Boulder is a beautiful city in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, just 30 minutes northwest of Denver, “where the Rocky Mountains meet the plains.” It is a spiritual place, with Naropa University, which was founded by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and many Rinpoches having visited from different traditions. Boulder is also home to hundreds of Tibetans.
A short distance from the University of Colorado campus, you can walk in nature along the Boulder Creek path, or enjoy the lively and popular Pearl Street Mall, just a mile away, with its local breweries, amazing food scene, and public art, fountains and sculptures. You might even catch some incredible street performers.
Here are some of the activities you can find in and around Boulder.
