Sightseeing

16th Street Mall is our downtown open air mall and besides the great open to the street restaurants, it's just a great place to people watch. It's also an avenue away from the theatre.

Pearl street is the iconic closed street mall with mostly local curios shops, trendy restaurants and college hangouts. You will usually find street performers here on the mall in the spring, summer and fall weekends. Our favorite spot and reason to walk to the end of the mall - Spruce Confections...my fav is the Old B Cookies...767 Pearl St, Boulder, CO 80302

Food Scene

BREAKFAST - this eaterly started here in Denver and is slowly expanding to other states. The menu is the best breakfast in town, with names of dishes such as Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes, OMG! French Toast, Chili Verde Benedict and Juan’s Breakfast Tacos. You can't miss at Snooze, also you'll find there are 4-5 other locations all around town so if you don't hit the one near our AirBNB then you can plan to visit the Boulder, Denver or other locations. IMPORTANT - show up early as the place gets packed around 9 am on weekends, however weekdays you'll get a table within reasonable time.

Red rocks attracts the most iconic groups from all over the world. GET YOUR TICKETS EARLY before you arrive, months before if your favorite act is hot. You cannot compare an evening in the open amphitheatre listening to REM, U2 or the Grateful Dead which all played here. Today you might more enjoy Flosstradamaus, Modest Mouse, Widespread Panic, The Avett Brothers and my FAV Ray Lamontagne, all PLAYING SUMMER 2018 and not sold out yet as of May 2018.
