tasty samples, and unique locally made products!
Okay, so we pretty much can't go anywhere for a week without eating some Mexican food. We are so spoiled here in San Diego with some of the best, most authentic Mexican food, but honestly, Cafe Mexicali definitely met our standards. The Shredded Beef Nachos were SO GOOD and great to share with the whole table. We got a little margarita happy too, because they were so tasty.
4. Hiking in Chautauqua Park & the Flatirons
Exploring the nature in Chautauqua Park and the Flatirons was easily the highlight of our trip. You can just hike forever and forever and happen upon more beauty everywhere you look. Definitely make these two places a priority on your visit.
5. Take a stroll on Pearl Street
Pearl Street can get a little touristy, but it is something to see! There are a bunch of cool shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, and more. There's often local musicians posted up, playing tunes to passerbys and street performers doing there thing too. TIP: Enjoy some Ben & Jerry's ice cream while you stroll along.
