University of Colorado at Boulder

With delicious restaurants and bars packed wall-to-wall, pedestrian marketplaces lined with high end retail stores, and nationally-renowned music venues, Boulder might just be the perfect college town. Oh, and did we mention that the town sits at the base of the Rocky Mountains?! "The best thing about Boulder is the endless list of outdoor activities that newcomers can dive into. You can climb the flat irons, you can go skiing or snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking, camping, even longboarders have many challenging hills to bomb here," says Andrew, a junior. If the town and surrounding areas isn't enough to pique your interest, students also rave about the campus itself. According to Bonnie, a sociology major, "The best thing about Boulder is the beautiful campus. It is one of the most beautiful campuses in the country."
