BOULDER– Come Friday campus will be deserted once again.
Spring Break is here and many students are checking out of school and into paradise.
For those who can’t pick up the bill for a fancy spring break trip, there are plenty of things to do in Boulder and Denver if you plan ahead.
Many students don’t realize the famous tea company Celestial Seasonings is brewed right here in Boulder.
Off of 4600 Sleepytime Drive, the company offers free tours of their factory and after, a complimentary tea-tasting.
“There’s a lot of senses that are stimulated here taking the tour. The lemongrass, the cinnamon, the mint room – is one of the highlights on the tour. People really enjoy the multi-sensory experience,” Steve Spencer, Guest Relations of Celestial Seasonings.
Tour times are on their website here.
Another great way to kick-off your break is by releasing some endorphins.
The Boulder Rock Club and Colorado Mountain School offer lead climbing, bouldering, top-roping and training.
The Boulder Rock Club off of Mapleton St. is an indoor climbing facility so you can enjoy the great indoors. If you prefer fresh air the Colorado Mountain School is their out-door program, which even includes avalanche courses – perfect for any skier or outdoorsman.

A short drive to Denver isn’t all that bad. Especially if you’re seeing world-class art.
The Clyfford Still museum is a new art museum in Denver next to the Denver Art Museum.
Clyfford Still was one of the most important Abstract Expressionists of the 20th Century. After his passing in 1980 his wife chose Denver as the home for the collection.
“ I think it’s really important for us as Americans to know our own art history. It’s not just about the great museums of Europe like the Louvre, that here in the states and here in our backyard in Denver – we have this incredible collection plus the museum itself is art. The architecture is really incredible we actually just won an award for the architecture,” Irene Weygandt, Director of Marketing said.
So even if you’re “stuck” in Boulder, you can still have a good time and keep busy.
