Boulder's Royal Arch Hiking Tours

Family Fun at Boulder Reservoir

 Escape from the summer heat for a day at Boulder Reservoir! The reservoir will open at 5:30 am and the swim area will open at 5:00 am and there are grills and picnic tables for families. Rocky Mountain Paddleboards will be there as well with rentals all day! It’s a great day for the whole family to cool off and also enjoy the hot Colorado sun with a great view of the Rocky Mountains in the distance, and Longs Peak looming over the skyline.


Fireworks at Folsom Field

 What is the Fourth of July without fireworks? Especially when they’re safe and have a spectacular Flatiron backdrop? Join the fun at the stadium in a safe and controlled exciting show. For those who love to have their fireworks with the Fourth of July, and the City of Boulder under a strict fire ban this year, this is a great way to entertain the kids and family with a fun display of pyrotechnics high above the city. The doors open at 8:00 PM and fireworks display starts at 9:30!
