Absurdly Rural?!

Our little town of Boulder Creek was mentioned in Sunset Magazine recently. The Press Banner, our local paper, ran a story about it. Here it is:

Boulder Creek was recently featured in Sunset Magazine’s February issue as one of 20 “ultimate fantasy towns” across the world that would be ideal for city-dwellers looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a “slower-paced, stress-free” lifestyle.

Sunset describes the town thus: “Just over the hill from shmancy Woodside, absurdly rural Boulder Creek (and neighbor La Honda) has the open space to keep cyclists, hikers, and horses happy.”

Oh, dear, they forgot to mention happy dogs! Boulder Creek is great fur dogs, too!

We think it's rather funny!

Would rather be 'absurdly rural' than 'absurdly urban'! There is enough urban jungle out there. Glad to be away from it!

You aren't kidding...we live 8 miles outside of our town, and while not isolated, at least we are 'away' from it...

We are 11 miles from anything.. and moved here purposely ! I dont drive..... may have to.

I last place I want to be is "town". Been there .. done it... in various cities in the world.... do NOT want it ... and never really did..... being a country lass !

I just hated the arrogance of that "journalist".

I`ll echo Flicka`s sentiments! Philadelphia is much too urban,the only saving graces are nearby Pennypack Park with 12 miles of bike trails and we are close to Bucks county and the Delaware Canal.
