Live in Boulder, Colorado
What is it Like to Live in Boulder, Colorado?

Boulder, Colorado is a very eclectic mix of people, influenced primarily by the University of Colorado in Boulder. Though the city started back in 1876, it has steadily progressed into a “modern” city, one defined by college life, healthy living and lots of outdoor activity. The college offers 150 academic programs to over 30,000 students. Since the total population of Boulder is just over 90,000 you can see how important student life is to the community. In fact, 7,500 individuals are employed directly or indirectly because of the university.

Real Estate in Boulder, Colorado is always promising, even in the middle of a recession. House prices are typically high thanks to a thriving economy as well as a “Danish Plan”, which is a residential growth control ordinance. The average price of a home is above $300,000. There is a variety of building styles to choose from, including old age Victoria style, condo-style or an energy-efficient suburban family house.

Jobs in the area are science and research based. Besides the university, other important organizations like IBM and the National Institute of Standards and Technology are located here. The median income of the city is $57,231 a year. The scientifically based economy is assisted by local businesses. Boulder has a nice mix of corporate names (Avis, Whole Foods, Barnes and Noble) as well as smaller businesses like University Bicycles (rentals) and King Soopers Supermarket, which also has a pharmacy.

Twenty Ninth Street and the Pearl Street Mall are both major shopping points in the city. The city is very big on art and events, so make plans to visit local festivals like Mahlerfest, the Boulder Kinetic Fest and the Colorado Shakespeare Festival.

All in all, Boulder stands out as one of Colorado’s healthiest and most outdoorsy cities. There are some 43,000 acres of open space in the city. It’s the kind of rural mixed with urban paradise that begs for a bike ride rather than a car pickup. Come experience life in Boulder and feel alive!
