You never hear people talking about the Wonderland Hills neighborhood. Perhaps it gets overshadowed by the fancy neighborhood to the south — Newlands — or perhaps the residents of Wonderland Hills just know how to keep a secret. Whatever the reason, this neighborhood offers residents quiet living, large lots and easy access to the Wonderland Lake.
History: Wonderland Hills got it’s start in the early 70’s as a new high-end development. It was designed to be a “luxury” suburb of Boulder that provided proximity to both the foothills and the vibrant downtown scene…mountain living without all that pesky driving.
Look at that scenery there, will you? That’s what you’ll see if you’re ready to call Boulder “home.”
If you’re moving to Boulder to live the life you’ve always imagined, you’re going to need some temporary digs to call home while you do your house hunting. Boulder hotels are-a-plenty, though it can be a challenge on some high activity weekends to get your first choice in hotel.
Martin Acres is a fantastically convenient and surprisingly affordable Boulder neighborhood. With easy access to U.S. 36, a major RTD bus route and lots of bike paths, living here means you get anywhere you want to go with little hassle.
History: This neighborhood started out as a Boulder suburb in the 1950s. With the completion of the Denver-Boulder Turnpike, the population of the area started growing. What first began as a neighborhood of small family housing quickly turned into a college rental hotbed. These days, you’ll find a nice mix of student rentals with more and more families coming back to call this neighborhood home.

People love this classic Boulder neighborhood. Wedged in between Mapleton and Wonderland Hills, the Newlands neighborhood is a beautiful one that officially includes North Boulder park and it’s baseball diamonds, playgound and sheltered picnic areas. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that Newlands backs up to the foothills and offers homeowners Mount Sanitas as a backdrop.
History: This neighborhood was originally developed in 1871 by the Newland family. It started as a large orchard and as time went on, was divided up for sale. Many lots in the Newlands neighborhood still bear the apple trees that the Newland family planted many years ago. In 1922, Boulder Community Hospital opened and, located in the middle of the Newlands, presented itself as an anchor for the surrounding neighborhood.
Whittier is one of the most established, and most desirable, neighborhoods in town. Its vibrant mix of older single family homes and student housing, combined with the revitalization of East Pearl Street, have made this neighborhood a walker’s dream come true.
History: Located adjacent to Pearl Street, it’s easy to see why early settlers chose to build their houses in this neighborhood. With large tree-lined streets and large Victorian houses to match, there is a friendly neighborhood feeling that dates back to another time. Whittier was originally established in 1859 and Boulder’s history plays a big part in the neighborhood. You can see many designated historic houses and even more that have been fully restored to their original grandeur.
Chautauqua is much more than just the iconic park at the base of Boulder’s most famous rock structures. It’s also the gorgeous sprawling neighborhood surrounding the historic park. Chautaqua is one of the oldest neighborhoods in town, provides ample views of the Flatirons, and is within walking distance of all of the amenities of the Colorado Chautauqua Association.
It’s the neighborhood that borders CU to the west. Filled with big trees, Victorian homes, and hilly streets, University Hill boasts some of the most beautiful architecture to be found in Boulder. And let’s not forget the fraternities and sororities that also make their homes in this neighborhood. Situated just south of downtown Boulder, The Hill, as it’s commonly called, is an interesting mix of college students and families, combining the best (and worst) of late-night parties and early-rising babies for the past century.
While North Boulder is less than two miles away from downtown, it feels much further. Quiet residential streets give it a distinct neighborhood feeling, and yet a growing retail and restaurant scene make NoBo (as it’s called by those in the know) one of the best places in Boulder to be right now. There’s everything here from organic grocers to paved trails and parks-a-plenty.
