Boasting the highest concentration of manufacturing and high-tech companies in Colorado, Boulder County is both expansive and diverse. The area features everything from the national treasure of Rocky Mountain National Park to fertile farmland and one of the nation’s foremost centers of research laboratories. Situated northwest of Denver, the county claims the Continental Divide as its western border. The eastern part of Boulder County features rolling plains that rise dramatically into the higher elevation of alpine splendor.
Offering both rural and urban settings, Boulder County appeals to a wide cross-section of newcomers. Young professionals, couples, retirees, and families in all stages are drawn to its unparalleled quality of life. The cities of Boulder and Longmont claim the lion’s share of the county’s population, followed by the towns of Lafayette and Louisville. Wonderful small towns and unincorporated villages dot the landscape, providing a housing selection as varied as the terrain.
Healthcare facilities are top-rated and highly accessible, including Avista Adventist Hospital in Louisville, Longmont United Hospital in Longmont, and Boulder Community Hospital (BCH). BCH has been named one of the top hospitals in Colorado for treating heart attacks and maintains one of the state’s largest open-heart surgery programs. Also acclaimed is the sports medicine center, attracting patients from across the nation to its unique mix of performance enhancement and rehabilitation services.
Educational excellence throughout Boulder County is positively impacted by the considerable influence of the University of Colorado (CU) in Boulder. St. Vrain Valley RE 1J and Boulder Valley RE 2 school districts cooperatively administer a first-rate education from pre-kindergarten through high school. Charter schools and private schools expand the educational alternatives, while higher education is available just beyond the front doorstep at CU. A wide selection of public and private colleges and universities are easily accessible through the transportation efficiencies of the Boulder Turnpike.
As Boulder has matured over the decades from a “college town” into a dynamic metropolis in its own right, the caliber and quantity of urban amenities enjoyed by county residents has risen sharply. Other developing and growing cities like Lafayette and Longmont have worked diligently to keep pace with Boulder’s lead, adding impressive recreational facilities and supporting active arts organizations. Without a doubt, the influence of CU has enriched the entire area by stimulating the desire for excellence and filling the calendar with exciting events and activities.
