While we were in Colorado, Boulder served as our sort of home base for the rest of our adventures. It’s such a lively little town and if you’re gonna live in a “bubble”, as many Boulder residents refer to their little slice of paradise, I’d say it’s a pretty good bubble to live in.
When we first arrived we checked into Basecamp Boulder, an old motel with a new flair, then after road tripping around the state, we stayed in two lovely apartments near Pearl Street. Here are some shots of the places we slept, ate, drank, and explored. Enjoy.
Basecamp Boulder was the perfect, well, basecamp for our first week in Colorado. We would highly recommend a visit, and they have two other locations in Tahoe!
Tim and I were both able to connect with old friends that have since made their home in Boulder. One beautiful summer evening I caught up with my friend Emily at Boulder’s mid-week farmer’s market. We sat in the grass and chatted about life while eating delicious food. She even treated me to a gourmet s’more from Fortuna Chocolate. It was the most fantastic s’more I have ever eaten.
After taking a whirlwind road trip around the state and spending a weekend in Denver, we returned to Boulder and checked into this lovely gem of a guest house just off Pearl. It was the perfect respite from a fun but exhausting week. We could not get over how perfectly designed the space was, and our hosts put out some lovely blooms to welcome us!
Boulder is the perfect base to explore Rocky Mountain National Park from, which we did our best to take advantage of. We hiked to a bouldering spot near Dream Lake on our first full day in Colorado and it felt like winter!
I’m sure we’ll find ourselves in Boulder some time again, and I look forward to it.
