From restaurants and bars to live music, theaters, and sporting events, there's usually no shortage of activities in these cities.

According to the website, the best college town to visit in Colorado is Boulder!

Writers also explained why they picked this popular city:

"Boulder is renowned for being an outdoor lover's dream, with hundreds of miles of bike paths and sidewalks beckoning people to abandon their cars and use their feet. The average residents in Boulder are only 28 years of age, according to USA Today, which is 10 years younger than the country's median age. Attribute the age to the fact that the town is home to six different colleges and universities, including the University of Colorado – Boulder.
