You’ll find residents enjoying a walk down the Pearl Street Mall, an area from 11th to 15th Streets maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department. Thousands of flowers are planted every year along the mall for the locals to enjoy. And speaking of enjoyment, the University of Colorado Boulder is much more than just an excellent educational institution. It is a hub for the community and offers many outreach programs and classes, community work projects, and a food pantry. Boulder residents tend to be active and involved in their community, and the Boulder County Farmers Market is the place to meet up with friends and get the latest news and freshest produce. Known as “Boulder’s most iconic landmark,” the Flatirons are sandstone formations on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Here you’ll find outdoor adventures with hiking trails, rock climbing, and picnicking.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
For a hipster coffeehouse experience with live music and sweet nothings to nibble on, residents make a beeline for The Laughing Goat. Stroll the city streets and enjoy afternoon tea and some Japanese Chicken Karaage at the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse. For sublime Italian food and an extensive wine list, head over to Frasca Food and Wine, and make sure you try the Salmon with Farro Verde.
The Boulder Book Store is a favorite place to visit on an afternoon outing for its many books, unique gifts, poetry and book clubs, and author signings.
