World-known for the prestigious University of Boulder, this town is no longer small, but quite a large city. Long-time locals continue to foster a smaller town feel by conducting numerous community events, businesses that encourage community involvement and with the thousands of college students living nearby.
The trail-lined Flatirons are craggy rock formations overlooking the city. Downtown’s pedestrian Pearl Street Mall includes art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and boutiques. The University of Colorado Boulder campus is home to the Fiske Planetarium and the Museum of Natural History, with zoology and anthropology exhibits.
Adventures await at Eldorado Canyon State Park, Royal Arch Trail, and surrounded by thousands of acres of recreational open space, conservation easements, and nature preserves. Almost 60 percent, of open space totaling 61,529 acres is open to the public.
With all Boulder has to offer along with numerous key industries, no wonder this location is world renown.
