The food court there is a very busy place, especially on the weekend. The food was tasty and very convenient when you need to keep shopping! :)

You shouldn't miss the Flatirons if you are traveling near Boulder, CO. They are beautiful. They have great trails to hike, with great views at the top and on the way up. We saw several bears near the path on the way up and enjoyed watching them play. There were also Bald Eagles soaring through the air and monitoring the... More

Awesome hikes even for an experienced hiker like myself! Went in the summer and it was perfect! It gets chilly the higher you go up so def bring a long sleeve to layer on when you get to the higher areas. It was my first "real" hike and i really enjoyed it. The view from the top is incredible and... More

Love this place and try to hike at least once or twice a week! You really can't get a better view of Colorado..it feels like you are whisked away to Europe!!! And you're getting exercise at the same time!!! Afterwards, head over to The Rio for margarita's!!! Ha

Heavy snow 2days ago and much more fun and beautiful. If u stay in Colorado, you should go for fun. You will like it if you don't expect great U.S National park. Small but exciting. 3-5hrs. Enjoy trip!

The Boulder Flatirons are a Must SEE! They are truly beautiful in any season! You can just stop and take photos or do a hike! All Ages will enjoy this stop and if you have time plan a picnic in the park adjacent to the Flatirons! There is a Ranger station where you can stop and get information, plus see... More

Visited the area New Year's Day. Lot of sledder's on the hills. Beautiful scenery in the winter. A must see hike around the area. Take Flagstaff road to the top while you're here as well and look out over Boulder.

I went in Jan. 2015 and it was beautiful. It was about dusk and a little cloudy but still beautiful. There were a few people bundled up walking up the trails in the snow. Afterwards, we went to the Pearl street mall and the Christmas lights were so beautiful. In the winter, plan to stay an hour or so on... More
