As recently as April 2014, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index indicated Boulder, Colorado as the skinniest city in the United States. Since the pedestrian-friendly city rests in the cradle of the Rocky Mountain foothills, with plenty of nearby opportunities to hike, the ranking is perhaps no surprise to Boulder's 100,000 residents. It certainly comes as no surprise to guides at Boulder Walking Tours, who make their living showing off the city's footpaths through its downtown historic districts.
On one of their signature tours, guides take up to eight guests to explore Boulder's still-operational Chautauqua campus, where an adult-educational movement has thrived since the late 19th century. The morning-long tour benefits from stunning views of the Flatirons, deftly told anecdotes of local Chautauquans, and historical photographs that show off how far picture-taking technology has come.
For more than 35 years, Boulder Army Store has sold its customers one thing: adventure. Behind its 19th-century brick storefront, the store stocks all the requisite apparel and gear needed for outdoor exploration. Its knowledgeable staff outfits customers for year-round thrills with outdoor gear, clothing, and footwear for all seasons from brands such as Merrell and Columbia Sportswear. In fact, some of the store's items almost seem to have minds of their own, since they can adjust for different temperatures or even generate electricity.
The shelves and walls also brim with camping equipment and gear designed for specific activities, including backpacking, kayaking, and rock climbing. For summer months, more than 200 styles of footwear keep outdoorsy types protected as they scale hiking trails or levitate just a few inches above rough terrain.
Named one of Parents magazine's Top 10 Birthday Chains in 2010, Color Me Mine's international franchise of DIY ceramics studios cater to an older crowd as well. Hundreds of unadorned ceramic pieces?including vases, flatware, and busts of Elvis?await the attentions of muses of kids and their keepers alike, as do glazes in earthy tones and bright crimsons to frighten bulls away from china cabinets. Guests follow simple step-by-step instructions that leave plenty of room for creative expression. When painters are satisfied with their work, the professional kiln-workers help glaze and fire it for them before customers retrieve the finished piece a few days later.
When brothers Joseph and Herb Guiry founded the paint store that bears their name, Denver was still an untamed frontier town, William McKinley was President, and the flag still had 45 stars and not a single cartoon dog. The year was 1899, and, in the hundred-plus years since, the store has remained a family tradition across four generations of shopkeepers. Today, the store’s seven locations carry paints for everything from houses to school projects, and supplement their stock with home decorations including lighting, wallpaper, and furniture.
Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution?an organic plant- and mineral-based gel?to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the tonal transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from their smiles. To continue the process, Davinci also produces a take-home personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, an LED accelerator light, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel.
