Flagstaff Mountain Boulder ColoradoFlagstaff Mountain is a Boulder tradition, and for me it was one of the first places I visited upon landing in Colorado back in 2002. In fact, one of the big boulders on your way up Flagstaff Rd became my favorite study spot and where I did the majority of my homework for my first year of college here. Even in the fall and into early winter, I would go up there, pick a spot to camp out on, and just feel at peace. 

From taking in the stunning views of downtown Boulder, to enjoying the windy drive up to the nature center and amphitheater, Flagstaff Mountain offers tons of amazing sights, all of which are picture perfect! Not to mention it is one of the most popular places to take a date, host a wedding or event, and to experience high-class dining in

When thinking of "getting high" in Boulder, Colorado", Paragliding may not be the first thing to come to mind, but it should be. Boulder is very fortunate to have one of the top Paragliding instructors in the country, Granger Banks. You can visit Granger’s website at http://parasoftparagliding.com/. If you are interested in giving this exhilarating sport a try, there are several options for giving it a go.

The quickest way to introduce yourself to paragliding is to take a tandem flight where you are attached to the instructor and you fly together. Another option is to get your P1, a student pilot certification. When you get your P1 you spend a few days (20 hours+) learning and practicing ground handling, some classroom work, and finally you make

NCAR Boulder ColoradoI recently took an awesome hike around the NCAR Building, one that I have never done before in Boulder despite my 10 year residential status on the Front Range. I mean, I have of course heard about NCAR and had driven up there, but I never explored the grounds beyond the parking lot views that overlook South Boulder, and boy was I missing out! I was so impressed by everything I saw and enjoyed being out there with my dog so much, I just had to write about it!

I found it refreshing to be out there in the solitude, while not being more than about 8 minutes away from our RE/MAX Alliance of Boulder’s Baseline office. Talk about convenience! I supposes this why the NCAR trailheads, Table Mesa Drive and NCAR Rd are so popular among Boulder cyclists and

The Med Boulder ColoradoRecently my family went to lunch at the Mediterranean Restaurant in Boulder, or just “The Med” as locals call it, and had an outstanding time! Of course that was to be expected, because I always have a good time whenever I dine here! In fact, I would have to say The Med is my all time favorite restaurant in Boulder and the surrounding area. 

Although it had been a while since I was there last, everything was just as delicious as I remembered it being. What was once my hotspot for cocktails and tapas, was enjoyed this time around from a family friendly perspective that was affordable and quick! (My kid loved their made-to-order shrimp poppers and the play "pizza dough" they gave out!)

Even though I don't dine out as much as I used to, whenever I have

Chautauqua BoulderOne of Boulder's special cultural gems is the Colorado Music Festival held every summer at the historic Chautauqua Auditorium. Currently under the direction of maestro Michael Christie, the festival is a vibrant and joyful way to experience classic, and occasionally modern, orchestra concerts in Boulder. The Colorado Music Festival (CMF) states that their mission is "To inspire and connect community members of all ages by providing access to the best of the world's music through education and performance." After attending a recent concert, we feel they have met and exceeded their mission!

ChautauquaThis summer talented artists including Lara St. John, Olga Kern, and Johannes Moser join the CMF to help create magic and delight on stage. "Together we will celebrate

Boulder is a place where art and the love of art flourishes!  From street performers, musicians, literary artists, sculptors, photographers, painters, and theatrical performers, Boulder is the perfect place for the average person to fall in love with modern art.  One Boulder artist in particular has made quite a name for himself in our community, as well as across the nation for his bold and modern paintings.  


Will Day is primarily a self taught painter from New York, who was inspired by his love of travel to venture out of the world of finance, and into an artistic career where he has developed his own unique style.  In fact, several of Will Day’s paintings were just recently featured in Colorado Homes and Lifestyles Magazine, where his art played a
