    Welcome to Boulder, Colorado!

    Cresting the hill on Highway 36 into Boulder and gazing down at the red rooftops of the University of Colorado, the dramatic sandstone slabs of the Flatirons and the snow-capped peaks beyond, it's easy to see why this intriguing town has been dubbed "the city nestled between the mountains and reality."

    Just 30 minutes from Denver, tucked into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, acres of vast open space roll into Boulder's quaint cityscape. Come explore pine-scented trails, taste the flavors of "America's Foodiest Town," tour 20 craft breweries, stroll historic Pearl Street and soak up this creative community's laid-back lifestyle.
