"Not many neighborhoods right on Arapahoe Avenue but it gets you into the countryside"

Arapahoe is a major road starting at the base of the Flatirons at Settler's Park near downtown and running west as HW 7 all the way out towards Kansas (I affectionately joke that Kansas is anywhere west of Boulder or Denver).

Arapahoe Avenue out east of Foothills Parkway out in the rural section of northeast is flat and has some scattered really nice neighborhoods, the Flatirons Gold Course and lots of businesses and some restaurants. If you keep following Arapahoe it goes up on the Piedmont, up up and to the lookout area over the city. The views are amazing. If you keep going you hit far land and 75th then 95th--there are some really nice properties out there and would be a great place to start a small organic farm or greenhouse or have some horses.

"Delicious Dining"

Arapahoe Avenue contains some of the best ethnic restaurants I have encountered in this mountain city. A walk down the street treats the pedestrian to a symphony of smells, each more tantalizing than the next. Open-air seating is great for the warm summer nights, but I can't imagine it would be as pleasant in the bitter cold of Boulder winters. I settled on the Royal Peacock, and was delighted by the delicious Indian cuisine at a relatively low price.
