Traveling Hacks is a List of great ideas for making your travel experience far less stressful. Except for #7. PLEASE don't take their advice on #7!

I have stayed at the St Julien Hotel and Spa Boulder for both pleasure and business. The location is central to the restaurants and the Pearl Street mall. My room was great with a mountain view. Comfy bed, spacious bathroom, and a well stocked mini bar with organic snacks. Nice fitness area. I never have time to indulge in the spa but was able to get a pedicure on my last visit. Very crisp, therapeutic environment. Definitely the best hotel in Boulder.

Boulder is known for its healthy habits including fresh foods and vegan/vegetarian menus so we felt a market to table tour was the best way to experience culinary Boulder. And we were correct. What an amazing experience. We visited several market to table restaurants and the farmer’s market where we met local farmers. The fresh food was fantastic and inspiring. This is a great way to explore Boulder!

This spa is amazing. We reserved a package here for the bridal party. Amazing! We each received the Essentials Day Spa Boulder "Stress Buster Package" which included a full body massage and aromatherapy hydro tub. We had a lot of fun and felt extremely pampered by the staff. We were all ready to face the big day!

Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides offers several biking and adventure tours. My girlfriends and I tried the 3.5 hour rock climbing for beginner’s trip in Boulder. It was very exciting! None of us have ever done such a thing. The instructors were very helpful and patient. We really enjoyed the experience and would love to do it again. They also offer rafting, fishing and hiking/backpacking.

We did this tour as a spur of the moment sort of thing. It’s great for tea lovers. We got to see the factory floor in operations with machinery and conveyor belts buzzing and experience their famous mint room at Celestial Seasonings Factory Tour. At the end of the tour they give you a tea cup to sample ANY of their teas. They were very generous of the samples. This was a pleasant break from our Colorado activities and it’s free!

Boulder, CO, United States : Box Car Coffee Roasters Boulder is a coffee place with fine meats and cheeses, wine and chocolates. What a great combination! Knowledgeable baristas, great menu, and excellent coffee. We enjoyed espresso and espresso drinks. Boxcar definitely knows how to roast and brew coffee. Best coffee in Boulder

Boulder, CO, United States : Wow! I have never seen donuts like this. Jalapeno Cheddar, maple bacon, s’mores, peanut butter and jelly, ham donut. We loved everything we tried. Dizzys Donuts Boulder is a fun place. Get there early. They only make a limited number of donuts so they have a tendency to run out. But, you can always count on them being warm and fresh!

Boulder, CO, United States : I had so much fun trying the different vodkas and taking a tour of this place. 303 Vodka Boulder has a very distinct personality with a relaxed atmosphere and fun environment. The tasting room is unique and funky. They had an amazing assortment behind the bar including of all their infused spirits. We tasted several vodkas and 5 infused vodkas. (There were 6 of us!) We enjoyed them all and would absolutely recommend this establishment!

Austin, TX, United States : My mother & I spent 3 wonderful days here. Everything was just fabulous: the room, spa amenities, food and staff. The resort is calming and beautiful. If you want to relax, then Travaasa Experiential Resort Austin is the place. The infinity pool has to be the best view in Austin. Everything here is tranquil. You WILL leave feeling rejuvenated.

My girlfriends and I booked a little getaway for two nights at Cozy Cactus Sedona. This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it was excellent. The owners are very friendly, breakfast was awesome and the room was comfortable and cozy with incredible views. The location is great, and you can hike for miles from the back gate. There is an outdoor patio with lots of bird feeders. We enjoyed sitting and listening to the birds sing as we sipped our morning coffee.

Sedona Adventure Tours was such a unique experience! Our water to wine tour involved kayaking to a vineyard for a wine tasting. What a novel idea! And we totally enjoyed our 3 hour trip. The scenery was beautiful and the wine wonderful. They suggest you bring a water bottle and I would suggest a hat as well. You must make reservations. No walk ups accepted.

Sedona, AZ, United States : Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village Sedona is a Mexican style shopping village full of fantastic shops, bars and art galleries. The shops feature items from local artisans and there is something for everyone here! Unique gifts and beautiful works of art abound. The atmosphere is quaint and beautiful. A visit makes for an excellent day out.
