Erie is an emerging destination spot for food and events, convenient to Boulder, Denver, and surrounding communities. Located less than 25 minutes from downtown Denver and a few miles east of Boulder, the community of Erie is home to approximately 20,000 residents who help to conserve and enhance its small town character. In its early days, Erie thrived due to coal mining, railroads and agriculture. Today you can enjoy the historic downtown district that's becoming a destination for food, events such as the Eerie Erie 5k and 10k Halloween race, Oktoberfest, and Biscuit Day, and golf at the 18-hole championship course at the Colorado National Golf Course. Erie is full of outdoorsy people from young professionals, to growing families, to active seniors who enjoy the close proximity to the mountains and the scenic trail system. The Vista Ridge community offers five-star resort amenities, including homes for every budget and lifestyle. Vista Ridge offers custom, single-family, condominium and low-maintenance homes ranging from the $160s to more than $1 million.
Under construction now is the new 41-acre Erie Community Park that helps to further improve the quality of life. Erie also boasts premier educational and research facilities including a new public library and St. Vrain and Boulder Valley School Districts schools.
