Colorado - Boulder & Around (PDF Chapter)
This is the Boulder & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Colorado guide-book.
Twenty-five square miles surrounded by reality. That’s the joke about Boulder that never goes away. The weather is perfect, the surroundings – stone Flatirons, gurgling creek, ponderosa trails and manicured college campus – beg idling.
- coast on two wheels from one end of town to the other on the leafy Boulder Creek Bike Path
- hike Chautauqua Park’s scenic trails alongside the iconic Flatirons and taking in a concert afterward
- tube through town on a hot summer day along Boulder Creek
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Boulder, Nederland.
