Boulder is a beautiful city 30 miles outside of Denver, CO that is easily accessible by Uber for around $30-35 one way. We had four people in our car, so the per person split was worth it instead of taking a bus or renting a car for just a day trip. Since most of our trips are centered around good food, being active and shopping for things local to the area, we had a great time. We were able to do all that in Boulder in just one day.
Read below for our itinerary.
Depart Denver at 11am
First stop was the Farmer’s Market for local good and lunch
Beautiful day for shopping outdoors
Delicious ice cream at Fior Di Latte. A lady in line said it was the best gelato in CO! It was delicious
There was a park right next to the market where you can sit out on the grass and enjoy your lunch
After lunch, we took a quick 10 minute Uber ride to Chautauqua Park for some hiking
Tip- Make sure to tell the driver to drop you off at the Ranger Cottage. This is the start of all the trails
Next, stop by Pearl Street Mall for shopping, breweries, street art, good food and performers. There is so much to see and do at this outdoor mall. It was the perfect cap to our day in Boulder
We really enjoyed Boulder because it has a laid back vibe in a small town with plenty to do.
