Boulder, CO insider tips?

    My son is moving to Boulder for school (not at CU).
    Anyone familiar with the city and environs who can steer him toward a good neighborhood?
    He's not looking to live on The Hill (Party Central not his scene).

    How is the traffic in Boulder? Commuting from the 'burbs a possibility, we think.

    Any/all insights, including warnings and places to visit as we apartment hunt most welcome.

    Thanks so much.

      We went to Boulder about ten years ago and stayed in a hotel right outside the city.  The location seemed perfect for getting into the heart of Boulder (where I took a class) and Denver (for the mainstream workers).  We also found this a perfect location for a great nearby park and a great starting point for Estes Park (which I highly recommend visiting).

      Some of the food menus were a bit exotic for our taste but the restaurants had a good selection.  One thing I will mention is that it snowed while we were there and that was September.

      Good luck, I am certain you will like it.

      Boulder rocks.
      Wait. Is that redundant?
      Thanks, PD.
      I hope to get at least one hub out of the adventure!
