“Do good and good will come to you” could easily be the mantra of the foothills town believed to be named for the boulder strewn creek ambling through it. Boulder is the chosen home to several wonderful innovations that have become part of not only our American life across the continent but “the good life” across the globe.
One can readily imagine oneself lounging in front of a perfect Rocky Mountain view while relaxing in comfortable Crocs, enjoying sips of a heavenly Celestial Seasonings blend between licks of delicious Glacier Homemade Ice cream. These are just a few of the companies along with many others, who choose to call Boulder their Headquarters home. Alongside several prestigious science centers you’ll also find the sprawling campus of the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Without doubt, this is a college town, but influenced by such a unique mix it has become so much more and most of that, indefinable. Attempting to label Boulder might only result in causing one to miss out on the full beauty and enjoy the full effects of its charm. The folks that flocked here came for many different reasons, but a good guess would be that all of them started with a desire to live amongst the peaceful tranquility of the Rocky Mountain foothills they discovered upon a visit here.
Somehow it all works quite well together, this mix of large residential areas, college campus, cultural milieu and business center because the ambience created fuses to form one prevailing atmosphere…the blend of success that emphasizes quality of life respecting all lifestyle choices.
The great outdoors is a main lifestyle and staple of Boulder activity which includes every conceivable sport, leisure and outdoors enterprise you can think to engage in. Walking, hiking and bike trails are built with purpose and heavily utilized by resident and visitor alike. As one visitor gushed “I love bringing my dogs here for a good romp, and the tubing is some of the best ever.”
The city abounds with a plethora of public parks and no visit to the city would be complete without spending the better part of a day at the Pearl Street Mall.
Sidewalk artists, street performers and great shopping – what’s not to love? Hungry visitors will find a myriad of food choices both at the Mall and scattered about the city.
