Turns out you don't have to move to Bedrock to live in the Flintstones' house.
A famously bizarre looking house in the Bay Area -- lovingly referred to as the "Flintstone House" for its outlandish Stone-Age appearance -- is now on the market for a rumored $4.2 million, according to a report by Curbed. Too bad it's probably not something you can afford as Bronto Crane Operator. And, no, they won't accept payment in Clams.

The sprawling, bright orange house has been a popular sight along a stretch of I-280 between Hillsborough and San Francisco since it was built as an "experiment in innovative building materials" in 1976 by architect William Nicholson, according to the report. The inside of the house, however, is a far cry from Wilma's rock-solid decorating.

11 Cold-Weather Activities That Will Remind You Why Winter in Minnesota Is Actually the Best
Summer is easy to like. It’s got sunshine, water sports, and the built-in nostalgia of time off from school. But winter? That takes some more gumption to appreciate. While other parts of the country are either freaking out over a light snowfall or counting down the days ’til spring, living in Minnesota -- where temps are regularly below freezing and the average annual snowfall is more than 70 inches up north -- means you learn to relish the freezing weather rather than hide from it. With the right mindset, winter is secretly the best time of the year, with plenty of cold-weather activities in the Twin Cities and around the state to keep you active and engaged with your fellow Minnesotans. From dog sledding to ice sculptures to a truly epic foraged tasting menu, we have a little bit of everything here to help you brighten up the coldest months.
