Surrounding Boulder

<p>Of course, Boulder is all about the outdoors and offers amazing venues for climbing, skiing and more. You can easily get to the some-odd-300 miles of hiking trails which is only dwarfed by the 45,000 acres of undeveloped area surrounding the city. Or, if you want to get out on the water checkout Boulder Reservoir for its temperate waters and wonderful landscapes. Between Fishing, Hiking, Kayaking, Skiing, Rock Climbing (the list goes on), there is no shortage of things to do in Boulder.</p>

Drinking Out Of Mason Jars

<p>Restaurants in Boulder are expectedly diverse as well. There are plenty of chain style places but also plenty of locally owned, very good establishments. Until you're settled and get to know your neighborhood, try out places like Il Pastaio, where everything is homemade, Brasserie Ten Ten, and Efrain's for a different style of Mexican food and margaritas in mason jars. Q's is a great place for breakfast as is either of the Dot's Diners in town. Go upscale at either Flagstaff House or Boulder Cork as both have fine steaks. The ratio of person to restaurants is very good in this likable city!</p>

Pure Nightlife

<p>At night, you can expect to find just about any kind of bar and night life you'd like. With a heavy music scene, there are plenty of dance clubs like Pure Nightlife or the Beta, where you can dress up and dance all night. There are also plenty of brewery style pubs like Mountain Sun, Walnut and Boulder Beer. Those are the cream of the cream. There are little pubs and dive bars all over town and while there's certain to be one near home, the Scotch Corner and Pearl Street are worth checking out.</p>
