"A relaxed atmosphere and quaint mountain town feel, just north of Boulder."

Niwot, Colorado has a rich history that dates back to the late 1800s when it was founded as a railroad depot, which residents are reminded of every time they see the Niwot Caboose parked in Whistle Stop Park, as it hosts a variety of community events as well as live music with the free Rock & Rails Summer Concert series. The town itself is named after Chief Niwot of the Southern Arapaho tribe, who was known for his advocacy of peace between the settlers and the Native American tribes. Today, Niwot preserves its historic roots through its beautiful architecture, including the iconic old train station, as well as various events and festivals held throughout the year that celebrate the town's heritage. Don't let the small town vibe fool you, though; Niwot also features many luxury neighborhoods and prestige properties that would compete with Denver's most affluent neighborhoods, for those with who enjoy the finer things in life, but don't necessarily enjoy the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Despite its small size, Niwot offers a variety of quality dining options. The 1914 House is a personal favorite, a converted two-story historic building serving a diverse and innovative menu focused on sustainably-grown, high quality ingredients (many of which patrons will see growing in the garden while dining on the patio). Treppeda's Italian Ristorante is a popular spot that serves up authentic Italian cuisine in a cozy and inviting atmosphere, while Colterra Food & Wine offers a farm-to-table dining experience with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. The Niwot Tavern, with its comfortable pub-style atmosphere, offers a range of American comfort food and drink options. In addition to its dining options, Niwot's quaint, comfortable downtown area also features a variety of locally-owned businesses, including antique stores, boutiques, and specialty shops, as well as a weekly farmers market during the summer season. It's a great place to spend an afternoon.

For residents, Niwot's charm lies in its small-town, rural community feel and its easy access to both the outdoors and the city. The town offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation, including hiking and biking on nearby trails, kayaking on nearby lakes and rivers, and skiing in the nearby mountains. At the same time, residents can enjoy the benefits of being close to Boulder, including its vibrant cultural scene and thriving job market. With its unique blend of history, dining, and natural beauty, Niwot is a wonderful place to call home.
