Exploring East End
So one of the major perks about this internship is that you constantly get to explore downtown. I get to scope out all of the new stores and restaurants that pop up, and give an insider's perspective to all of you.
Time for Taco Tuesday!
In honor of it being Tuesday, I found it appropriate for my blog post this week to be centered around “Taco Tuesday”. Taco Tuesday is a popular event that happens in Boulder just each and every week, so might as well enjoy it right? The drink and food deals happening downtown are one’s that can’t be missed.
Memorial Day Festivities 2018
Memorial Day is right around the corner, and of course, Downtown Boulder will be buzzing with events and people! If you’re wondering what to do on Memorial Day (and weekend) don’t worry, I’m here to help.
My name is Tyla, I’m currently a student at CU Boulder, and am your new eyes, ears, and voice of Downtown Boulder as the summer 2018 intern. As a Colorado native, Boulder has always been a big part of my life
See You Later Downtown Boulder!
I truly cannot believe I am at the end of this experience with Downtown Boulder and my college career. What a treat it was to work with this wonderful organization in my last internship as an undergrad. The passion and dedication of the team I worked with will ruin me forever as I search for an job with the same warm and charismatic culture as the Downtown Boulder Partnership.
5 Things To Do This Summer in Downtown Boulder
I think it's safe to say that most people’s favorite time of year is summer and I would definitely qualify as one of those people. I’m not sure if it’s the nostalgia of summer break as a kid, or if it’s the beautiful weather, but we can all appreciate a nice, gorgeous summer day.
It’s springtime in Downtown Boulder. How can we tell? Tulips all along Pearl Street are beginning to bloom!
It's 5 o'clock somewhere!
Everyone loves a good happy hour, including me (see picture above)! Whenever the weather is nice or I’ve had a looong day, downtown’s happy hours call my name (and for those of you who don’t know, we have some pretty good ones to choose from)! The competition was tough, but I’ve managed to pull together my TOP 3 favorite happy hours…
Ready? Set? Taste of Pearl!
As we get ramped up for spring, we are getting ready for a jam packed season full of events downtown. One of the favorite events around the office is Taste of Pearl. Personally, I am really excited to be a part of what sounds like a really fun event.
St. Patrick's Day Shenanigans 2018
I know you’re all probably just as excited as I am for all of the St. Patrick’s day festivities - green beer, bagpipes and kilts! Such an exciting time and with the luck of the Irish, it lands on a Saturday this year!

Farewell to Downtown Boulder!
As this fall semester has come to a fast and unexpected close, so has my internship with Downtown Boulder. After these last four months of interning here, I am happy to be able to walk away with some real-life experience under my belt. As a senior, I will be graduating this upcoming May and (hopefully) begin my post-grad life as a young professional soonafter! I am thankful that this internship has given me an opportunity to get a hands-on glimpse and head start towards my future.

Lights, Camera, Holiday Cheer!
Sure, it’s still seventy degrees out most days and there may not be any snow on the ground just yet but that doesn’t change the fact that the holidays are just around the corner.

Boulder, like many mountain towns in the west, has our fair share of breathtaking views, various outdoor spaces and wonderful weather. However, what separates Boulder from the rest is it’s downtown.
