Mountain View Niwot ColoradoNiwot, Colorado is a small community, not quite a town or a borough, but a census-designated place or locality of Boulder County. Located just 10 minutes from Downtown Boulder and 5 minutes from the City of Longmont, Niwot spreads out over 4.1 square miles of old farm land.  The area is absolutely beautiful and features pockets mature cottonwood trees, majestic views of the Rockies, and of course the great open plains.   This cute and cultural community with a population of about 4,160 people, was named for the Arapaho Chief Niwot, who was a tribal leader during the 19th century in the Boulder area. Chief Niwot’s name means “left-handed” which is familiar to locals because of Boulder’s popular Left Hand Canyon and Longmont’s Left Hand Brewing Company.
