Do any exist or any other great cities that aren't small and rednecky?

There is nothing else like Boulder in the whole state, never mind one that is undiscovered.

What do you consider small? Boulder is almost 100k. There are only ten other places in Colorado as large and none of them are like Boulder. Everything else is smaller.

Small, yet funky and eclectic, with summer and winter activities, try Salida. 5k population, galleries, brew pubs, and coffee shops. Unfortunately for you, it is still a mountain town that has a high percentage of rednecky with trucks, gun racks, wildlife, and a lot of Texan residents in the summer.

What does "affordable" mean to you?

Are you looking strictly in Colorado? Because you won't find it.

Without more information about city size range, what is affordable to you and what qualities of Boulder you most value, I see no way to respond productively.

I think Colorado Springs is a hidden gem.

So weird, because it's so huge.

Manitou Springs to the south or Broomfield which is only 15-20 min. from Boulder.

Obviously, but at least it's close to Boulder.

Well, perhaps we need the OP to define what they perceive the greatness of Boulder to be that they are looking for and also clue us in to what too rednecky might be so we can avoid that.
