Yasmeen Gurmendi is passionate about all things outdoors. The Boulder-based dentist developed a love for hiking early on in life. Growing up in New Mexico, Yasmeen was surrounded by mountains and natural beauty and says that one of the things she loves most about her new home in Colorado is its accessibility to incredible outdoor activities. A desert girl at heart, Yasmeen just tried skiing for the first time this year! We’re proud of you, girl!
When she’s not taking up new (and incredibly difficult, might we add) snow sports, Yasmeen is hanging out with her dog and taking advantage of all that Boulder has to offer. The summertime is one of the best times of year to visit this charming town. The flatirons sparkle above Pearl Street and the banks of the Boulder Creek are filled with twenty-somethings drinking and soaking in the sheer joy that is summer in Colorado. Boulder is recognized by many as the place to be, with U.S. News ranking it the No. 1 place in America to call home two years in a row, and National Geographic named it ‘The Happiest City in America’. This small city has so much to rave about and is the perfect place for your next summer getaway. We chatted with Boulder local Yasmeen to get her top recs, and we just know you’re gonna love them!
