Visitors will be delighted to discover that Boulder and the surrounding area offers activities for every interest. Photographers, music lovers, rock climbers, Olympians, artists, and others flock to this great city because of its scenic beauty, vibrant culture, and fabulous amenities. Boulder is just three hours from 11 ski resorts, 40 minutes from Denver, and just moments from 43,000 acres of open space and trails. But with about 90,000 residents, there's plenty to do inside the city limits. On sunny afternoons, the Pearl Street Mall in downtown Boulder bustles with street performers and shoppers, while the Boulder Campus teems with students playing Frisbee and relaxing in the shade. We invite you to explore this great community.
