  • This is a neat book store. We came an hour before closing time and I had just gotten to the good stuff up in the 3rd floor. It reminded my friends of a Powell book store. I love support little local b...  more »

  • To me this is one of the best bookstores in the state. There are very few that rival its size and selection. When you first enter you think, "Oh, just a small bookstore," but then as you start to explore you realize how much more it is. There are three floors with each one having a half dozen rooms with thousands of books in each of them all perfectly organized and neatly displayed for easy finding. One of my favorite features of this particular store is how each of the areas of the store have different feels to them. The main lobby is a hustle and bustle New York City type of feeling with floor to ceiling best sellers, and new releases with heavy foot traffic from the front door and island of registers. Then moving to the kids area it calms into a playroom feeling with stuffed animals, toys and bright colors. As you descend into the levels below the sounds all quiet and the creaks of the hardwood add to an ambiance of an old world antique store. With several places to sit down and read, and devices about for accessories and searching. With each section clearly labeled and organized in a manner of thought, this easily takes my vote as one of the best bookstores. I highly recommend you go here first to find anything on anything by anyone. Staff is great and knowledgeable and its friendship with local authors like myself, is very appreciative.
  • I don't think I could leave this book store without a book in hand! I always find something great to read here. Plus they have given me a chance to meet some of my favorite authors. Just check their website and I'm sure you will find some awesome events scheduled.
  • Three entire floors of everything you could ever want to read. Book selections include almost every conceivable topic, ranging from astrophysics to cook books. Great atmosphere, and friendly staff. Being in an outside mall, there is no parking, but the walk to here is worth it.
  • Such a great variety of books. It's easy to get lost in here (literally and figuratively)! Great section for kids, too, with lots of beautiful books and activities for your littles. Join their rewards program for a discount on purchases.
  • Loved this place. It's rare to find​ a bookstore in the era of Amazon and kindle. Nonetheless, the selection of books, the cozy layout and friendly staff really make this a fun place to discover books and other cool items. Worth stopping by.

Where to stay in Boulder

You'll find most of the pricier and more luxurious accommodations in downtown Boulder, but the city offers hotel rooms suitable for every traveler's budget. Stay in the heart of the city if you want quick access to shops and restaurants, but if you're traveling on a limited budget, consider a good value inn a short walk or bicycle ride from downtown. You can also choose to stay in Denver for a wider selection of economical hotels and motels; it's just 30 minutes southeast of Boulder.
