And the jewel in Boulder's crown is the exquisite Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse, handcrafted in Tajikistan City, and covered floor to ceiling with awe-inspiringly vibrant mosaics.

Where to stay

Sample the high-quality restaurants serving locally-grown valley cuisine that's earned Boulder the enviable accolade of "America's foodiest town." However, many visitors will also opt to stay next to Boulder's world-renowned University of Colorado, with its picturesque, leafy campus, offering gorgeous walks beneath the trees. Business travelers will especially appreciate the convenient conference facilities on site. And then there's the majestic Rocky Mountains themselves – so don't forget your hiking boots.

Things to see

With Boulder being right at the foot of the Rockies, and boasting almost year-round sunshine, outdoor activities are extremely popular, including hiking and rock climbing across the mesmerizing Flatirons at Open Space Mountain Parks. You'll find Boulder is a seductively cycle-friendly city, so grab yourself a bike to pop between the gorgeous university campus and lively downtown area. Visit the historic art deco and neon facade of the Boulder Theater, which has been wowing residents and visitors since 1906, and boasts a stellar program, from big-name acts to local favorites. If you fancy learning more about Boulder's gold rush and ghost tale history, jump on Banjo Billy's Bus Tour for a fascinating delve into the city's legend. And when on the Colorado campus, don't miss the architectural feasts of the original school building dating from 1876, or the grand Mary Rippon Theater, home to the summer's annual Colorado Shakespeare Festival.
