Boulder: Finding a Balance Between Your Work and Your Life Although many Colorado natives would prefer we kept it a secret, our state is home to beautiful landscapes, more than 300 days of sunshine, world-class skiing, and abundant outdoor activities. There is no other state that has both the highest sand dunes in North America and 54 mountain peaks over 14,000 feet. Boulder is a picturesque college town famous for its pedestrianfriendly streets, its environmentally minded people, its nationally acclaimed restaurants, and its relaxed attitude. Because of these attributes, the city attracts a significant number of scientists and innovators. Boulder and nearby Denver are large enough to attract bigticket events and festivals – and small enough that you can get a ticket to see one. Sports fans have numerous options from professional teams to recreational leagues of all kinds. Being in Boulder immerses you in a fusion of worldclass intellect with a community that values and enjoys the environment. We invite you to join us in this unique place and see what it has to offer you.
