Boulder, Colorado

Consider University of Colorado students lucky: Boulder's Rocky Mountain backdrop means skiing, rock-climbing, and mountain biking are at their disposal all semester long. Less outdoorsy types could plan visits during the annual Colorado Music Festival (in June) or the Boulder International Fringe Festival (September).
