Located in South Boulder, the Table Mesa area skirts the foothills down to Broadway. Most of the homes were built in the sixties and given the close proximity to the university a lot of teachers and students lived there. Recently rejuvenated by the the success of the Table Mesa Plaza which has attracted new upscale shops, restaurants and even a microbrewery and is anchor by a major grocery store. The towering foothills afford some of the best views in town especially of the famous Flatirons rock outcroppings Boulder is famous for. Easy access to the freeways toward Denver and south toward I 70, the major route up to the mountains, are another draw to this area of town. The home prices have increased as new families and residents have moved in and remodeled and expanded the existing mostly ranch style homes. This area has great hiking trails and a bike trail system that can be easily taken for commuters to the university or downtown. The bus service is also excellent and very encompassing.
