Boulder is a universe unto itself. Set in a valley to the northwest of Denver at the base of the Rocky Mountains, the town is medium sized, clean and beautiful. The Flatirons look down on Boulder from the southwest. The University of Colorado is located in Boulder and gives the town a youthful feel. In addition companies like Google have offices in Boulder. The town is known for its liberal attitude and its true that there are many MMJ dispensaries in and around town. The Pearl Steet Mall and surrounding area, however, hums with activity every night and has many fine dining restaurants as well as bars and nightclubs.

Boulder is my home town and I couldn't be happier to return home every time I do. A trip to Boulder can be a fascinating mix of everything from outdoor adventures and craft breweries to university lecture series'. While it has arguably lost some of its charming "hippie" culture of earlier days, it is still a socially conscious town with a lot of vibrancy and energy.

Boulder is a wonderful place to live and attend university. The music scene and night life are wonderful. Boulder Theater and Fox Theater always have great bands and Shine and the Laughing Goat have exciting nightly music as well. Noted for having 360 days of sunshine and nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is the perfect place to go for a hike in around the Flatirons or up Mount Sanitas. Other fun activities include rock climbing, mountain biking, and trail running. In the spring time, the Saturday Farmer's market is a great place to listen to live music with friends and family and to taste delicious local food products and produce.

My fav town in the world, this college epicenter is a cross between the street culture of San Fran and hippie/green world of Seattle/Portland, with a little Midwest kindness thrown in for good measure. Seriously, blue skies and clean air puts everyone in a better mood.

Boulder is a lifestyle city. Small and set into the mountains, you're just a short drive away from any number of outdoor sports and activities. The air is fresh, there's something like 300 days of sunshine a year and the restaurants are excellent.

It's a very funny palce, full of young people and bikes. People here have a healthy life. Shops and restaurants are nice. The pedestrian area of Boulder is similar in some ways to Lincoln Road in Miami. A very enjoyable place.
