    Beauty and brains—Boulder proves it has both

    Set at the base of the Rocky Mountains in northern Colorado, the town of Boulder offers a picturesque setting, where craggy rock formations meet sprawling, wildflower-filled meadows. The rural surroundings serve as an invitation to outdoorsy types, practically begging them to explore the region's pristine parks and preserves. Home to the University of Colorado Boulder, the town also caters to those with a curious mind. Your Boulder vacation rental places you near educational institutions that explore the world of arts and sciences. If you're not interested in anything too heady, Boulder also features hubs for eating and shopping.

    These boots are made for walking… and hiking and biking

    Leave the comfort of your Boulder vacation rental behind as you venture into the wild. If you're searching for the region's best hiking trails, look no further than nearby Flagstaff Mountain, home to a towering 6,983-foot peak, or the Flatirons, Boulder's iconic rock formations. Prefer to do your exploring on 2 wheels? The 132-acre Valmont City Park features mountain biking courses, including a miniature track for kids on tricycles. If your idea of a workout is shopping until you drop, downtown's pedestrian-only, outdoor Pearl Street Mall is lined with art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops.

    Blast off! Space, science, and some art for good measure

    Set on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, the Museum of Natural History highlights items, from tools to fossils, unearthed in the region by archaeologists. Leave earth behind at the university's Fiske Planetarium, which hosts popular laser astronomy shows. For a change of pace, Colorado Chautauqua is a performing arts complex that offers experimental but family-friendly programming. For a more high-brow experience, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art offers rotating exhibits throughout the year. The perfect end to any day can be had with a quiet stroll through the tiny but picturesque Andrews Arboretum.

    Preparing for Boulder's winter—expect the unexpected

    Booking your Boulder vacation rental for the winter? Make sure you check the forecast as conditions can vary from mild to way below freezing. The city sees more than 80 inches of snowfall annually, but it can melt quickly due to the region's frequent sunny days. March is the snowiest month, garnering up to 17 inches total. Spring and fall offer pleasant daytime highs in the 50s and 60s, but pack an umbrella for May, Boulder's wettest month. Summers are dry and warm, with the mercury climbing into the 90s at times.

    Magnificent mountains, meadows, and everything in between

    The Rocky Mountains may dominate in size, but the majestic rock formations throughout Boulder remain the city's most beloved natural landmark. The surrounding meadows also add to the colorful scenery throughout the year, whether they're a vibrant green after spring rains, golden brown during the dry summer and autumn, or blanketed in white snow. Dense pine forests cover the nearby hillsides, where you might spot such regional wildlife as coyote, red fox, white-tail deer, and elk. Boulder Creek cuts through the heart of the city but Boulder parks also feature numerous lakes and ponds.
