Thinking about Moving to Boulder

by arrege

Hi all!

My wife and I have been looking at possbily moving to Boulder for 9-12 months starting Sept/Oct 2007. We live in the LA area and are looking for a change...atleast in the weather, traffic and spiritual energy.

My wife had been thru Boulder about 10 years ago and had fond memories of it...and I am sure the city has changed a bit since then. We are both in our 30s and are self employed (work from home). We do not have any schools and traffic are not a big issue.

I wanted to ask you a few of questions:

1) Does Boulder still have a lot of 'health/organic' type restaurants for healthy eaters?

2) Are there parts of Boulder that cater to an age group of 30+ year old professionals. Places that are quiet, safe and yet reasonably close to restaurants, shopping, Whole Foods etc?

3) How far is the Denver airport from Boulder? Is it a fairly large International airport?

4) Are there parts of the city that we should avoid...too close to College kids, too close to freeway, nasty parts of town etc?

Please understand that in LA, we have to add about 1 hour of drive time to go anywhere...I am hoping this is NOT the case in Boulder

Thank you in advance for your reply.

Boulder has a lot of what you're looking for. It also, being a college town, has students. It's about 45 minutes from DIA, which is (in my opinion) a great International airport to go in and out of.

If you're both telecommuting, you might also look at Evergreen. It will be a little farther from the Airport though.

While I am not from Boulder, I was there last year. I am from So Cal as well, and I loved it when we visited Boulder. Has tons of college kids and college kids items though....not sure if I want to move there because I do have kids. But since you dont, go for it. Being from LA, the prices will still seem like a bargain and there is plenty of scenery and nature centered things to do. If you get bored, you can always travel into Denver and see the urban life. I have noticed though, when a driver from Denver puts on his brakes-- he means it. They slam them on! ANd they complain about CA drivers! Just a little FYI...

Travel Tips for Boulder

Well, MUST is a pretty heavy...

by Teledude

Well, MUST is a pretty heavy term. There's really nothing you MUST do but this is one of my favorites: In Spring, after the colors have come back to the trees and grass, go to Chautaqua Park and take a short (or long) hike on the trails above. The view of the Flatirons (our ubiquitous mountain backdrop) is most often photographed from here. The park itself is small but pleasant. This is a great place for a picnic or a hike up into the foothills to watch climbers try their skill on the Flatirons themselves. There are many trails that lead up into the foothills from here. Beware though, it does get pretty crowded during the afternoons. Go early and you'll enjoy the peace and freshness of a real Rocky Mountain morning. Well my fondest is probably one of my firsts. Driving west into Boulder on U.S. 36 from the east. Driving west on 36 in the late spring you can see the white-capped mountains from some distance. As you get closer, you don't realize there is a city nestled right at the gateway to all that beauty. You know it's there but you can't see it. As you come up a long hill and gaze at the mountains rising from the plains, you eventually crest the hill. It drops before you and the entire Boulder Valley (not a true valley) stretches out before you. And you think 'I am going to be living there?!' From this vantage point, the outdoor recreation options that are quintessential Boulder finally become apparent. It is an outdoor lovers paradise!

Fleece vests

by CO-Chad

When radio host Peter Sagal visited Boulder the second time, he joked that he needed to replace his vest, made from "the wild polyesters that roam the flatirons."

Vests, especially fleece vests, are a frequent part of the local costume. At times it seems like something of an affectation - certainly Boulderites are not above such things. And a fleece vest is at once high-tech and hippie-retro (very Boulder). However, in a city where daytime and evening temperatures fluctuate widely, and physical activity is highly valued, the vest also has a certain practical value. Like the expensive sunglasses that protect your eyes from excessive UV at high altitudes, vests might be a practical affectation.

Packing List

by Rasta_Rob

Be prepared for anything, weather-wise. The saying in Boulder is, 'if you don't like the weather, just wait 15 minutes!' You can wear shorts in January, or it can snow in May -- you really never know what to expect. But, no matter what the weather, you can count on the sun coming out again soon.

Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park!

by xxgirasolexx

Just a 45 minute drive from Boulder, you can visit a great mountain town and see a national park as well. Just remember, if driving on mountain roads freaks you out, please stay in the far left lane.

by mirandal

North Boulder has a variety of restaurants and great hiking. Lake Brainard is my favorite spot, ask anyone how to get there. Also there's a great restaurant in North Boulder called Gadabi Cucina (sp?) that is amazing Italian food.
