Moving to Boulder to transfer schools and enjoy life.

by JohnnyMajors

Im going to be transferring to University of Colorado at Boulder and switching National Guard units come June. I was wondering how hard it will be to find an apartment in Boulder and also how hard it will be to find a part time job. Im also a singer/songwriter, will playing acoustic music be easy to do on weekends?

I would love to talk to someone one on one about Boulder if possible.

Thanks a lot!

Josh

RE: Moving to Boulder to transfer schools and enjoy life.

It's actually pretty tough to get a place in Boulder, especially near campus, and they're almost always over-priced. Like most college towns, you need to get in well advance of the start of the Fall semester or a couple of months after it.
There are plenty of open mics and coffee shops around town where you could do acoustic stuff. Or you could just set up on Pearl Street Mall with the other outdoor artists (this is during the summer, of course).

Hi Josh. I just returned from Boulder and will also be moving there in April. I'm interested to hear how your search goes. I did ask a few locals about rent and they said the average in Boulder is about $800 for a 1 bedroom. I wouldn't say there were tons of apartments for rent, but I certainly saw some signs for rentals.

As far as acoustic music, there is a coffee shop on Pearl St, The Laughing Goat. Also there are several pubs, Conor O'neils for one. If you want, you can always play for tips at the Pearl Street mall.

good luck and let me know how it goes.

Travel Tips for Boulder

Take a stroll along the Pearl...

by flatironvws

Take a stroll along the Pearl Street mall, if only to say you've done it. Summer evenings are the best, with lots of buskers. I grew up in south Boulder, near Viele Lake. Some of my best memories involve lying on my back in the green grass of the park next to the lake, gazing up at the puffy white clouds, absorbing the sounds and scents of summer.

Did I mention the views of Bear Mountain are breathtaking?

find the deer

by shohman

One morning I woke up and looked out my window to see a deer looking back at me. I quicly grabbed my camera and went outside. I saw there were three, a buck and two fawns. They looked at me then went back to foraging. From less than 20 feet away, I watched these deer for 20 minutes before they moved on. I only wish my camera took a better shot, If you look real close, you can see the buck's eyes.

Enjoy Yourself & Avoid Embarassing Rescues

by julesk

Bring good hiking boots. Sneakers are not good enough. It is very painful limping down from a hike with a sprained ankle. It is humiliating to be rescued by 25 overly enthusiastic boulder rescue volunteers.

It goes from hot to cold here very quickly. Wear Layers: You want capilene, light or heavy weight or a similar fabric that wicks away moisture while keeping you warm. It is also helpful to have a layer to repel snow or rain to go on top. Those nifty raincoats that cram into one pocket of the raincoat are handy. Sunblock is key here. We get amazing sunburns due to our altitude. Bug repellant is very important in late Spring and Summer because we have had West Nile problems with mosquitos. Use alot of both!

A good first aid kit is wise if you plan to hike much; it should have an ace bandage, antiseptic wipes and bandaids, ibuprofen and tylenol.. Typical injuries are road rash from crashing on mountain bikes, twisted ankles and bruises and scrapes from falls while climbing. You should have a below zero bag if you plan to camp. Even in July you can get a blizzard in the high country. Make sure you have a three season tent for most conditions just in case. A stove is good, of course. Bring something to treat water unless you plan to boil all your drinking water. Bring your compass and get good maps. If you plan to backcountry ski, for heaven sake don't let anybody rent you a goofy little touring package with the thin skis, flimsy pools and little elf boots. You will hate back country skiing for the rest of your life. Instead rent fatter skiis with metal edges so you can carve turns, get leather boots that don't have too much flex so you have ankle protection and support and can make turns, get telescoping poles if possible with self arrest grips if you plan to ski anything steep.

Rock climbing

by goingsolo

Rock climbing is very popular in Boulder. The three Flatirons formations have a series of routes for all abilities. Also well known is Eldorado Canyon State Park, about 5 miles outside of town, which has many climbing routes as well. Proper equipment is required. There are several outfitters in Boulder who rent equipment or provide guide services.

Boulder Falls

by leafmcgowan

"The Yosemite of Boulder Canyon" - Boulder Falls is a torrent of icy cold water that falls from the rock cliffs above dropping 66 feet, with a little ledge cave behind it. A spot famous with rock climbers this falls takes many climber and sightseer lives ... and doubles for one of the most romantic viewpoints in the Boulder area. Located just off Hwy CO-119, 11 miles west of the city of Boulder. Open dawn to dusk, Free. Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
