Boulder, Colorado Homes | Boulder Real Estate Agent
Boulder, Colorado is a quirky, medium sized city nestled right up against the foothills. Among many other things, it’s known for its free-thinking, counter-cultural spirit and eclectic residents, the progressive-minded and politically engaged people it attracts, and the natural beauty of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks, which Boulderites have fought so hard to protect. It’s also known for the über fit and competitive distance runners, cyclists, triathletes, trail runners, mountain bikers, skiers and snowboarders who call this place home, the picturesque man-made landmarks like Pearl Street Mall and unique houses that harken back to all different styles and time periods.
The City of Boulder’s system of trails, parks and open space is extensive. Each year 5.3 million people visit the 151 miles of hiking trails and 45,000 acres owed and managed by the city alone! On top of that, Boulder County owes and maintains an additional 110 miles of trails and 35,000 acres of useable open space and the National Center for Atmospheric Research or NCAR (you can get there by going west on Table Mesa until you can’t go any further), which is funded by the federal government, makes available to hikers, cyclists and the general public the trails and road on a substantial plot of land abutting Boulder’s iconic Flatirons. This system of trails and public lands are beloved by all who experience them. Boulderites have the luxury of begin able to, within only minutes, escape the pressures of daily life to refuge of the wilderness.
While the draw of the great outdoors cannot be understated, the man-made buildings and spaces in and around Boulder compliment, rather than oppose, the natural beauty of the city’s backdrop.

While strolling down the pedestrian mall, people watching and browsing at the fun and unique shops, you can still catch a glimpse of the mountains.
