CU Boulder: A Learning Landmark: This fun and informative stroll through the award-winning CU-Boulder campus offers a thorough exploration of today's dynamic university, but rooted in background from yesteryear. The first building, opened in 1876, sat atop a donated, treeless bluff, its bell tower ringing the vision that spurred “Old Main” and, indeed, the town of Boulder itself. Since then, the campus has expanded in significance ~ architecturally, intellectually, and civically. Come wander, and wonder, with us! « less

Go walk about in this delightful pedestrian mall. Explore shops and galleries. See street performers. Have a bite to eat. A great little break for the tourist.

I have especially hiked into the Chautauqua Natural Park - a quiet and a 5700 feet high tracking opportunity. It is best to take hiking rather soon in the morning because heat and dry air are really giving a hard time for non trained persons. Further I have visited the center of Boulder which is a pleasant thing to do.

Although this was our second trip to Boulder, it was an interesting and informative tour of downtown Boulder regarding the history of the town and its various buildings. We did a 10 a.m. tour (in case it rained in the afternoon) and it was a beautiful day for walking. We started outside of the Boulderado Hotel (this is the bathroom... More

My partner and I were on a weekend trip and didn't know much about Boulder. We wanted to get to know the place quickly and see some of the sights downtown. This was the absolute best thing we could have done! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We learned about Boulder's history, the culture, and the community. We... More

Excellent tour with 10 others and our guide, Lori. Like me, there were 4 other locals on the tour and then folks from out of State. I learned plenty of cool details and facts about my home town. I highly recommend for both visitors and locals to learn about Boulder Colorado.

What a wonderful tour. Our guide Lori was so knowledgeable, and passionate about Chautauqua and it's impact on Boulder. She brought the tour to life with images of the early days, the people who built it and the people who keep it going today. This is one of the best outings ever.

I moved to Colorado a few years ago and even went to school in Boulder but never really knew much. I was enamored with the exciting history that was all around me and that I never knew. There is a reason there are all 5 star reviews. Do it!

We did a walking tour of Boulder with Lori, just a couple weeks after all the flooding. Lori is an incredibly engaging, personable, dynamic, and knowledgeable guide. She made me completely fall in love with Boulder, for all the right reasons. Lori gave informative background on the history of the city, plus filled it in with all the bits of... More
