Be a part of Being Boulder

One of the great things about living in Boulder City is the sense of community and camaraderie shared by its residents. We know that there are special moments in everyone’s lives and now we want to help bring those moments to light. That is what Being Boulder is all about. It’s a place where residents can share photos and stories about what it’s like to live in Boulder City.

Appearing regularly on one of our Community pages you will find photos and/or stories submitted by local residents. You’ll also find what’s coming next so you can start planning.

With summer well underway, we’re asking to share with us ways you stay cool. Do you spend time in the pool? Relax inside in the air conditioning? Enjoy an ice cream outing with the family? Send your photos to us at news@bouldercityreview.com by Monday for publication in the July 23 issue.

Please be sure to identify everyone in the picture, and include your name and a way to contact you (phone or email) in case we have questions.

Up next: Pets.

As always, if you have suggestions about what you’d like to see featured as part of Being Boulder, just let us know.

Send your ideas to editor Hali Bernstein Saylor at hsaylor@bouldercityreview.com.

Ask questions before hiring contractor

Finding a good contractor can be daunting, especially when home improvement demands are still surging since lockdowns.
