Boulder Travel Guide: 242 reviews and 333 photos

Boulder is one of America's greatest small cities. It has a population of around 100,000 people and is located about 30 miles northwest of Denver. It's main claim to fame is that it is the home of the University of Colorado, which gives it the fun atmosphere of a college town.

With the Front Range mountains at its western edge, Boulder also has some of the best scenery of any city in the US. In less than 30 minutes, you can leave Boulder and be up into the mountains for some great hiking. As a result, Boulder has some of the heathiest residents of any American city.
