Boulder is a very unique place - lots of liberal idealism. People live in a somewhat unrealistic world where everyone is equal, everything will be fair if you just fight hard enough, and a gallon of milk is supposed to cost $5. The crime is relatively low, marijuana and drug use is extremely high, and the public school system is fantastic. Architecture and art are incredible; social scene and activities are plentiful - there is always something to do or something to see.

Pearl Street Mall and all of Downtown Boulder is extremely fun, hip, and fast-paced. However, this is also where almost all of the homeless population resides. The Boulder Reservoir has a great swim beach and is fantastic for killing a few hours during the summer. Hiking trails abound, Chatauqua Park is a great option with trails of varying difficulty for any hiker.
