    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Boulder is a beautiful picture postcard of CO. It sits in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains about 30 miles northwest of Denver on Hwy 36. Boulder has over 300 day of sunshine a year. It is the home of the University of Colorado’s main campus. Boulder has the only accredited Buddhist–inspired university: the Naropa University.

    The city sits at over 5000' above sea level and has a greenbelt that loops the city. Boulder is a place for the outdoor enthusiast with many hiking and bike trails. The impressive drive up Baseline Road takes you to Lookout Mountain. This place is a favorite for the young and the old. It is a steep and winding road with bicyclists touring it at all hours of the day. There is a well maintained picnic area, a first class restaurant, great hiking trails and impressive views of the city and surrounding area. You can even see Denver from there.

    Pearl Street Mall is a beautiful walking Mall which gives you the opportunity to experience the variety Boulder has to offer in its quaint shops and good restaurants. Boulder boasts that they “walk the talk” when it comes to alternative transportation. You can drive but many prefer to walk or ride bikes.

    Looking West from anywhere in the city, you will see the National Center for Atmospheric Research. It does just what its name says: research.

    Boulder has a very nice downtown with parks and tree lined streets, many festivals and activities take place year round.

    • Denver
      Cleverly nicknamed as ‘Mile High City’ (Denver does in fact sit exactly one mile above sea level), and backed by the kind of mountain range that instantly justifies the arty name, Denver arguably has one main draw: clear air, and the chance to sneak off into the Colorado Rockys for a quick bit of hill walking, skiing or rock climbing at next to no notice.

      The overbearing draw of the mountains, though unmissable, should not be allowed to totally overshadow the city itself, though. Denver is heavy on the cultural side of things, with museums and galleries galore to explore downtown, including gems like an exploration of the city’s gold rush era at the Molly Brown House and Museum, or an abundance of public art tucked away in locations like the Civic Centre Park.

      LoDo – also the district that’s home to Denver’s passion-inducing baseball team – is perhaps the must-see district, hiding draws like block upon block of beautifully renovated Victorian architecture, as well as a sport themed bar scene and the heart of Denver’s array of restaurants (if you have the chance, order a Rocky Mountain Oyster, though not without looking up what that means, first!). If you’re the fashionable type, nearby Larimer Square will draw you in, too, with endless branded boutiques, as well as a beautiful winter vibe accentuated by the gentle lighting. Fashionable, but inevitable pricey with it.

      It wouldn’t be right to visit Denver without at least dabbling in the old Cowboy era relics, such as Buffalo Bill’s grave at the top of Lookout Mountain, from where you can see plenty of his old frontiers before heading to the Bill themed museum, too. In it you’ll find bows and arrows, early shooters and an insightful glance into the heart of Buffalo Bills bizarre and celebrated life.

      Even if you’re here for the mountains, then, there’s plenty to justify a day or two hanging out in Mile High City and taking in the sense of enduring history that seems to come with a place with a truly special backdrop.

    • Estes Park
      Estes Park is much more than a small, quaint touristy town, just outside of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Even though the streets are lined with gift and souvenir shops, ice cream parlors, and places to eat there is so much more to see. Every year they have hundreds of elk come into town to mate and the Aspen starting to change colors in late September. The world renowned Stanley hotel is also located here where Steven King gained inspiration for "The Shining". Most still say this is one of the most haunted hotels in Colorado.
