The tourists are coming! The tourists are coming! Half of Boulder’s hotel lodgers visit during the summer. They’re here to vacation, visit family and friends, and conduct a bit of business. They stay an average of 3.6 nights apiece and spend an average of $170 to $285 a day, or $77 if they’re day-tripping.


I get tired of giving directions occasionally, but the impact Boulder’s visitors have on our economy never gets old. So put a smile on your face, gently explain that it’s not OK to drive down the pedestrian mall and make sure they know about your business with the Colorado Daily’s Visitor’s Guide.


Published Monday through Friday from May 22 through July 31, the Visitor’s Guide is a handy pullout featuring a map of the downtown Boulder area and a schedule of places to go and things to do. The Colorado Daily is free, everywhere and available at more than 60 tourist haunts, including the visitor’s kiosk on the Pearl Street Mall. And our Visitor’s Guide is the only one in the area produced fresh daily. Call 303.473.1400 to reserve your space.
