If you visit Boulder, hiking is a central part of the experience. There are many trails that criss-cross Chautauqua Park, but if you hike the ones under NIST you will find them to be much less crowded. Take the Table Mesa exit off the 36 Highway...

Boulder was my home for 17 years, and so it's tough for me to think of it as a tourist attraction. There are of course many wonderful things to see: the Flatirons, Chautauqua, and the Pearl Street Mall, which was just a run-down street when I was...

Modmarket: Walking distance from the Millennium Harvest House Boulder, it’s a great spot for breakfast and coffee. I had whole grain Belgian waffles topped with a delicious apple pear compote. The compote was not too sweet, which paired perfectly...

You've got two options: a drink at Wynkoop Brewing Company, or a wander through the Denver Modern Art Museum. I chose wrong. It took half a dozen pints of Cowtown Milk Stout to wash away the memory of that museum's dreadful third floor exhibition....

Sometimes I love to have long lunches “for one.” Either in the company of my laptop, a good book, or simply my thoughts. I pick a place with good food, uncrowded seating, and I plop myself down for an hour or two. Le Grand Bistro is one of my...
