Boulder City

Last week I had a day with no plans so I decided to go to Boulder City with camera in hand for some shopping, pictures, and lunch. I ended up finding some very cool things that have been unnoticed in previous trips.

Driving into town I pulled over several times to take pictures of the many signs that make this place a special lost in time kind of town.I parked by the old Ace Hardware and walked around town and visited many interesting shops. One of my favorites (and new to me) was Hottest Dam Boutique, they had a great variety for all sizes 0-6xl and everything was pretty. Not only were the clothes cute so was the shop that had rose petals on the dressing room floor and a sign that said "You are beautiful" who hasn't needed this reminder when trying on clothes. I was fairly good and left with a beautiful bracelet made by a local artist and a gorgeous Maxi dress.

I also visited an adorable quilt shop with many yummy fabrics man I wish I had time to quilt. I also visited many antique shops which make for not only fun shopping but great pictures. Lunch was of course at Milo's which is a bistro and wine bar, I had the most awesome spinach salad!

My best find though was while taking pictures of the sign for the Boulder City hotel I noticed it had a museum and shops inside. I found a great museum about the building of the Hoover/Boulder Dam and the creation of boulder city. The museum was from the builders and residents perspective not just the basic facts. A must see when your in town and hey it was $2.

Along the way of my adventures I found a beautiful cactus in bloom and had fun capturing it's many flowers.
Finally on the was I stopped at the metal art place and took many more pictures but I will spare you and just share my favorite pieces I think I may end up with this, since I have killed a living cactus LOL!

I know a ton of pictures but I did just share my favorite from the 150+ really good ones.
