Boulder offers the perfect mix – a laid-back college town with big-city business smarts. The city’s approximate 100,000 residents work and play against a mountain backdrop that includes the Flatirons and the “back range” Indian Peaks Wilderness Area with its snowy Arapaho Glacier. More than 30,000 of those residents attend the University of Colorado-Boulder with its picturesque campus.
Boulder has been described as one of the healthiest and happiest places to live. You'll find a Starbucks and the big box stores, but you'll also find natural foods markets, artists' studios, and coffee shops that only serve organic, free-trade coffee. Moving to Boulder means you'll have access to some of the best schools in the country, name-brand shopping, unique specialty stores and nationally-recognized restaurants, all set below the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Boulder’s vibrant historic downtown features the Pearl Street Mall, an award-winning pedestrian shopping, dining and entertainment destination. Additional retail and restaurants can be found in the central corridor surrounding the Twenty-Ninth Street retail district. There are more than 400 restaurants, including several that have received national acclaim.
