Things to do in Boulder that aren’t outside
Boulder is known for its versatile atmosphere, from hiking and biking to tubing down Boulder Creek, there are many things to keep you entertained around the clock. But what happens when the temperatures drop to below freezing and your nose hairs begin to feel a little like icicles? Here is a list of a few things that aren’t outside.
Located conveniently in the middle of downtown lies the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. There you will find various exhibitions of paintings, sculptures, and photographs, but most importantly heat! Right now, BUY is one of the featured exhibits and it contains paintings from Colorado-based Sharon Feder. She has complied artwork based around “big-box stores” like Target and IKEA.
The Fox Theatre and The Boulder Theater
What’s a better way to stay warm than to dance your butt off? Head on over to the two great concert venues that Boulder has to offer and check out some of the shows! There is usually a concert going on almost every night of the week. Some pretty big names like Run DMT and Spoon are soon to arrive at the Fox Theatre. Or if movies are more your thing, Warren Miller Entertainment is featuring their new ski movie at the Boulder Theater.
