Yeah, Longmont’s not a neighborhood of Boulder, but it’s getting there. Around twenty minutes from Boulder, this formerly sleepy burgh is slowly becoming sought-after, with its classic bungalows and Victorians priced well below the going rate in, say, Mapleton.
It’s what everyone thinks about when they visit Longmont – historic, vibrant neighborhoods tucked away yet within an easy walk of downtown’s restaurants, cafes and facilities. We have a full section on Longmont here.
Old Town is home to more than 300 small businesses, charming boutiques, one-of-a-kind restaurants, coffee shops, music venues, art galleries, brew pubs, and much, much more. It’s the site of lively events like summertime festivals, concerts, and art walks. It’s dotted with artwork place by the city’s Art in Public Places initiative, and is home to many of Longmont’s parks.
Not far off of Main Street, you’ll find historic homes on tree-lined streets. Thompson Park anchors Old Town and makes for a great place for a picnic or family outing. Thompson Park hosts performances by the Longmont Symphony, and in the summertime becomes an outdoor movie theater. Check out our blog post about Fall in Longmont.
