Niwot is a beautiful small town just outside of Boulder. It is a quiet, family oriented sanctuary where you can rejuvenate and relax just minutes away from the gorgeous flatirons. The town has everything you need without the hustle and bustle of larger cities. I absolutely love living in Niwot.

Niwot is a wonderful family town with an incredible community, local shop support, festivals, summer concerts, and grade school play and productions . It is well-kept, environmentally friendly, and has a 'small-town feel'.
I love the small town feel, everyone knows everyone. I do wish though that they had a few places for teenagers to "hang" out at.
