Some additional reasons to move here:

A research hub

The Environmental Studies Program at the University of Colorado Boulder is situated within a vibrant research community. The program is based in the new Sustainability, Environment and Energy Complex, which also houses the Sustainability Innovation Lab at Colorodo (SILC), the North American hub of Future Earth, and a plethora of other environment-, development-, and sustainability-oriented programs and groups. Boulder is home to NCAR and UCAR, and to many sustainability-minded people: non-profits, entrepreneurs, and farmers.

An outdoor paradise

Boulder sits at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. There are hundreds of miles of trails within the city's Open Space and Mountain Parks alone; the stunning Indian Peaks Wilderness, Golden Gate Canyon State Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park are less than an hour away; there's great rock-climbing just out of town in Eldorado Canyon State Park; and Eldora Mountain Resort is 30 minutes away, with a dozen other ski resorts (including Vail, Aspen, and Breckenridge) less than two hours away.

Food, drink, music, and more

Boulder has a reputation for great food. Local and farm-to-fork options include the farmer's market, Bramble & Hare and Black Cat restaurants, The Kitchen, and Leaf. The striking Dushanbe Teahouse is right downtown. The city boasts dozens of craft breweries, including the Mountain Sun pubs and Sanitas Brewing Co. The amazing Red Rocks Amphitheatre is in Morrison, 45 mins away. Need more? Check here.
