Just over the hill from Boulder, Superior lives up to its name in views, trails and convenient amenities.

Discovering Superior, Colorado

Superior’s striking transformation from a coal-mining town to a modern suburb with almost 600 acres of open space and 29 miles of trails is one to admire. This small town with big-city amenities is conveniently located just minutes from Boulder. A central bus station and proximity to Highway 36 also means easy access to Denver. Superior grabbed the attention of athletes and recreation-lovers alike with the opening of the Sports Stable, bringing to the city 180,000 square feet of ice rinks, fields, basketball courts, golfing, gyms, and more. It’s a key part of the town’s master-planned, 156-acre Downtown Superior development that includes retail, housing, dining, and recreation. With great schools, pools, abundant outdoor recreation, and a new community center, Superior is a hot spot for families looking to embrace the Colorado lifestyle and make the most of the Boulder area’s natural beauty. The portions of Superior affected by the 2021 Marshall Fire are seeing significant progress with rebuilding efforts.
