if you've never been to Boulder Colorado, you have no idea what you're missing imo. The surrounding areas are very nice as well, but Boulder is like the epicenter.
It is a college town, and there's tons of students there. Colorado University I'm told is a great school for science.
here's part of the university, not sure which building
I live in Oklahoma and just got back from a week in Boulder. A huge contrast between the two states is the people. You look around in Oklahoma and all you see is fat people. Fat people everywhere, just waddling about.
I just spent a week in Boulder, you know how many fat people I saw? uh, maybe like 2 or 3 max. Only 1 that I remember seeing. Instead of fat people waddling around with their mcdonalds bags, you know what you see there? People ****ing running around and biking around and **** like that. Every ****ing where, there's all these people biking and running and every body's like ****ing fit at ****. And because it's a college town, there's tons and ****ing tons of hot students around there, and the party scene is simply amazing. Like the whole town of Boulder is basically a party.
Here's a pic of Broadway and Pearl street. Broadway is like the main road down into downtown Boulder and it's right along the campus. Pearl street is an out door strip mall with many stores and restaurants, and it's a pretty big tourist destination and also a local hang out for homeless people.
The people you see in Boulder is mostly college students, wealthy older locals, or younger poor locals who are likely homeless. Hippies, you could say. If you're ever out in Boulder looking for some smoke, the ones to ask are the hippies, and the college students.
Now this brings me to marijuana. It's legal there for medicinal use. There are actually medical marijuana dispensaries in Boulder, and the rest of Colorado.
Some guy told me they have like 80 dispensaries in Boulder alone. It just blew my ****ing mind completely when I found out. I used to live in Colorado from 2003-2004 working for my uncle, and last visited around 2006 or 2007, and the scene is just totally different now cause those dispensaries didn't start popping up until the last couple of years.
Also, and this is no **** imo, you know how they have apartment guides and car and job guides there in 7-11 for free like along the news paper and magazine rack? Well they have ****ing medical marijuana guides there too. For ****ing srs. It's insane.
Another reason I'm planning on moving there is the music scene. The music scene in Boulder is very very good from what I hear and what I've seen. The music scene is good in Denver also, and just good in general in the state I think. I'm a musician and I'm planning on getting a band together and jamming around town.
One of the most popular venues in Boulder is the Fox which is on the Hill just off of Broadway.
The Hill is also a great place to score some smoke. But the scene is different and it's almost harder now to get some if you don't have a medical card. But really you just gotta be local and meet some people and shouldn't have problems with any of that. And the stuff you get there is excellent excellent quality. It's srsly medical grade stuff. Like connoisseur material. Amazingly good bud.
Another very important thing is the poker scene. From what I'm told, the Boulder/Denver/Louisville area has a healthy poker scene. My Uncle was telling me of a guy he knew who owned a restaurant and was also a professional poker player, and apparently he's part of a large community of players there who play at homes and restaurants and bars. And also there's casinos in Blackhawk Colorado which is just like 30 miles or so from Denver I believe, and I hear those games are very good as well.
Pics of houses? ahlkjadl;skjfaldkjsf. I haven't posted any pics of housing yet
I mean, come on. Do I even need to? Just look up there ^
Boulder Colorado is a sick sick ****ing place.
And yes, there are very nice houses there too.
Louisville, which is a more economical city for housing, is also very nice.
Colorado is just such a beautiful state and there are so many amazing things about it. It's like going to a ****ing rare paradise going to Boulder Colorado from Oklahoma. It's such a god damn pile of cow **** here. This state is ****ing ****.
Can't compare. not. even. close.
