Honeymoon Hotspot: Boulder, CO

The breathtaking natural beauty of Boulder, Colorado will attract the couple who cannot deny their fierce passion for adventure, despite their hopeless romantic tendencies. Both close to home and a refreshing change of pace, Boulder offers a much needed escape from reality after the anxiety of wedding planning has finally passed. In addition, for couples who wed in the summer, Boulder’s high altitudes promise cooler temperatures than other typical honeymoon destinations. This allows more opportunity for outdoor activities and exploration, and a chance to grow as a newly married couple while reveling in nature's bounty in its purest form.
Relaxation is promised by the many local B&Bs, especially The Bradley Boulder Inn--a TripAdvisor favorite, with reviews praising everything from the complimentary beverages to the delicious breakfasts. Located only a short walk from many local restaurants and shops--giving you a chance to explore some of the local nightlife after exploring during the day--The Bradley Boulder Inn is both convenient and comfortable--and utterly romantic in its simple, rustic elegance. The establishment offers everything from complimentary wine and cheese tastings to ideal downtown location for the ultimate leisurely getaway!
However, despite the temptations of the Inn, the real adventure lies beyond the homey comforts of your room. A brief car ride away awaits Chautauqua Park--one of Boulder, Colorado’s many attractions. Though the vast expanse of the mountains gives the impression of untouched wilderness, the park offers marked hikes and picnic areas for an experience you both will remember for a lifetime. You will not lack for scenery, as the many varieties of foliage and varying terrain will keep you out hiking and chasing that feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment which the end will bring for hours. One highly recommended hike is on Mesa Trail--a gorgeous intermediate level hike with well marked paths. We suggest bringing along a bag packed full of your favorite cheese, crackers and wine for an intimate moment together, and a chance to avoid the more touristy, crowded areas of the city. While the park offers a destination for your itinerary, Boulder is rich with other natural beauty to discover--particularly the Flatirons. Ancient reddish sandstone formations along Boulder’s foothills, the Flatirons are stunning to look at, and a rewarding struggle to trek along--or climb, for the adventurous spirit up for the challenge! The unknown and unexplored lies in the comfort of your backyard!
If an outdoor picnic does not live up to your ideas of romance, look no further than Blackbelly restaurant--a taste of local farm-fresh flavors in an upscale setting. Given the chef’s title of “Top Chef” champ, any hesitations can be thrown right out the window. Among their many delicious dinner options are the highly recommended fresh cuts of steak from their butchershop. However, their menu extends far beyond beef, with everything from crispy pig ears to delicious seafood. They also boast an extensive wine, beer and cider list--the cherry on top to any perfect dinner.
Though the list of activities and sightseeing are endless for your honeymoon, we still like to emphasize the importance of the little things during these trips. For her, Boulder Blooms florist shop offers a wonderful opportunity for a thoughtful surprise. A soft and delicate bouquet also serves as a reminder that, despite the chaos of daily life, you’ll always find moments to remind her how deeply you care. For him (and you!) we suggest a couple’s massage at nearby Elements Massage as a way to further encourage the escape from reality and time for indulgent relaxation which your honeymoon offers.
