Food scene
Very good, family-owned and-operated Indian restaurant. In business for 20+ years. They also own a little no-name neighborhood-vibe bar right next door. It’s a great place to get a drink, watch a game and maybe hear some music. Full menu from the restaurant is available.

Good, comfort-food kind of place with small patio and a bar. Nothing flashy and slightly over-priced but it’s solid. Especially something to consider if there’s a wait at the Suns.

Samgöngur

Ditch your car if you can.

Boulder traffic isn't particularly bad, but it can be annoying. With our excellent network of bike paths, bicycle is the best (and most fun) way to get around town. Several local shops offer rentals. It also happens that your host, Joel, runs an eBike tour/rental biz (JD's Joyrides) and offers special discounts to our Airbnb guests.
