The city of Superior isn't named that because they think they're better than everyone else. The name comes from the late 1800's when Superior was known for its coal mining and I'm guessing for its views. Superior is just up the hill off of Highway 36 to the south of Boulder. In 2013 Superior had less than 13,000 residents. Most of the community is close to the 36 corridor that takes you to Denver and Boulder making it a smart choice for people working in Denver and the surrounding communities. Right across the 36 is Louisville which offers diverse shopping and dining opportunities. Buying a home in Superior makes for an easy life with access to open space as well as to shopping and employment opportunities at nationally known businesses.

Rock Creek Ranch makes up the majority of homes in Superior. Choices include town homes as well as single family homes. If you're looking for a newer home and turn key options Superior may be a great place for you to lay down roots. Large yards and roomy porches to host Friday happy hours, Rock Creek Ranch is a HOA community so you can rest assured that someone else will get to that snow shoveling. Superior also has two community pools and 27 miles of trails. With 594 acres of green space and open space you'll be able to enjoy Colorado's 300 plus days of sunshine.

For such a small town Superior goes above and beyond in hosting and supporting community events. Along with other events there is a chili fest, bike to work day, as well as a community garage sale. Superior seems to be dedicated to its home owners. There are two neighborhood schools; an elementary and a K-8. Older students can attend Monarch High School in nearby Louisville. The largest shopping mall is just minutes away in Broomfield. A park-n-ride is available for those who want to leave the car at home when they go to work or to the airport. Living in Superior means that you're that much closer to Denver where you can enjoy the theater, museums and urban comforts.

Superior makes me think of home. Homes that resemble a movie set with neighborhood parks and swim parties. With commanding views of both the foothills and Boulder it's a nice place to call home. Close enough to Boulder for commuting to work or for classes at the University of Colorado it's a lovely blend for home-buyers who want to have one foot in a close knit community and one foot ready to hit the road to the big city of Denver. It has grocery stores, cafes and more shopping than you'll ever need but perhaps what it really offers is a way to have a nice home with a nice yard and place for the bar-b-q.
