6 Amazing Things to do in Boulder, Colorado, USA
After summer camp this year I went to visit my mate Javi and he showed me some amazing things to do in Boulder, Colorado, where he lives and works.
Javi is a big Cuban/American, and is without a doubt, my best male american friend.
This year was my first time at camp without him so I went over to Boulder, Colorado to catch up with him.
A fun fact about Javi is that he has never actually been to Cuba. His father migrated from Cuba and refuses to let any of them go back while it is still a communist country.
6 Amazing Things to Do in Boulder, Colorado
Ok, here it is. My list of 6 amazing things to do in Boulder, Colorado.
1. Smoke Pot
Sure, you can smoke marijuana almost anywhere in the ‘free’ world, but in Boulder, Colorado, it is legal. Well, medicinal marijuana is legal so there’s a lot of ‘Pot Shops’ around the city.
2. Explore Boulder on Foot
Boulder, Colorado is best described as a rich white guy town. When I first arrived Javi went to work and I did some foot exploration, he told me to count how many black people I saw. I counted two, and they both worked in the kitchen at the diner where I ate lunch. The other thing that stood out about Boulder, is that everyone was super friendly. Almost everyone would smile and say hello to you on the street.
3. Visit the Rocky Mountains
The main attraction of the amazing things to do in Boulder is the Rocky Mountains. Javi is not much of a hiker, and when I say not much I mean he just doesn’t do “that type of sh*t”, so we drove there.
4. Go See the House From the Movie “The Shining”
It was pretty cool, took a few snaps and even one outside of the house that the filmed ‘The Shining’ in (Jack Nicholson).
5. Go Drinking
As is the norm with Javi we went on the piss a few times. One time with his workmates, where by the end of the night I was checking out one of his mates gun collection.
6. Go to Denver
Technically this isn’t an amazing things to do in Boulder, but I’m counting it because we went from Boulder. So the other time we went out drinking we drove to Denver as Javi had a girlfriend there. We just went to the corner pub for a few. It pissed down with rain but was a cool casual night and the lass behind the bar was a stereo-typical American biker chick.
Final thoughts on Boulder Colorado
Boulder is cool for a visit and felt really safe. I do need to go back though and hike in the Rockies for a few days. Also to check out the rest of Colorado.
