Good neighborhoods in Boulder for young professionals?

My fiance and I intend to move to Boulder soon, but we know little about the personalities of the different neighborhoods.  Could anyone fill me in?  We're especially interested in walkable neighborhoods, and a well-rounded range of neighbors, perhaps including young professionals/grad students, families, and retirees.  I'd so appreciate your input!

Hello BoulderSoon,
Those do sound like questions best asked in a telephone interview or face-to-face meeting. That description fits a lot of Boulder. Of course, closer to campus you will find a mix of grads, families and young professionals. And, that campus is quite large.

Best,

Hi BoulderSoon:  Congratulations for your decision to move to Boulder in the near future.  My family moved here in 1996 and we have never looked back. We cannot imagine living anywhere else! Without knowing you personally it is hard to offer really valid advice about neighborhoods. So let me offer a few resources:

Here is a detailed map of Boulder neighborhoods to get you started: http://tinyurl.com/mfabfe

South Boulder has a Yahoo group, but it seems quiet now: http://groups.yahoo.com/g ... sobotalk/

You can get the flavor of Newlands at: http://newlandsgreenlands.com/

You can get "Walkscores" here: http://www.walkscore.com/ ... O/Boulder

Based on your description, Boulder is an ideal city for you.  You will find most neighborhoods to be pretty eclectic.  People get passionate about their neighborhood, usually based on access to recreation, mountains, favorite shops, and views.  I can provide you with the walk scores for neighborhoods and listings and would be happy to create a personal website for you and your fiance, which will allow you to review, save, and organize listings.  You also get the latest properties that match your parameters on the day they appear on the market, as well as price reductions, etc., so you will be positioned to act before anyone else when you find the right property. Welcome to the neighborhood! Patrick

By now you probably know some answers to your question. There are many great neighborhoods for young professionals. I could have a conversation with you to make it easier if you would like to call. There are varying price ranges, some older cool neighborhoods and many newer ones. The Peloton is a newer condo complex near the 29th St. mall. "NoBo" is the North Boulder new urban neighborhood. South Boulder has some great homes, many of which have been remodeled (ranches where they "popped the top". These are some examples - and there are more, all of which are walkable. If you are still searching, call or email me.
