Locale and Weather

November weather in Boulder is often sunny with highs in the 30s or 40s, but it could be rainy with highs in the 50s or snowy with highs in the 10s or 20s. Check your weather app! We say no more. 

If you have extra time, we recommend the Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall, which has plenty of cafes and the wonderful locally owned Boulder Bookstore, and hikes around the iconic flatirons or other open space trails (https://bouldercolorado.gov/osmp/basic-trail-information).

Boulder is above 5000 feet. Bring a water bottle and drink plenty of water to avoid altitude sickness. Use sunscreen if you are out in the sun.
