North Boulder (NoBo)
North Boulder has been recently redeveloped to embrace New Urbanism. This unique style of neighborhood structuring features shops, cafes, art studios, offices, and homes all in the same blocks, often occupying the same buildings.
Many of the larger shops are right along Broadway, but North Boulder’s mixed-use neighborhoods provide a nice selection of high-end restaurants, small specialty shops, and a variety of snacking places. Strolling through the area, you will find pleasant landscaping, community gardens, a small park, and an array of small studios. The beauty of this style of developing is that you never know when you’re going to stumble upon a shopping find to make your day. If exploration is your style of shopping, this is one place to put on your list of places to go.
A short distance from the North Boulder shopping area is the Foothills Community Park, which has a great picnic area, new playground equipment, and easy access to great hiking trails.
North Boulder is right off of Highway 7, which will take you to Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park. There are also some beautiful canyon drives branching off from Highway 7 leading up to the Peak-to-Peak Highway.
