One of the oldest neighborhoods in Boulder, Chautauqua surrounds the historic Chautauqua Park in southwest Boulder near University Hill. It’s a beautiful location that provides endless views of the Flatirons and is within walking distance of the famed Chautauqua Park, the University of Colorado, as well as shops and services in the area.
Homes in Chautauqua vary from charming cottages to spacious Victorians, and many are located on large lots with plenty of mature trees. Given the proximity to the University of Colorado, it is not uncommon to also see some condos and townhouses, mainly used for student housing and rental properties. Many neighborhood homes offer spectacular views of Flagstaff Mountain and the Flatirons, as well as quick access to hiking trails.
Living in the Chautauqua neighborhood offers endless activities. The Chautauqua Dining Hall, run by the Chautauqua Colorado Association, is a great place to eat brunch before or after your weekend hike, and the proximity to downtown Boulder and South Boulder makes it an easy bike ride or walk to all the dining and shopping in the area. In addition, there are great family-oriented outdoor activities. The Ranger’s Center provides special children’s programs in the park, including nature hikes and campfire storytelling sessions.
