Fourth of July

We'll be staying in the NoBo area over the 4th. Thoughts about where to view fireworks? Can travel to outlying areas (Louisville, Erie, etc.) or willing to hike up (moderately) into the foothills for a view down into Boulder and over the plains. Thanks for all your help.

It has been a very long time since I spent the 4th in Boulder.

Panorama Point and Sunrise Amphitheater up Flagstaff Mountain are great viewing areas, but it gets very crowded and there's a fee now for cars. You can hike up though...( take a flashlight or headlamp to hike back down). www.bouldercolorado.gov/index.php…

We've also driven up to NCAR, but again it's a popular spot (or at least it was back then).

(LOL alli @non DE ;)

Head to the CU campus and watch the fireworks (do they still sing the songs??) at Folsom Field.

As of last year they still sang the songs at Folsom Field. It is a fun way to watch the fireworks. Lots of people but you can easily take the bus from North Boulder and not have to worry about parking.
