Boulder has been named 'the best place to live in the United States' the last 5 years in a row, including the recent Gallup poll.
Only about 10% of the vacation home listings on this VRBO website are located in the mountains. The rest are in or near the city, lacking the privacy and serenity found in the mountains.
During the summer-time, the temperature in the mountains generally is about 15 degrees cooler than in Boulder, so when it is 85 in Boulder . . .

About the owner: I am a retired judge/attorney who moved to the Rocky Mountains of Boulder in 1994 for semi-retirement with my yellow lab 'Cassidy' after conducting a world-wide search for the ideal place to live. The vast mountain ranges - the great variety of activities -- sports and cultural events of the University of Colorado at Boulder - easily accessible Big City activities of Denver - breath-taking mountain views - friendly people - total privacy in my mountain retreat - these things do not allow me to live anywhere else in this whole wide world.
