Small Town Feel!

Boulder City, Nevada is a city with a small-town feel. Living in Boulder City for 2 years, after living in a large city, this city was refreshing with friendly people and a low crime rate. Often known as the gateway to the Hoover Dam, I enjoyed visiting the dam while living in the city. The best places in Boulder City include the Historic Railroad Hiking Trail and Lake Mead. There are many opportunities for adventure here, including kayaking and mine tours. Looking for antiques in the small stores that line the streets is another wonderful pastime.
Boulder City is a close nit community. Although sometimes the city felt too small, I was only about a 25-mile drive to Las Vegas, increasing the nightlife exponentially! There are many small restaurants in Boulder City. The weather can get hot, especially in the middle of summer. During this season, it is best to try to stay indoors, where the air conditioning systems work hard to keep us cool, or at least stay by the water!
