Summer in Boulder: 5 Ways to Beat the Heat

May 31st, 2016

Although Colorado’s April snow showers and chilly May days make warm summer weather seems highly improbable, the heat is on its way. With this weekend’s forecast hovering in the 80s, it’s a perfect time to take advantage of Boulder’s many swimming destinations. Whether you’d prefer to keep cool in the pool or make a water adventure out of the day, Boulder has something for you. Scott Carpenter Pool Located in central Boulder, Scott Carpenter Pool is a great place for a low-key pool day. Home to Boulder’s only 50 meter pool, you can get in a great workout and recover with a nice... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

July 16th, 2015

  Meet Alex! She is a sophomore at CU Boulder and spent the day tubing down the creek! After all the heavy rain in the early summer, the water has finally slowed down enough to float down! Although Alex says the water is still very, very cold. Even though it was a sunny day, she never totally got used to the water temperature and was trying her best not to flip over in the rapids. However, it didn’t work and she was fully dunked under a few times! Alex chose Boulder because of its beautiful campus and all the fun outdoor activities and is happy the weather is getting nice enough to... Read More

The Bubble and Beyond

May 27th, 2015

Boulder is a city and county of many parts. Anyone who lives or visits here can’t help noticing. Within an hour’s drive of downtown you can find everything from hamlets nestled into pine-covered foothills to municipalities threading cottonwood traces, from the pristine vistas of Rocky Mountain National Park to the anchor of the Great Plains spreading eastward. Given that variation, it’s no surprise a host of interests come into play. Businesses—from national corporations to one-off boutiques—have made their home in the region. Industries as diverse as aerospace and recreation find a... Read More

The Best 11 Activities to Do During Boulder Winters

January 14th, 2015

Winter gets cold in Boulder. It can be hard to bundle up and get out of the house, but the winter temperature should be no excuse. There’s lots of great activities to do in Boulder (even when it’s freezing outside), and that’s why this list has been assembled. Let’s get started. 1. See a Great Concert. Boulder has a fantastic music scene, partially because of its two incredible venues. The Fox Theater is a great, central venue to see concerts. It’s local, it hosts some incredible artists, and it’s got great personality. The Boulder Theater (pictured above) is... Read More

Check Out Boulder Canyon’s New Color Pallette

October 8th, 2014

For anyone who’s been sitting under a rock, the Colorado greenery is slowly turning into reds and oranges and yellows. It’s a prime time to explore the outdoors, and with the weather being so temperate, there couldn’t be a better time to hike a few more trails before it gets too chilly. I biked up Boulder Canyon last weekend, and the beautiful colored trees made it a real treat. The Boulder Canyon trail can be accessed by traveling west on the Boulder Creek path. It goes along the highway for a short period, but then it starts following alongside a beautiful river. In fact,... Read More

Pay-it-Forward-Friday: A Legendary Inner Tubing Expedition, No Cash Required

July 11th, 2014

The Boulder Creek is currently flowing at a perfect level for inner tubing enthusiasts, and the summer temperatures only make it even more tempting to go relax in the fresh mountain water. A common problem many people have, however, is that not everyone owns an inner tube. Luckily, that’s not a problem today. We’ve teamed up with Whitewater Tubing and we’re giving away TEN free inner tube rentals to ten lucky winners! These tubes aren’t just your standard black rubber tubes, either. These state-of-the-art “super tubes” (see below) are 54 inches in diameter... Read More

The Boulder Creek is Once Again Open for Tubing!

June 25th, 2014

It has been announced that Boulder Creek is once more open for inner tubing enthusiasts. The Boulder Creek’s river discharge is down to just over 300 cubic feet per second (cfs), which means it’s safe for tubing. It’s not necessarily going to be a smooth ride, however. Normal creek rates are typically between 100 and 300 cfs, so the river levels are still a bit higher than average. This means that, if you plan on tubing, the river is going to rock you around like a hurricane. Essentially, be ready to simulate your tube going through a particularly wet pinball machine. Experts... Read More
