According to National Geographic best selling author, Dan Buettner, Boulder, Colorado is the happiest city in the US. Based on Buettner's research, "Bolstered by a sense of community, access to nature, sustainable urban development and preservation policies, and perhaps even that clean mountain air, Boulderites overwhelmingly feel active and productive every day."
Located within a 45 minute drive from Denver, Boulder offers a quality of life second to none. With quick access to nature trails and outdoor recreation, Boulder is nestled against the Rocky Mountains and provides everything a Boulderite would need to live with "pleasure, pride and purpose" according to Buettner.
