A laid-back university town located roughly 25 minutes northwest
of Denver, Boulder is a sophisticated and artistic city; the large
population of students from Colorado University gives Boulder a
lively nightlife and liberal attitude. Taking full advantage of its
close proximity to the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is a city fanatical
about outdoor activities like hiking, rock climbing, mountain
biking, camping, and skiing, and is positioning itself as a tourist
hub for travelers on their way to Rocky Mountain National Park.
