Amazing views of the Flatirons, and a large network of hiking trails. Go here for a hike and finish with a refuel at the on-site Chautauqua Dining Hall for some of the best food in town. It's like dining at a historic lodge, with porch dining available. Chautauqua Park History Chautauqua Park is a portion of an iconic historic landmark dating back to when the City of Boulder began preserving wild lands over 100 years ago. In 1898, Boulder residents approved a bond issue to purchase 80 acres to be used as a “Chautauqua”. The park land owned by Boulder Parks and Recreation is located adjacent to OSMP trails, Chautauqua Dining Hall and Auditorium, and Chautauqua Ranger Cottage and provides a playground, tennis courts, and open turf. Nature Play Opportunities Chautauqua Park provides families with access to Open Space Mountain Park trails, which have a wide range of opportunities for children’s unstructured interaction with nature. In the park itself, children are found playing freely on the open turf and along the park’s edges, with an iconic view of the Flatirons.

A short hike with a lot of bang for your buck! From The People's Crossing parking area, take this trail up to some red rock spires that will temporarily transport you to feel like you are in Sedona, Arizona with views overlooking Boulder. From here, you can either return back to the trailhead, or you can continue to connect it with other hikes: Anemone Trail (a beautiful hike in a pine forest), Sanitas Valley Trail, or Mount Sanitas. Located adjacent to the West Pearl and Mapleton Hill neighborhoods.

Neighborhoods

Take a walk or drive through Boulder's turn of the century historic home district, reminiscent of Norman Rockwell. Large, old stately homes with equally impressive porches, on tree-lined streets. Extra beautiful with October fall colors. It is also home to the annual Mapleton Hill Porchfest in mid-September, where residents volunteer their porches out for talented musicians to use as stages. Imagine multiple concerts going on all at once. Anything from bluegrass to acoustic songwriters to opera.

Sightseeing

Boulder's eccentric brick pedestrian mall with shopping, artist coops, galleries, busker performers, and food to die for. The brick planters are full of flowers during the warm months, but the tulips in April are extra special.
