Boulder | Real Estate Agent in Boulder, Colorado
Boulder, Colorado is a city that needs no introduction. I’ll do one anyway but it doesn’t need one. Boulder 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 from the 1960s to the present, the progressive-minded and politically engaged people it attracts, the natural beauty of Boulder Mountain Parks like Chautauqua Park, Mount Sanitas and Flagstaff Mountain, the über fit and competitive distance runners (ushered in by none other than Frank Shorter), 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 alongside others that are aggressively modern, computer programmers, entrepreneurs and, above all else, the wanderlust, curiosity and fearlessness that embodies the people who are drawn to this unique place.
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.
