Located 25 miles northwest of Denver, Boulder is becoming more like a suburb of Denver as the Front Range grows and connects communities. Many people choose to live in Boulder and commute to Denver, whether via bus, carpool or light rail via the Westminster “B” light rail.

Home to the University of Colorado, iconic Pearl Street Mall, and the Flatirons rock formations that provide Boulder’s dramatic backdrop, this town is a popular place to call home. Nestled against the foothills, this picturesque community appeals to a wide variety of people, especially outdoor enthusiasts. An endless number of trails erupt in, around and through the center of town, along creeks and into the foothills. Cyclists enjoy challenging rides up the four canyons — Boulder, Sunshine, Four Mile and Lefthand — located to the west of Boulder.
