ReMax Nexus BBB Business Review

 

On November 7, 1861, legislation was passed making way for the state university to be located in Boulder, and on September 20, 1875, the first cornerstone was laid for the first building on the C.U. campus. The university officially opened on September 5, 1877.

 

Boulder's first settlers came to hunt for gold, but today, it's a casually sophisticated town looks and feels very little like a mining camp. Tucked into the foothills below a rock formation known as The Flatirons, it's close to Denver geographically, but worlds apart in attitude.

 

The Naropa University, the nation's only Buddhist University, is located here, as is the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts. Complementing these schools is the flagship campus of the University of Colorado with approximately 30,000 students.

 

The city was named the best place in the nation to indulge in outdoor sports by outside magazine. You’ll find 45,000 acres of designated space to hike or ride a bike, climb a mountain, kayak a river, walk along a stream or fish. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are popular in winter, as is skiing and snowboarding at nearby Eldora Mountain Resort.

 

Rated number one sports town in America.
