Looking for Peace? Try Colorado
It's tough out there in America right now, and with each passing day, it frequently seems as though things are only going to get tougher. With the news constantly seeming bad at all times, there's usually very little in the paper to give you a moment to chill out and appreciate when anything actually good happens.
That's why it's especially important to savor the good news when we can, which is something that I say so often now, that I'm starting to get tired of it. Nevertheless, that's exactly what we're doing today; savoring good news, not getting tired of looking for it, to be clear.
If you've been looking for a place that would allow you a moment's respite, it turns out that you might already be living there. According to a new study from Money Inc. (again, NOT the former champions of the world), Boulder is one of the most peaceful towns in the entirety of the United States. Guess I know where I'm planning my next vacation.
Boulder landed at number 16 on a list that was ultimately topped by Green Banks, West Virginia, of all places. Nothing against the folks in Green Banks, I've just literally never heard of the place. Perhaps that's part of the reason things are so peaceful there.
Unfortunately, Boulder's presence is Colorado's only representation in the list's top twenty. You may recall that our friends at Money Inc. were also able to put together a list of some of the worst places to live in Colorado, including Grand Junction and Delta. Perhaps the fact that they were able to make that list in the first place informs why Boulder is the only Colorado town to get the nod. Food for thought, I guess.
