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.

Great dining, beer, bar, coffee spots and deals; priced for college kids but good enough for adults who are looking for high quality food and coffee at a fraction of the cost

The Hill is the main area just off campus that is the center of student life for socializing with some great local restaurants and bars. Every school has an area like this and CU 's is a mix of old and new.
