Unless you're a college student - a few places to eat, a few shops, convenient if you have to eat before attending an event at CU

Just west of campus, this student hangout is the place to see, watch, and taste CU-Boulder. Nice fast food (jJmmy John's and others) and coffee outlets. Worth exploring, but not for long.

The Hill boasts many activities for us Boulderites. The college frat and sorority houses are in this area, but much more. It is central to southern-edge of the city off Broadway. Lots of commerce and a fine small music venue help the party going.
