Where is the Boulder Valley?
The Boulder Valley sits between Boulder at the base of the foothills to the west, and Erie on edge of the High Plains to the east overlooking the valley, Broomfield on the southern border and Longmont on the north end. Each community features excellent views of the Rockies and the Boulder Valley.
Part of Boulder’s story are the surrounding towns that have expanded in the past few decades due to their small town feel, careful planning of growth, proximity to both Boulder and Denver, excellent views, great school districts and affordable real estate in comparison to Boulder.
Longmont is a bustling city rivaling Boulder in size and growth in technology companies with breathtaking views. Niwot is a historically agricultural town to the northeast of Boulder offering excellent views of the foothills and Longs Peak.
Broomfield sits along the southern edge of this valley and is the northernmost of the Denver suburbs, offering a great location for commuting between the Denver metro and Boulder areas. No matter what you’re looking for in your next home, there is something for everyone!
People move to the Boulder Valley looking for a new lifestyle.
Maybe its the 300 days of sunshine, the active culture, a lower cost of living than the coasts, being surrounded by nature, a hub of entrepreneurship and innovation or a slower pace where you can take a mental health day to hike or ski…the Boulder Valley is the perfect place to find that change.

Boulder Valley Climate
The Boulder Area climate is typical of the Front Range, with warm sunny summer days, low humidity and cool to cold winters with periodic mild spells….It depends on where you are from whether you think it’s cold or not. Clients from California think the winters are chilly, but New Yorkers and Midwesterners think our winters are warm.
The brunt of the cold spells tend to miss the area as the mountains provide some shielding from the worst of the cold weather. Summer rain usually rolls off the mountains most afternoons for a few minutes to cool everyone off. The thunderstorms can be occasionally heavy and the eastern part of the valley can offer epic views of these storms brewing along the high plains.
Large or persistent snow accumulations are uncommon, but occasional heavy snows, particularly in fall and spring, can stick around for a few days before our intense sun can melt it all away. First freeze is usually early October, last is late April and periods of extreme temperatures only last a few days.
With our “300+ days of sunshine” you’re sure to find it’s an amazing place to live!
