I loved growing up in Boulder City. It's a small community with lots to do and Las Vegas is only 30 minutes away. Since it is a small community, but growing rapidly, everybody knows everybody! The schools are all near each other along with the city pool and recreational center. All of the kids grow up from preschool to high school and graduate together 12 years later. It is a very safe town to live in and was once referred to as the safest town in the United States! Because of this, many families wanted to move here which made real estate prices increase but not completely unaffordable.

When I first moved to Boulder City, I did not know anyone. I had moved from a big city, so the atmosphere of the small town was quite different. However, it was easy to make connections, and the fact that everyone knows each other can be really helpful. There's even a Facebook group for the residents! My neighbors are kind and my brother has friends to play with. The school is small but the teachers are nice. All in all, it has been a great experience living here, and I hope to return some time after graduating college.
Boulder City is a small, yet thriving, town. There’s a good wholesome family vibe everywhere you go throughout Boulder City; however, that also means everyone’s always up in your business. There’s also very little to do in Boulder City, and most the time you have to travel to its neighboring towns to get out and do something.
