Boulder County is also in Northern Colorado and includes the Colorado cities of Boulder, Erie, Lafayette, Longmont, Louisville, Lyons, Eldora, Nederland, Niwot and Superior. These Colorado cities are on the front range except Estes Park, which is about an hour west of Loveland at the base of Rocky Mountain National Park. Rocky Mountain National Park is the third most visited national park in the US.
Communities in Northern Colorado are connected by the major highways CO34, I-25, Co36. The communities in this area are within 30 to 90 minutes of each other and Denver as well. Each city is also anchored by classical downtown Main Streets where many community events, free concerts, farmers markets and art festivalS take place.
Northern Colorado events highlight a highly cultural region of Colorado. Several art galleries and festivals take place in just about every town. You can also expect to see top notch classical music at the Colorado Music Festival in Boulder every summer. The region is also saturated with musical venues featuring the best touring and Colorado bands.
