In an economy that’s certainly seen better days, many people are packing up and moving to new cities, in search of new opportunities. To assist in that search, CNN has come up with a list of the top counties in the U.S. with the lowest unemployment rates. We perused the list thinking a ski town might make it…and we were right! Boulder County, Colorado comes in at number 7. Here’s their description:

“Unemployment rate: 5.3%

At the heels of the Rocky Mountains is the beautiful county of Boulder. While many people come for the University of Colorado, graduates stay because of the plentiful job opportunities. Tech firms including IBM, Sun Microsystems and Ball Aerospace are some of Boulder’s top employers. IBM recently announced that it’s adding another 500 jobs, mostly at the call center at its Boulder facility.

Outside of the city, the area’s rich agricultural history remains largely unchanged with active farms and mining towns that date back to the 1800s.”

Yea Boulder! Rock it!
