“Visit as an anthropologist”
Review of The Hill

The Hill
Ranked #51 of 148 things to do in Boulder
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 July 2017

An anthropologist visits strange tribes to view their odd customs. You can do the same on The Hill, an area only a few blocks in size that hosts thousands of young people plus homeless people plus any others attracted to the buzz of activity. The art store is worth a visit because you are there with very fine (and expensive) art gear ...and artists! -- whom you can feel moving through the space, deciding on their next great art-piece. Very enjoyable to converse with people at coffee shops. Then, of course, write up your anthropological notes and send them to your friends.

Our travel guide (book) sent us to the Hill, but we weren't impressed. We didn't try any bar or restaurant though. Lots of homeless people and their dogs...We should have tried some place to eat.

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.

Visiting for Mom's Weekend. Loved seeing all the Fraternity and Sorority houses. Quaint homes with amazing charm

This CU student favorite hangout changes constantly, with an always interesting array of bars, restaurants, shops and local characters. Used to visit regularly when our daughter was at CU. Loved seeing that, even though it has changed a bit, it still has the same funky vibe.
