Outside of Boulder

If you have a day or two to spend in the area, here are some popular tourist spots

Peak to Peak Highway from blackhawk (about 35 minutes from boulder) to Estes Park. It is easy to spend a day shopping in Estes Park.

Red Rocks-- home of the famous outdoor amphitheater.


Summit County is the mountain playground for people from Denver and you can do any possible outdoor activity there in spectacular settings.... hike, bike, sail, horseback ride, golf, etc. This is due east from denver on I-70. It's about 1 hour and 40 minutes from Boulder. Spend the day either in the charming towns (Frisco old west, Breckenridge more victorian old west). If you can spend time in this area, there are fabulous hikes -- especially for those who like wildflowers. One favorite of the Center for Research on Consumers' Financial Decision Making is Shrine Mountain Pass. Go from Summit County west on I-70 to Vail Pass, get off and drive on dirt road to Shrine Mountain. Hike (about 2 hours, not too strenuous) to incredible overlook of shrine mountain, spectacular wildflowers that time of year. It is critical to get an early start in the morning. In that part of the state, mornings are always crystal clear blue sky days and afternoons are prone to early thundershowers.

Denver . If you are interested in more civilized stuff rather than all outdoorsy, in Denver itself, the Denver Art Museum is good and has a King Tut exhibit starting July 1, the Denver museum of Nature and Science is also quite good.
