Residents and visitors to Boulder, Colorado are drawn to abundant outdoor activities and hanging with like-minded humans. Boulder’s commitment to sustainability, wellness, and green living further contributes to its character, with eco-friendly initiatives, a thriving Boulder Farmers Market, and local farm-to-table eateries.
The town’s vibrant arts and cultural offerings, diverse culinary experiences, and pedestrian-friendly streets, like the iconic Pearl Street Mall, create a lively, creative, and welcoming vibe.
The University of Colorado (1876) and numerous research institutions infuse the town with a strong academic bent, fostering innovation and a thriving startup scene. Naropa University founded by Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa has located here; Diamond Heart developed by A.H. Almaas has its Colorado center here and meets at the Ridhwan Foundation. You get the idea. Personal growth is a priority here. Boulder grew when the railroad came through town, and the people it attracts have kept growing. — Kim Grant
