About

Boulder City is known as a clean, green oasis in the desert. Located approximately 20 miles from the glitter and excitement of Las Vegas and just a few miles from the grandeur of Hoover Dam, Boulder City offers a quiet, relaxed living environment. With a population of slightly more than 15,000 people, Boulder City residents enjoy a quaint, small town atmosphere, historic charm and an excellent quality of life with a low crime rate and high quality police and fire services.

Boulder City takes pride in its quality recreational facilities such as Bootleg Canyon, one of the world's Epic Trails, Boulder City Golf Course, Boulder Creek Golf Club, the year-round swimming pool and racquetball complex, tennis courts and hiking trails that provide residents and visitors a wide range of experiences.

Boulder City was initially created to house the workers who built Hoover Dam, and as such, was a significant and integral part of the successful completion of the Boulder Canyon Project. Constructed in 1931 in the midst of the Great Depression, Boulder City was conceived by the Federal Government as an ideal town, a "model" city to which the American people could look for hope of a better future.
