Colorado is known for ski resorts. If you want to spend time on the slopes, you need to know where to go for your next trip through the snow. Here are the best choices throughout Boulder for your next ski vacation.

Just chair lifts, a day lodge and a parking lot. However, if you want to enjoy a mealy, the cafeteria has decent food for an affordable price.

Now that Thanksgiving is officially behind us, it is time to fully embrace the most wonderful holiday of all, Christmas! In fact, this weekend was the most popular time for Santa’s elves to be busy at work decorating the houses in their neighborhoods and city buildings. Thus creating the wonderful visual spectacular we all love and have learned to expect during this time of year. Whether you are into simple white lights and red ribbons, inflatable Mickey Mouse Christmas characters, or extravagant light shows with music and animatronics, one thing you can be sure of is an inflated energy bill. So this December instead of increasing your carbon footprint even further, adorn your home with more eco-friendly holiday decoration options.…

People in Colorado are known for being fit and healthy, even during the holidays if you can believe it! In fact, one of the most popular ways for Coloradans to celebrate the season of giving is typically whatever charity race, marathon, or fun run is going on, and this Thanksgiving is no different!

I took a drive today into Boulder and got some really cool shots of the Flatirons peeking out from behind some clouds. Every time I drive down South Boulder Road, I remember the first time I saw that view of the Rockies and how amazed I was by its beauty. After nearly 12 years, I still think the views I captured in the pictures below are some of the most gorgeous Colorado has to offer.

Are you looking for something really cool to do with the kids? I recently visited the WOW! Children's Museum in Lafayette with my 3 yr old son and it was blast! Located right near downtown Lafayette, this interactive museum has tons of activities that are educational and fun.
WOW! takes kids on a fun, hands-on journey that highlights things like reading, math, science and the arts. This place has everything from a pirate ship, a toddler beach complete with slide and sandbox, a pretend grocery store and bank, plus an outside play area. A couple of our favorites were the music room, the pulley chairs, the grocery store scanner and the huge bubble maker you can stand inside. You will also find a great sitting area to have a bite to eat, party rooms for
