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.
Review Boulder City
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.
Boulder City is a great little town. It's very clean and friendly, and there are a lot of cool things to do. The community is very tight-knit and I love it.
