By Michael Hughes    January 19, 2010

Boulder, a unique city located on the footsteps of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder County. Boulder is a short drive from Denver. With a population of nearly 112,000 residents (city and outlying areas). Boulder has beautiful scenery, and is one of the best relocation cities in the U.S. Cultural, business, educational and employment needs are all in this vibrant city. The economy is solid, and will only get better in the up coming years. For its’ size it has the 8th lowest unemployment rate in the U.S. The average household income for its families is about $85,000. While the average house value is estimated at $366,000. These numbers combined means owning a house in Boulder is a sound investment.

In addition to many small, entrepreneurial businesses, major employers include companies and  research laboratories such as the soon to be ConocoPhillips, IBM, Ball Aerospace, the National Institute for Standards and Technology and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Adding to Boulder’s progressive spirit is the University of Colorado, the academic and cultural anchor of the community.

Boulder Valley residents experience four unique seasons with over 300+ days of sun. The city’s panoramic views, open space & greenbelt system serves as a buffer to preserve its picturesque setting.

Boulder boasts some of the best restaurants in the area. This robust community has more than 100 restaurants catering to all palates; Haute Cuisine, Italian, Mexican, Tex-Mex, American, and Continental foods along with many deli’s and cafe’s are some of the choices.

Boulder has always been one of the best places in the entire country to raise a family. With a low crime rate, the streets of Boulder are safe and secure. The public education system is extremely solid. The Boulder Valley Re 2 is a great school district.

Due to the cities’ historic, classic and  eclectic architecture a warm and friendly feeling is projected. Newly constructed projects and housing starts have continued Boulders relocation allure. Boulder is truly an ideal relocation option.
