BoulderLocated just 25 miles to the northwest of Denver, Boulder is truly a diverse and magical one-of-a-kind kind city dedicated to the enjoyment and preservation of the natural beauty that surrounds it.

Boulder was first settled in 1858 by gold seekers in what is called Settler’s Park today.

In 1967, Boulder became the first city in the United States to tax itself for funds necessary for the acquisition and preservation of open space. Today there are more than 45,000 acres of open space in and around Boulder that contains more than 300 miles of hiking and biking trails.
