Located about 30 to 40 minutes from Denver, it’s the perfect place for those who want to be close to the city for work but live out where you can see gorgeous mountain views, flatirons and not worry about construction messing up either.
Being a hot market means homes are more expensive to purchase, but also more lucrative to own and sell.
The City of Boulder is protective of its citizenry and reputation. They don’t allow clubs or restaurants to remain open late to keep noise at a minimum. It’s also a college town, so protecting the students is also important.
Boulder also has amazing bike paths, gorgeous vistas of wide-open spaces and incredible trails. This is all while being in close proximity to a large city. There is a huge park in Boulder with huge rocks called the Flatirons. perfect for a newbie rock climber.
The weather is great too!
Since it’s really a semi arid area, snow and rain are minimal so beautiful weather reigns. Warm summers and winters that are usually not close to frigid are common. With all that beautiful weather spending time close by nature is easily accomplished. Lots of waterfowl, eagles, and other wildlife. It’s an amazing place to go rock climbing and bouldering and hiking and skiing isn’t too far away. If you like other sports like sailplaning or hang gliding, or even ultralight flying.
Some complain about the lack of diversity and conservative politics, but don’t let that stop you. Things like that are fluid, and with all the other pluses, why let that be a sticking point?
Come see Boulder and see what you think. You won’t be disappointed!
