"28th Street is the "main drag" of Boulder"

28th Street is the closest thing to "Main Street" that Boulder has. 28th is HW 36 when traveling between Estes Park and Denver. There are some homes on 28th along the northern portion of town but for the most part 28th is where the grocery stores, Target and lots of business and restaurants occur. This is THE busiest and most high traffic road in Boulder.

A new Trader Joe's for example just went in on 28th at the 29th Street Mall area. 28th has a lot of RTD buses for local passengers and riders going through Boulder.

HeatherS alot of west coast people are familiar and love trader joes, it is way cheaper than Whole Foods & it offers specialty foods and ideas and gluten free options etc and produce--something different and more reasonably priced is the allure I think

HeatherS so we went to Trader Joe's and to be honest I was not impressed, seemed like a little generic Vitamin Cottage? Yes prices were good and products were fine but not the trendy little unique worldy grocer I thought it would be. Whole Foods blows it out of the water! Even Sprouts is better:(

"Nice hotel in a nice neighborhood"

I once stayed at the Millenium Harvest House on 28th Street in Boulder. The prices are $129-$299 double; $229-$499 suite. I paid just about $200 even per night for a very nice double. The landscaping is quite nice with an outdoor garden area. They offer an indoor and outdoor pool, as well as lit tennis courts. I skipped the sports bar and puffed a $30 stogie in their Cigar Bar. The food while a bit slow to arrive was excellent. Overall I enjoyed my visit and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

"One of the better Best Westerns"

On 28th st, I stay at the Boulder Inn "Best Western". It is one of the better ones. They keep it well updated. It is right across the street from the University.Not far from there you can go and have fun like I did, at The Outback Saloon for Karaoke night! I had a blast making a fool out of myself at that sports bar. In fact, I had so much fun that I went back for more on the Saturday night before i had to leave to go home. I had to get on the plain with quite the hangover!
