Red Tulips at Chautauqua Park

You don't need this year's solstice — Saturday, June 20 — to tell that summer has arrived in Boulder. With flowers blooming, the average temperature has been a warm 89 degrees over the past two weeks.

Restaurants on The Hill and Pearl Street have utilized the nice weather to open into expanded outdoor seating in parking lots and closed-off streets. And while summer classes are fully remote this year, campus is still as beautiful as ever with its welcoming greenery, calming open spaces and full trees. Walk over the bridge at Varsity Lake and you’ll even spot some sun-bathing turtles.
