My Boulder Itineraries
Some say the best recommendations come from trusted family and friends. For us, there is no one better than downtown business owners and managers themselves to give you a look at the best that downtown Boulder has to offer. Not only do they work here, but they also dine, shop and play here! This is their Boulder and now, they are sharing some of their best kept secrets with you.
Summer Saturday with Heads Up, The Hat Cart
With a background in Film and English Lit, Chris Norris didn't foresee himself hanging out on the Pearl Street Mall and selling hats for 18 years and counting!
After Work with Food Lab
After work, you can't beat sitting on the Corrida rooftop and sipping a glass of wine.
After Work with The Corner Bar
On the big night we like to start out with some wine (her) and an old fashioned (me) at License No. 1. Once our spirits are lifted and our appetite has started to rise we take a stroll west down Pearl Street and more often than not end up at Zoe Ma Ma.
Downtown Insider with Frasca
When I am not at the restaurant I try to take advantage of everything Boulder has to offer, from the trails to fine dining.
Downtown Insider with Matt Segal
It doesn't get much better than morning coffee at Boxcar. They've perfected the art of cowboy style coffee, which is something I can really appreciate.
Patio Day with Savvy
Like many Boulder natives and transplants, I have a huge appreciation for good food, the outdoors and any patio that allows me to enjoy both at once!
Chef's Day Off with Spruce Farm & Fish
First off, can someone please tell me what a “day off” is? LOL!
Afternoon Stroll with Canoe Club
To start an afternoon stroll through downtown Boulder, Lolita's is a my first stop. It's right across the street from our shop down on 8th and Pearl, so their phenomenal sandwiches are my go-to.
Kidding Around with Organic Sandwich Company
A beautiful day on Pearl Street will inevitably lead us to get gelato at Fior Di Latte - we love both locations but we prefer the one on the east end because of its proximity to the best puzzle shop in the land.
Summer Saturday with Let's Roam
The perfect Saturday downtown begins with the Farmer’s Market. I always try to make it in time to get a croissant from Shamane’s Bake Shoppe
Downtown Insider with Fair Trade Winds
When I’m not at Fair Trade Winds you can probably find me enjoying one of the many trails we are fortunate to have here in Boulder, or taking in a show at the Boulder Theater.
A Day at the Office with Art Source International
It’s so wonderful to work downtown and be able to walk out the “office” and take advantage of the downtown businesses in the area.
Dinner on the West End with Adorned
I love our end of Boulder. My husband and I have a Pilates class together on Thursday nights and generally go out to dinner afterwards.
After Work with Gelato Boy
When we finish up at our shops, we often stay downtown on or near Pearl St.
A Day on the West End with Downtown Boulder Real Estate
For me, a walk on the west end of pearl street while shopping and dining is a great reminder of why I live and work in Boulder. It’s a nice place for a slow walk with the kids and Moe, our 7 year old Boston Terrier, on the weekends.
Summer Saturday with Boulder Tour Company
My favorite thing to do on a summer Saturday is take clients on fat tire e-bike tours. I like to start my tours from the famous Hotel Boulderado. This amazing historic landmark opened in 1909 and is a sight to see.
Downtown Insider with Alex Bogusky
I ride my bike to work downtown with a permagrin on my face every day. For me, this is a dream come true.

Boulder County is truly the mecca for amazing craft beer and Downtown Boulder does not disappoint those looking to quench their thirst and imbibe some fine brews.

For special occasions, we always recommend our guests experience the world-class hospitality of Frasca Food and Wine, just around the corner from The Bradley.
After Work with Boulder Book Store
After we're done at the store, the first order of business is always happy hour!
Summer Saturday with Ben & Jerry's
I love that I work at Ben & Jerry’s. In the summer it’s a huge bonus that I get to see so many people enjoy ice cream. My perfect summer Saturday starts at the Boulder Farmers Market with my sister.
Beer Me with The Post Chicken & Beer
Boulder is a place that's maintained its character through the massive evolution that's happened in the last 10 years. Though there are some businesses that have come and gone, the overall vibe of Pearl Street and Downtown in general is still quintessentially "Boulder".
West End Insider with Envision Boulder
Our office is in a unique location, surrounded by some of the best food on Pearl and amazing shops.
Mountain Dweller with Zeal Optics

Having lived a hectic urban lifestyle in Chicago for over 15 years, we were looking for an opportunity to do more of what we loved, including connecting with a smaller community and enjoying the outdoors. Boulder was the perfect answer!
Girls' Day with Lindsay's Boulder Deli
I'm so passionate about Lindsay's Boulder Deli @ Haagen Dazs, but man, do we have some great restaurants and shopping in Downtown Boulder!
An Evening Downtown with The Little Jewel
Our store is situated by the play rocks and we love to see kids & parents enjoying time on the mall. If I’m going out to a show downtown, I always start the night with drinks at The Corner Bar.
Weekend Escape with Barbara & Company
An overnight stay in downtown Boulder has become a holiday tradition for us. It starts with an early lunch at Dushanbe Tea House, always beautiful but like a jewel a this time of year.
Downtown Foodie with Local Table Tours
Downtown Boulder is small, but it is packed with great places to wine and dine, or just plain indulge. A weekend getaway can be punctuated by exploring our world class dining scene.

Every great downtown Boulder day starts off with a hot cup of coffee from one of the many amazing coffee shops like Ozo or Boxcar. Once I'm fully alert, I'd head out for a run along Boulder Creek Path.

For the ultimate girls' day, of course we love to start out at Island Farm!
