“I keep trying to move out of Boulder,” said my friend Micah, citing the high cost of living here plus congestion problems. “But I just have not found a place that can offer all that Boulder can.”
Indeed, Boulder offers world-class cycling, skiing, and rock climbing, along with one of the nation’s hippest pedestrian malls and perhaps the fittest population in the country. It also has been named the healthiest town in the country, the best city for runners, the town with the highest percentage of people having a bachelor’s degree (an astounding 67%), and the most dog-friendly town, as well as the Denver metro area being voted one of the best towns for singles. At least from a city standpoint (neglecting scenery), this is my favorite town in all of Colorado. More impressions coming soon. In the meantime, you can check out these photos.
