Review of Boulder, Colorado

Expensive and requires liking a unique culture
Star Rating - 6/29/2021
Outside of the university, Boulder had a very distinctive "wealthy hippy" feel. A lot of alternative medicine and a matching ethos. This is changing some among my generation (millennials) as Google and other companies have brought more of a northern California feel (and prices) to the town.

It is ridiculously expensive, I am a software developer and can barely afford a house here. If you want somewhere a little less weird and a little less expensive look at Louisville, Lafayette, Superior and Broomfield.
