    i think it might have been voted the best place for dogs. i could be wrong. maybe it was denver. there was some Co town where dogs were allowed in many places & restaurants had dog treats in the menu.

      Wasn't it Boulder that Oprah visited on her cross country road trip? I remember her being in CO and in a town where everyone was active and fit because she stopped someone on the street and remarked how nobody there was overweight LOL Pretty sure that was Boulder.

        Hmm... what I know about Boulder is that they are big pot heads! The students at the unversity have a big thing every April 20th. Open pot smoking is pretty common. :)

        But seriously, it's a beautiful town. I think the scenery is amazing.

          Um the Oprah thing I think was Durango (where I live) b/c I just went and got our photos done old west like and in the window is her and Gayle dressed Old west style. And Durango is VERY fit. Everyone walks or rides bikes. But it could of been boulder. But just me thinking it was Durango!

              Um Boulder folk are a bit different..."HIPPIE" :) Honestly there are other CO towns that I prefer...I never quite understood the draw of Boulder...it is very outdoor-sy, lots of stuff to do...nice...BUT there are other towns in CO that have the same or more to offer...IMO!

                  If you're lookin to come to CO. for a weekend, I would recommend going to a mountain town. (Breck, Vail, Glenwood Springs) My FAVORITE PLACE in the mountains is definetely Glenwood Springs! They have a huge outdoor hot springs pool that is open year round, It's the cutest town full of restaurants, all sorts of shops, and you are in the heart of the mountains so you can walk on a hundred different trails. Also, white water rafting is right there too, and I can tell you if you have never been, it's one of the funest things you'll ever do!!!! Glenwood is incredibly romantic, and is PERFECT for a weekend in Colorado. I could go on and on....lol

                    Just like Andrea said a mountain town is great. Durango is the same. It has hot springs, TONS of shops. They have a train that you can take to another town and shop too. They have trails and rafting, kayaking, etc. Its gorgeous!
