A while back, I wrote about how Boulder fared in a variety of national rankings.  Here are a couple more interesting tidbits:

America's Most High-Tech Cities - Number 3 [Tech America Foundation]
America's Safest Cities - Top 20  [#17] - Mid-Sized Cities [Farmers Insurance Group]

San Jose/Silicon Valley has 33 percent of the workforce in high tech; Huntsville, Alabama has 23 percent and Boulder has 22 percent.  Durham, NC and Palm Bay/Melbourne, Florida round out the top five.

I could not find any rankings for mid-sized cities for craft breweries, but Boulder has to be right up there.  There are some great local craft brewers, but we are quite partial to Upslope and Avery .  Both have tap rooms [we just visited Upslope this afternoon], and if you get to Boulder and you enjoy fine beer, hit both of these places!!!  We have also visited the Twisted Pine tap room, but alas, the beer was nearly room temperature. 

Another ranking recently came out - Boulder was Number 2 for Best College Towns by Parents and Colleges, second to Austin.
