The Most Overrated City in Colorado Might Not Surprise You
Ever since the dawn of the Rocky Mountain Showdown, the people of Fort Collins have loved to poke fun at our neighbors in Boulder. Now, a new survey has just given them extra ammo.
According to an Instagram poll from @mattsurelee, the most overrated city in Colorado is indeed Boulder. The so-called "People's Republic" joined the ranks of cities like Jackson, Wyoming, St. George, Utah, and Sante Fe, New Mexico.
@mattsurelee based the results on the opinions of his followers, so the survey may not be entirely accurate. However, I must admit that I am a Colorado State University alum, so I'm happy to take this data in full stride.
Some commenters on the survey agreed with me.
I was really looking forward to [visiting] Boulder, and I was very disappointed. Usually college towns are super fun and hip, but Boulder wasn't.
The town is basically $400 a night Disney village next to the highway.
Others came to Boulder's defense.
Boulder? No way! Just hating on them [because] it's always ranked #1.
I'm a basic b*tch who loves Boulder.
Many shared what they think Colorado's most overrated city truly is. The other contenders? Denver, Vail, Breckenridge, and Crested Butte.
Regardless of the survey's accuracy, I say to my fellow Fort Collins friends: enjoy this victory. To our Boulder neighbors: don't worry, we're just joshin'.
