Americans are making moves. Despite economic uncertainty, home sales rose to a 14-year high in 2020, and the trend looks set to continue into the new year. According to Pew Research, one in five Americans have moved or know somebody who has due to the pandemic.
Key factors like livability, growth, job opportunities and most importantly, pet-friendliness are top considerations for those considering a relocation this year. For those local to Boulder, it will come as no surprise that we have been ranked as the #1 most pet-friendly city to move to in 2021 by bringfido.com.
“The People’s Republic of Boulder is the place to be in 2021. First, you can check excellent public schools and ample job opportunities in a variety of sectors off Fido’s moving list. Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, this small city within a park is also a gateway to the “grrreat” outdoors. Bring Fido for a dip at Boulder Reservoir, hike the beautiful Flatirons Vista and Doudy Draw Trail, or meet the local canine community at Foothills Community Dog Park. You can even sign your pup up for a Boulder Voice and Sight Tag for off-leash access to designated trails. With 300 days of sunshine a year, there’s plenty of time for outbound hounds to experience all that Boulder has to offer. In the summer, the free Park-to-Park shuttle welcomes dogs on board. And the city boasts a thriving food and arts scene. Check out SmithKlein Gallery with your pooch before visiting Avery Brewing Company to hang in the spacious fenced-in area.”
