If you’re taking precautions for COVID-19 or would simply prefer to stay home (or nearby) this spring break, living in Boulder makes it easy to enjoy spring break right here in town. On the search for experiences that will make this spring break special? Here are a few ideas to inspire your planning:
Book a Room at the St Julien
Whether you’re new to Boulder or have lived here for years, staying at the St Julien Hotel and Spa may be on your to-do list. If you’ve always wanted to experience what’s widely regarded as Boulder’s premier hotel but haven’t had a chance, spring break offers the perfect opportunity. The views and amenities are excellent, and who doesn’t love a full-service, on-site spa? When you’re looking for a little taste of home-away-from-home, a few days at St Julien won’t disappoint.
Enjoy a Show at the Dairy Arts Center
If life’s been keeping you busy, spring break will provide an opportunity to pause and enjoy the arts. There’s always something special going on at the Dairy Arts Center, from lighthearted Comedy Works performances to thought-provoking cinema (and so much more). The March calendar is still shaping up, so be sure to check back here for the schedule.
Schedule an In-Home Massage
Not feeling up to leaving the comfort of home? Indulge in some much-needed relaxation by scheduling an in-home massage from one of Boulder’s highly-qualified therapists. There are several excellent mobile therapists in our city who provide the same level of service that you’d expect in a studio from the safety and security of your own home.
Purchase a Take-Home Kit From Food Lab
Interested in sharpening your culinary skills? A class at Food Lab is the way to go. Although in-person courses are a popular offering at Food Lab, this cooking school also offers convenient take-home kits. In addition to all the ingredients you’ll need to make an incredible dinner, you’ll be able to follow along with a video of the Food Lab chefs as they guide you through each step.
Explore Boulder By Air
Even longtime Boulder residents can enjoy a fresh take on our city’s beauty by booking an aerial tour. Views of the Indian Peaks are awesome from the ground, but soaring over the landscape offers a new perspective. Two-person flights are available with a multitude of itineraries, or you can create a customized route for you and your partner to explore your favorite spots from on high.
