  • Quick, beautiful views of Boulder and surrounding mountains. Could get tricky as to whether going to the summit or “top-top.” Very touristy and many professional photography sessions taking place. Many bike riders and winding roads.
  • You can pretty much drive to the summit.
  • This is worth going to. Nice solitude a f views from here.
  • Gorgeous.... just gorgeous
  • Great simple hiking.

Where to stay in Boulder

You'll find most of the pricier and more luxurious accommodations in downtown Boulder, but the city offers hotel rooms suitable for every traveler's budget. Stay in the heart of the city if you want quick access to shops and restaurants, but if you're traveling on a limited budget, consider a good value inn a short walk or bicycle ride from downtown. You can also choose to stay in Denver for a wider selection of economical hotels and motels; it's just 30 minutes southeast of Boulder.
