Chautauqua Park serves as a gathering place for community enrichment and a gateway to Colorado's natural beauty. The institution was founded around the turn of the 20th century as part of a widespread educational and cultural movement directed at rural America. Now, the complex offers lodging and accommodations, as well as food, entertainment, and event venues. At the historical dining hall, enjoy a meal with a scenic view of trees and mountains. Join a town walking tour of the facility and its associated buildings, which includes an auditorium listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Tours offered by the complex itself are also available. Be sure to book early as they fill up fast.

Absolutely love this beautiful part of Boulder Colorado. We traveled here from Chicago and have been to this area many times, and each time the local people from Boulder in Chautauqua Park went above and beyond their way to be friendly, accommodating, and cheerful. Well it is very crowded on the weekends it is absolutely worth it to spend some time in this beautiful area at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I highly recommend people be sure to bring a hat, multiple bottles of water, and plenty of Trail Mix. Be prepared for any kind of weather is storms can come over the mountains relatively quickly.
A great place to say for vacations, family reunions or weddings. Makes gathering so easy. Comfortable cabins. Great eats at the dining hall. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner on the porch - maybe even happy hour. Hike right outside your door. Amazing views. Close to town. Very convenient.
