Boulder City is a very small community compared to where I used to live. I was raised my entire life in Las Vegas until we moved up here a few years ago. I enjoy how quiet it is and how for the most part everyone seems to know each other and treats each other well. My only complaint is the lack of variety when it comes to stores and shops. For example, there is only one market here and it is always jam packed, and the prices are ridiculously high.
Review Boulder City
The K-12 schools are close together. Good for family. Lots of parks and sports for the kids. Boulder City has numerous festivals year round. Home of the Famous Christmas house on 5th street, Fourth of July parade, and Christmas parade.
Boulder City is a small town with a lot of travelers who wonder in on their trip to the Hoover dam. It's a very close knit community. If I go to the one of three stores in the area, it's extremely likely that I will run into someone I know. The community is definitely supportive but there also is a general feel of conservativeness that isn't really my cup of tea. I'm planning on leaving as soon as possible, but it was a great place to live for a while.
