This was exactly what I wanted on my first trip to Boulder, Lori gave us a great opportunity to hear about the history but mixed it in with the spirit of local ownership and foresightedness of the original and current inhabitants. While we stuck to the approximately 2 mile loop that was promised on the tour there were plenty of suggestions on other places to visit and I did that after the tour. What I really loved was that there were Boulder residents on the tour, it was manageable enough with only 6 of us. It was almost 100 degrees but we kept to the shade and time flew. Lori had a great balance of history, architecture, concern about the heat and engaging folks with each other that made her seem like a long time friend. I had originally signed up for an afternoon tour, Lori let me know I was only one signed up and asked if I wanted to come to the am one. I could easily do that so headed from Denver to Boulder hitting some constrcution that delayed me. Group was wonderful about taking first few minutes slow and waited the extra 8 - 10 minutes for me. There is parking available everywhere. The fee is norminal and coming from Chicago a real bargain. I moved the car a block after 3 hours and actually found street free parking . It was a magical day in Boulder and sparked enough interest for me to return .
