( — March 26, 2014) Boulder, Colorado — There is no town that offers as much diversity to so many people as Boulder does. Nestled at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is the perfect place for outdoor lovers. Known for its outdoors, residents of Boulder are ranked as having one of the healthiest lifestyles in America. No matter what the weather is, people are always enjoying the outdoors; whether it be running, biking, walking, hiking or climbing.


Boulder Creek Path is one of the most popular places to recreate in Boulder. This miles-long path sits on the banks of the Boulder Creek. Along this path you will find beautiful trails for walking, running and biking. In the summer months, many parts of the creek nearby become popular for swimming, and even tubing, down the creek. The Pearl Street Mall is yet another fantastic spot to shop, socialize and take in the sights and sounds of musicians, artists, vendors and more.


In addition to the appeal of being able to spend so much time outside, each neighborhood of Boulder

has its own unique personality. The Holiday neighborhood is eco-friendly, community-minded, with a mix of neighborhood businesses, and public parks. Many people find it to be an ideal place to live, work, play, and learn in Boulder. The housing in Holiday is very large and offers different choices. The neighborhood features traditional, single-family homes, townhomes and condos. In addition, co-housing options are also available, where you are able to live upstairs and run your business downstairs. Single family homes in Holiday typically run around $600,000 while townhomes and condos in the Holiday community are currently averaging around $350,000.



Another fantastic neighborhood in Boulder is the beautiful, Green Meadows neighborhood.

Green Meadows is a small neighborhood just north of downtown. Its location makes it perfect to walk or bike downtown to all the shops, restaurants, and other activities Boulder has to offer. It is also ideally located to all the trails, which are great for walks, hiking, or biking. Green Meadows homes were built in the 50’s and 60’s so they offer a lot of charm compared to brand new homes. Not only is the location a great selling point, the homes in Green Meadows are relatively affordable. A home in Green Meadows currently has an average price tag of around $480,000.


Not only are the neighborhoods in Boulder top notch, so are the school systems. One of

Colorado’s top-ranked secondary schools is Peak to Peak Charter School, located within

the Boulder Valley School District. Bear Creek Elementary School, Douglass Elementary School, Eisenhower Elementary School, and High Peaks Elementary School are all high ranked schools in the Boulder area. Boulder is also home to the University of Colorado-Boulder. CU-Boulder is the only school in the Rocky Mountain Region that made it into Association of American Universities, which is an elite group of 34 research universities. The university is also recognized as having highly ranked graduate programs through the College of Engineering and Applied Science and School of Education.
