It takes about fifty minutes on the RTD bus service to reach Boulder, Colorado after the Amtrak California Zephyr pulls up at Denver Station.

The ride into Denver at night is magical as the “Mile High City” glows at night from a distance as the train steams towards the centre of town.

The Days Hotel Boulder is a comfortable, clean and well-appointed hotel for the budget conscious traveler. It is conveniently located near the Table Mesa Park n Ride bus stop, from which you’re just a short bus ride out of town. Single king rooms start from about US$55 and include free high speed WiFi, microwave, fridge and cable TV.

Eldora Ski Resort is a short bus ride away from Boulder and worth a visit if you want to hit the slopes in Colorado.

Pearl St Mall has a good mix of shops, cafes and restaurants to keep you busy for at least one afternoon.

If you have a sweet tooth, head on down to the Cheesecake Factory and dig into one of their many cheesecake specialties, you won’t be disappointed. The triple chocolate is not to be missed!

Getting to Denver International Airport couldn’t be easier aboard the RTD SkyRide bus service ($12 adult) from the Table Mesa Park n Ride.

  1. It looks absolutely beautiful there! I am in Miami currently. Talk about polar opposites!

  2. Of all the excellent dining options available on Pearl Street, you are going to recommend the Cheesecake Factory?? Weak dude, weak.

    Pranav: Alex, I know what you mean as Boulder is the place for people passionate about good food, but I’d had a long, tiring day and all I wanted was some dessert 🙂 If you have any dining tips feel free to share mate

  3. Thanks for this article, were going to Boulder next week to visit friends we’ve know from high school. I want to get some spring sking in and Eldora ski resport looks like it would be great!
