2Head up the hill to the south to the University of Colorado campus, visiting Old Main and the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History. Stroll down the hill.
3On Saturday mornings or Wednesday afternoons in the warm months, take 13th Street and visit the Boulder County Farmers’ Market between Canyon Boulevard and Arapahoe Avenue, where you’ll also find the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.
