ABOUT ERIE: Although rural in nature, Erie has seen a recent surge in new families, homes and businesses. With its proximity to both Denver and Boulder, the town provides an affordable middle ground for people working in either city. It’s also close to the Broomfield area’s high-tech corridor as well as the conveniences and cultural activities of neighboring LafayetteLouisville and Longmont. While in town, enjoy an amble down Briggs Street for a glimpse of historic downtown Erie and some of the best restaurants in town. If you like golfing head to the new championship golf course, Vista Ridge. The course, like the community, offers sweeping views of the Front Range during all 340 days of sunlight a year.

Travel Boulder – The Ultimate Guide

Travel Boulder is a fabulous magazine launched in early 2018 by well-known journalist and Colorado native Aimee Heckel.

The goal of Travel Boulder is to help long-time residents, those new to, and those visiting Boulder connect with the community and make the most of their everyday experience. They do this by creating what they refer to as the “ultimate guide” which connects you with local arts and culture, family-friendly activities, live music, events and festivals, restaurant guides and reviews, shopping suggestions and more.

This month’s articles included a feature on Boulder’s newest health food restaurant, Flower Child, opened at 2580 Arapahoe Ave. #110 and owned by Hannah Timm who describes the restaurant as “fast and casual” and hopes to bring together a group of “dynamic personalities willing to learn and grow with a great company.” The menu is fresh and flavorful, and the staff is happy to help you find exactly what you are looking for–even if that means making substitutions!

Other articles published recently feature a list of new businesses opening in the downtown Boulder area this year, those that are closing, the announcement of an “American Ninja Warrior” training gym opening in Lafayette and even an article on how to camp (without the tent!).

Though the magazine is still relatively new to the Boulder area it’s already garnering the public’s attention. Their social media pages have been gaining followers consistently and circulation has nearly doubled since January 2018.

Meghan Bach, a real estate agent with Colorado Landmark Realtors, and current advertiser with the magazine appreciates that the magazine features both a print and digital version. “Their site is a great resource, while their publication is already in so many hot spots for Boulder tourism and new buyers…  I’m thinking and hopeful this becomes the go-to publication and site for folks visiting and/or considering moving to Boulder.”

Not only is the magazine a great place to advertise, it’s also a great place to get involved and make connections within the Boulder community. Staff writers live in Boulder, are in tune with the pulse of the town and can offer fantastic recommendations, all of the advertisements are for great local businesses, so what are you waiting for?

Check out  Travel Boulder online or in print today!

There is a digital version of the magazine available online at www.travelboulder.com, and a print version of the magazine is available at the Boulder Visitor Center, the Boulder Chamber, Chautauqua Park, and numerous other locations around town.
