Boulder, Colorado is a nature lovers' paradise.
About Boulder, Colorado—Its People and Personality

Boulder, Colorado is a very eclectic city, and that can only mean a large number of young, urban residents. Boulder is considered primarily a college town, as the University of Colorado is found here. The city has a reputation for being artsy and yet elegant. Many companies operate out of Boulder.

The city is nearby Rocky Mountain National Park and also attracts its fair share of sports fans. Though originally an area scouted for gold in the 1800s, by the mid-1900s, Boulder was already earning a reputation as a scientific city and an environmentally sound place to live.

The population of Boulder comes from the college area, as well as from the working class who travel everyday to the computer companies and research firms that call the city home. A city truly earns the description of eclectic when there are just as many bohemians in the city as there are suburban dads. The median age of the city is 29 years, compared to the U.S. median of 35.1. The median household income is $50,209 and the median family income is $85,807.

Within Boulder lay 43,000 acres of open space. This is the same city that bans smoking, so expect plenty of “health nuts” here who bicycle to work, eat organic foods and exercise daily. Wait, that’s not nutty at all, that’s smart! Boulder is known for its parks (56 in all) and for its miles of hiking trail.

Despite the presence of bicycles, there still are methods of fast public transportation. Residents and visitors alike can take advantage of the Regional Transportation District and the American Automobile Association. There are also car rentals, taxi companies (such as the Boulder Yellow Cab) bicycle rental shops like University Bicycles and Full Cycle.

All in all, Boulder is a very accommodating city, one just as concerned with long-term comfort as short-term pleasures.
