Berkeley of the Rockies

Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is a busy college town known for its progressive values and natural resource conservation.
Appreciate the collections at Shelby American Collection and Boulder Arts and Crafts Gallery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Chapel on the Rock and BookCliff Vineyards. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Boulder: Rocky Mountain National Park (Calypso Cascades & Ouzel Falls). The adventure continues: trek along Mesa Trail, stroll through Anne U. White trail, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Avery Brewing Company, and look for all kinds of wild species at Humane Society of Boulder Valley.

Denver

Mile-High City

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. History Colorado Center and Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art will appeal to museum buffs. Go for a jaunt from Denver to Arvada to see Cussler Museum about 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Ballpark Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with American Museum of Western Art, contemplate the long history of Center for Colorado Women's History at the Byers-Evans House, and learn about winemaking at Balistreri Vineyards.

Venture out of the city with trips to Mueller State Park (in Divide) and Pueblo (Center for American Values, Rosemount Museum, &more).
