Out of the Box Gift Ideas for Father’s Day in Boulder, Colorado

This Father’s Day, treat Dad to an out-of-this-world adventure right here in Boulder. Gifts are great, but experiences allow you to share special moments and create lasting memories with Dad. Regardless of his style, he’ll be sure to enjoy one of these awesome Boulder experiences.

Take a Climbing Course

Colorado Mountain School offers beginner-level climbing lessons to inspire your dad’s adventurous side. Book an upcoming lesson and enjoy a full day of hands-on learning and climbing in Boulder’s world-class terrain. Your AMGA guide will teach you how to tie knots, use a belay device, repel, and climb. Dad will love experiencing Boulder in a whole new way.

Go for a Hot Air Balloon Ride

Based out of Longmont, Life Cycle Balloon Adventures flies guests to the sky for a bird’s eye view of Boulder County. Colorado’s clear, early mornings prove to be the optimal time to catch stunning panoramas of Boulder’s Flatirons (and even spot Pike’s Peak down in Colorado Springs). Once safely on the ground, toast to your adventure, and Dad, with a glass of bubbly.

Hunt for Treasure on Pearl Street

Enigma Escape Room in Boulder is unlike any other. Instead of focusing on creepy, cheap thrills that make you jump, Enigma is focused on making its guests think. A twist on your traditional escape rooms, Enigma offers “The Melton Tablets”. This mystery involves sleuthing along Pearl Street and isn’t timed, so participants can stop for a libation along the way.

Run in a Father’s Day Footrace

Kick Father’s Day off with a healthy dose of cardio. The Father’s Day Half Marathon starts in Boulder’s Central Park; racers can sign up for anything from 1 mile to the full 13.1. Run with your dad, run for your dad, or run to honor his memory and celebrate all the joys of fatherhood with other Boulder families.

Fix Up a Father’s Day Feast

Prepare a meal fit for a king this Father’s Day at Boulder’s Food Lab. Learn new culinary techniques, connect with classmates, and prepare a splendid brunch with exquisite ingredients. The first two and a half hours of class will be spent cooking, with the last half hour dedicated to sampling the fruits of your labor — cold beverage in hand.

Whether Dad is a foodie at heart or an intrepid explorer, Boulder has something to fill his special day with adventure and delight. Say thanks to him in a different way this year. Instead of a gift, give an experience that will last a lifetime.
