While there are certainly reasons to celebrate the famed Pearl Street Mall and the glories of downtown Boulder, there are a number of gems to be discovered just a bit further out as well. At only fifteen minutes away, Gunbarrel is one of these gems.
The name of Gunbarrel derives from the most heavily trafficked stagecoach road between Longmont and Boulder in the 1800’s, and was made famous by a group of 40 men who biked the route in less than three hours in 1891.
Situated just northeast of Boulder proper, Gunbarrel has plenty of worthy features. Being the home of big-name companies like Celestial Seasonings, GE, IBM, and Crispin Porter + Bogusky, the area teems with success stories and eco-conscious business practices. The classic tale of Celestial Seasonings’ beginnings, just your “average Mo” making a big change in the tea industry, is simply one of the many things that give Gunbarrel its unique edge. In addition, Gunbarrel boasts the home of the prestigious Boulder Country Club, one of the most comprehensive full-service country clubs in Colorado.
Aside from its shorter-than-national-average commuter time and a higher-than-national-average employment rate, the area also has a big heart for nature lovers. Not only is Gunbarrel surrounded by open spaces, but they have also managed to make room for a number of parks within Gunbarrel for locals to stretch their legs and enjoy the outdoors. These include, but are not limited to, the Twin Lakes Open Space and Eaton Park.
