Boulder Quick Facts
A Traveler's Guide to BoulderBoulder is a city that is located in the central region of the US state of Colorado. Colorado is located in the western region of the United States along the Rocky Mountains. Boulder is the seat of government for Boulder County and is the eleventh largest city in the state of Colorado. It is located almost 25 miles north of Denver. The city became a famous destination for hippies during the late 20th century counter culture movement in the United States. It is also the home of the University of Colorado, the largest such university in the state. English is the primary spoken and written language in Boulder.
The area was first settled by Europeans in 1858 when gold was discovered nearby. The city was originally called "Boulder City" because of the large boulders in the area. It was finally incorporated in 1871 and the name was changed to Boulder. The Boulder Railroad Depot was constructed along the railways and soon more and more people moved to the city. In 1861 the state selected Boulder to be the home of the state's primary university. The campus was constructed soon thereafter and the University of Colorado has been a key part of the city every since.
The University of Colorado Buffaloes compete in the NCAA Division 1 Big 12 conference in over 20 men's and women's sports.
The natural beauty of the area is spectacular and the city has constructed thousands of acres of public parks and outdoor recreational facilities. Some of the world's most famous hiking trails are in Boulder.
