I will be visiting Boulder for nine days this Sept/Oct. It will be my first time ever to Colorado, I'm very excited!! What is not to be missed? I'm into: hiking, lakes, local live music, restaurants, bars, and whatever else you think I should check out while I'm there! Thanks in advance for any advice!
Well, you are visiting at the best time of year. The weather should be beautiful, but be prepared for pretty much anything. There is local hiking at Chataqua Park and Sanitas, or you can drive into the local mountains for hiking (Brainard Lake and 4th of July Trail to name two). I'd recommend that you stop in at a local outdoor shop like REI or Neptune Mountaineering to ask for suggested trails and maps. You may also like to rent a bike (University Bikes, 9th and Pearl St) and ride the miles and mile of bike path ... Pearl Street is where the action is for shopping and great restaurants. Some of my favs: Sushi Torra; Brasserie 1010 (great happy hour!); The Kitchen (gourmet organic); Aji; Frasca.. There are so many... for live music, check the schedules at The Fox Theater and The Boulder Theater. But for a real treat, catch a show at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Golden. Buy your tickets early, shows sell out fast!
Enjoy your stay,
