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 more than 22,000 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 popular historic downtown, home to a variety of events, delicious foods and 18-hole championship golf 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.
The 41-acre Erie Community Park further improves the quality of life with ballfields, concession stand, playgrounds, soccer fields, tennis courts, walking trails and picnic tables. Erie also boasts premier educational and research facilities including a public library and St. Vrain and Boulder Valley School District schools.
