Boulder Area Special Attractions

Boulder

Boulder is set amongst the stunningly beautiful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains and the vaulted, red rock slates of the Flatirons. Boulder residents can enjoy the natural surroundings in many ways. There is abundant land set aside and impeccably maintained for outdoor activities such as hiking, rock climbing, river rafting, off-road bicycling, and skiing. Fine restaurants and international fare are found easily throughout Boulder, from Jax Fish House, voted the top seafood restaurant in the Rocky Mountain Area, to Q's Restaurant in the Hotel Boulderado, one of Colorado's finest restaurants. For shopping, the pedestrian-only Pearl Street Mall, located in downtown Boulder, provides ample opportunities for shopping in the unique boutiques of the area, strolling through the many fine art galleries, or relaxing in the bistros and coffee houses. The University of Colorado is located just south of downtown, where you can find the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, as well as many other arts and music events sponsored by the school.

Louisville blends the old and the new. On its main street you can find some family restaurants and stores plus an historical museum. The Jacoe Store is full of artifacts of the mining days: photographs, coal mining equipment, and stories of the past. In downtown Louisville you can also find Memorial Square Park, with a public swimming pool and art gallery. Other recreational opportunities in the area include the Coal Creek Golf Course, just outside of town, and miles of country roads for cycling. The community also hosts a "Taste of Louisville" in mid-June and an annual Labor Day parade. Louisville's excellent location, just 20 miles from Denver and 10 miles from Boulder, also allow its residents to enjoy all the arts, music, recreational, fine dining, and shopping opportunities in those larger cities.
