Boulder Realtor Shares Info On Erie, CO
As a Boulder Realtor, I find myself all over Boulder County and the surrounding area. One of our towns is actually in both Boulder County and Weld County. Many people moving in and around the Boulder Metro Area have found great values buying homes in Erie.
I think that we’ll see Erie continue to be a great market for home buyers looking for an excellent suburban community. It should be a strong resource through 2008 for buyers who want more square footage for their dollar as compared to some of the more western counterpart cities like Louisville, Superior and Lafayette.
Erie, like many other communities east of Boulder, was once home to coal mines, railroads and agriculture, today it is a typical suburban community. An area that Erie town officials like to highlight is the Historic Downtown Business District. Downtown is the home of eclectic businesses and eateries according to Erie officials.
A walk down Briggs Street will perhaps allow you to discover for yourself why Downtown Erie is in some people’s eyes becoming a restaurant destination for folks that live in the Erie area. Downtown also hosts some annual events such as the Erie Town Fair, the High School Homecoming Parade, the Eerie Erie 10k Halloween race, Biscuit Day and Oktoberfest. Downtown, like much of Erie, retains a comfortable small-town atmosphere. I’m thinking about checking out the Eerie Erie… I ran in the Colder Boulder this year and it was fun so a run in October might be just the ticket for a new endeavor.
Erie’s quality of life is exceptional if you’re interested in sunny weather. With typically over 300 days of sunshine per year (like much of Colorado). You may take advantage of the wonderful weather by playing a round at Erie’s new 18-hole championship golf course. Erie also has the Town’s Skate Park and other outdoor entertainment is apparent and the town is in close proximity to many other target destinations.
