Inventions: The Mother of Vacation-- Part 4: Boulder and Detroit

BOULDER, COLORADO: Home to the TechStars business incubator, this pretty Rocky Mountain university town is a center for high-tech, start-ups. You can catch a glimpse of local innovators at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, both of which have public tours. (I'd think the last place, NOAA, would be closer to the ocean considering their name.) //// DETROIT, MICHIGAN: For more than a century, Motown (not to mention music) was a town of thinkers. It is the home of the now-rebounding U.S. auto industry and still serves as a crucial manufacturing hub. You can see automaking history at the Ford Rouge Factory Tour. //// And the Car Went Beep, beep. --RoadDog
