So, they tax themselves a lot and have a low BMI.....and that makes them healthy (according to the AARP)? Then there's the median housing price of over $600K. Think that's out of my league, Ma'am. Been in Boulder twice, and I will admit that pretty much everything I saw fits the article description. Never saw so many entitled Caucasians in one place in my life.....

Easy with the sterotypes. Boulder IS one of the fittest cities in the nation because most everyone there exercises. If that makes someone uncomfortable, then don't visit. If it doesn't make you uncomfortable, it's a great place to visit. Good food, beer, and company.

I think the stereotype is fairly accurate, but not always in a bad way. Wealthy people tend to have more time and resources to stay fit.

Living in Boulder is a love-it or hate-it thing, more than other places in my experience. For me, the moment I stepped out of the car on my first visit, I was home.

Never a big fan of Boulder. The city itself is amazing, but a lot of the people rub me the wrong way...
