Welcome to Boulder

Boulder’s mad love of the outdoors was officially legislated in 1967, when it became the first US city to tax itself specifically to preserve open space. Thanks to such vision, people (and dogs) enjoy a number of city parks and open spaces while packs of cyclists whip up and down the Boulder Creek corridor.

For travelers looking for an outdoorsy holiday with the cultural outlets of an urban oasis – gourmet restaurants, lively bars, concerts and theater – Boulder is where it's at.
