If you love baked goods, do not miss Babette’s. Be aware there is often a short line on Saturday mornings. Babettes is the home of epicureous eaters led by husband and wife team Catherine and Steve Scott. Steve is the mad-scientist maestro, adjusting weights and measurements in search of the most delightful flavors. An architect by training, Catherine runs the numbers and comes with a complimentary approach to Steve in guiding the business as a couple. Along with their passionate staff, they are committed to making great-tasting food. They start with high-quality ingredients and fine tune their recipes, by responding to feel, look, and smell of what's cooking. After all, external factors such as humidity and temperature impact the foods. Being gastronomic explorers means they are constantly updating the menu, implementing new items based on seasonality as well as ideas picked up from their travels around the world. For the few customers who struggle with the math of this, Steve suggests that if you like one item, chances are you'll like the other items as well.

Essentials

Grocery Stores, Pharmacies, Liquor Stores
Great prices on produce. Sprouts is kinda similar to Trader Joes if you have never been to one - lots of own brand items for a price that won't have you spending your whole paycheck. You can get groceries delivered from sprouts thru instacart.

Walking distance from The White House. This is by far, Boulder County's #1 gym - the best equipment you will find. It is NOT crowded! Go to their website and email them for a day pass. It is keypad entry only. If you go during the day, the owner is usually there, but you will have to knock on the door to get someone to let you in.

While most people don't come to land locked Colorado for its bodies of water, Carter lake is a good choice where you can rent a sailboat or take a kayak or stand-up paddleboard. There is also a swimming beach.

Take the Brew Hop Trolley for a day of tasting!

A second generation Longmont native and beer enthusiast, David Lewis and his wife Radha, set out to connect the community and visitors to the bustling brewery, cidery and distillery scene in his Colorado hometown. In 2016, they bought their first trolley, Dennis Hopper, and started looping around town with their Hop-on + Hop-off trolley route which visits all the local tasting rooms. https://brewhoptrolley.com/
