Summertime is a magical season. The kids are out of school, the sunshine seems never-ending and there’s no shortage of adventures that await. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood—sleepaway camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes. We also celebrate our nation’s independence, host parties for our friends and family and, if we’re lucky, take a scenic road trip! We planned the ideal summer getaway— on page XX in A Ranch Within Reach. In this issue of Boulder Lifestyle, we want to remind you why summer is a season of opportunity. When’s the last time you played tourist in your hometown? We invite you to use pages XX-XX as your guide to some spectacular sites right down the road in Worth the Drive. This month is also a great opportunity to discover the recently reopened Boulder trails on pages XX-XX in  And don’t miss the delectable Whirlaway cocktail recipe on page XX-XX in Horse Racing and Bourbon Drinking, What Else from Pinhook Bourbon. With so much to see and do this month, we only scratched the surface of what Boulder has to offer—but we hope this issue gets you off to a good start. Happy exploring, Boulder. We hope to see you around!
