The Most Beautiful Beach of Lake Tahoe-Sand Harbor

May 27th, 2022

If there’s a place on earth that most resembles what heaven looks like, it is without a doubt, Lake Tahoe.

However, never should this place be taken for granted, or looked past for a second. Lake Tahoe is simply breathtaking. The lake is 13 miles long and 6 miles wide, totaling 72 miles of coastline all the way around. The water can be mistaken for resembling waters like those in the Caribbean or even Fiji, however,... Read More

Add that to the daily stresses of family, career, and household. What’s a 21st century person to do? One thing we all are undereducated about... Read More

Looking Back: Boulder Duck Race

May 26th, 2022

Conditioning, in the Ivan Pavlov sense, is a strange thing. As people we’re able to think our way in or out of most anything, yet we’re no less subject to the process. This was on display last weekend at the annual Boulder Creek Festival, which saw the return of the Rubber Duck Race. If unfamiliar, here’s the score: literally thousands of caution-yellow rubber ducks are released into Boulder Creek en masse; the first to cross the finish line is the champ, and the “sponsor” of that duck wins a grand prize. It’s a quirky but fun tradition, and all proceeds go to the EXPAND program. Win-win. Due... Read More

Should You Consider Intermittent Fasting?

May 26th, 2022

Humans have been fasting throughout our existence, sometimes because food was not available, or as a part of major religions, including Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism. As hunter-gatherers humans went for stretches when food was not available, our bodies evolved to be able to function without food for extended periods of time. Intermittent fasting is a term for an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It is not a “diet” in the conventional sense. It is more accurately described as an “eating pattern.” Intermittent fasting methods may involve... Read More

Boulder named Colorado’s Best Hippie Town

May 26th, 2022

Boulder, Colorado was named the most Hippie Town in Colorado by Thrillist. What they had to say was as follows: Given that Colorado was the first state in the nation to legalize weed, you might assume that there are plenty—plenty—of cities that could qualify as “hippie cities.” And you would be absolutely correct. That being said, Boulder certainly takes the cake. Just a quick ride from the Mile High City, this free-spirited Rocky Mountain college town—easily one of the best places for weed tourism in the entire US—has long roots as a hippie capital, and today, it boasts a vibrant... Read More

A Side of History With Your Sink Burger

May 25th, 2022

If there is one restaurant that should be written about in AboutBoulder.com, it should be The Sink, and mainly because of its sheer celebrity in the Boulder community. Located on The Hill, it’s been a Boulder staple for over 90 years. It’s changed names a and owners a handful of times but in 1989 returned (permanently) to it’s roots. Known for its beatnik murals and colorful decor, The Sink was home to Buffs like Robert Redford (legend has it he slept in one of the booths after working his janitor shifts), and being the hub for the hippie culture in the 70s.  You probably already know that... Read More

Looking Back: Surviving the Bolder Boulder

May 25th, 2022

The stories are usually written about Olympian athletes and their ability to overcome obstacles. Well,... Read More

Do Happy People Live Longer?

May 25th, 2022

There have been studies conducted to determine if happy people live longer.  In a study from the UK, one of the longest-running studies on aging,  older people who said they were happy, were less likely to die over a five-year period. And the happier they were, the longer they lived. The study results showed that older people who reported feeling happiest were 35% less likely of dying during the study than those who were least happy. Earlier studies have looked at happiness and longevity by asking people to recall their emotional state, for example, happiness and anxiety, throughout the day.... Read More
