For those who are seeking added intel on backcountry climbs, skis, or hikes, this is one of the most glorious ways to scout new terrain. Book a flight here.
Zen Out with a Spa Day
Boulder boasts some truly incredible spas and wellness centers. Make it part of your New Years’ resolution to treat yourself to a lavish spa day, complete with a facial, massage, or even a body wrap. Self-care is important and so is supporting Boulder’s businesses, like the wonderful Dragontree Spa or the cozy Woodhouse Spa. Splurging on a little rest and relaxation for yourself is always a good investment.
Boulder and its surrounding mountain towns, like Gold Hill, Nederland, and Jamestown offer some sophisticated glamping options that don’t require a tent. Rent a charming, rustic cabin or plan a cross-country ski adventure from the canvas of a cozy yurt. We’re gifted with this incredible mountain terrain right in our backyards…what better way to enjoy it than hunkering down next to a wood stove while taking in the picturesque view from a cute, woodsy cabin?
Dine on Delectable Cuisine, Farmside
If you haven’t yet had the chance to enjoy dinner at one of Boulder’s local farms, don’t let another summer pass without reserving a spot at the table. Many farms, like Black Cat Organic Farm or Ollin Farms, offer different farm-to-table dinner options all growing season. Rub elbows with other Boulderites who value fresh, locally-grown foods while taking in the natural beauty that Colorado has to offer.
For around $100 a person, Beyond Boulder Bikes will take you and your crew on an awesome two-wheeled tour of our magical city. They offer multiple packages, like Bike ‘n Brew Cruise or Panorama Bike ‘n Hike, that give guests a totally new view of Boulder. A perfect activity to entertain out-of-town guests and experience Boulder in a new way, Beyond Boulder Bikes should definitely make your 2022 bucket list.
