Boulder, CO is a beautiful, super-hip, special small city of about 100,000 residents nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains just 35 miles from Denver. This city has an abundance of unique and diverse businesses, green-energy companies, and many natural product retailers and technological resources.
Boulder's natural beauty and nationally acclaimed alternative transportation options (one example is award-winning Bike-Friendly Status) are unmatched. This city has style, substance and character.
Boulder is home to two Universities, the University of Colorado (or CU) and Naropa University, a secular, Buddhist-oriented school. There are several government scientific institutions: NIST, (National Institute of Standards and Technology) home of the atomic clock that defines everyone's time, NCAR, (National Center for Atmospheric Research) and NOAA, (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). Pearl Street Mall is filled with street performers and fantastic shopping and dining.
