Where to Sleep & What to Eat in Ouray, Colorado. HeidiTown (6)

It had been a few years since we’d visited, and as we pulled into Ouray, late on a Thursday afternoon, I realized how much I’d missed this little village. Ouray encapsulate everything that is special about Colorado. We were spending the first night at Hotel Ouray, a beautifully remodeled building on the corner of 6th Ave. and Main Street. It’s perfectly located across from Mouse’s Chocolates, a must-stop for a

Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Colorado Springs I Did It. HeidiTown (2)

Here’s the thing, I am not an athlete. I love sports but I prefer to watch them with beer and wings. Over several summers I have had friends who have tried to get me to go SUPing with them, but I have not gone. I enjoy canoeing as I grew up paddling around lakes in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve even been in an ocean kayak which I enjoyed enormously, but

Quray, Colorado Hot Springs Pool & a Visit to the Source. HeidiTown (7)

Ouray is a quintessential Rocky Mountain town. There’s no ski slope here, but the Colorado vibe is strong. Tucked between soaring mountains of the San Juans, it has everything a person needs to make them happy, including a distillery.  It had been several years since we’d been in town and one huge change had taken place while we were away. The Ouray Hot Springs Pool, originally built in 1927, has

You Need to See The World of WearableArt™ Colorado Springs. HeidiTown (8)

Here’s a little story about me that you probably won’t believe but it is true. Today, I sport torn jeans and old t-shirts but there was a time when I filled binders with fashion drawings. That’s right, as a teenager, I designed dresses fit for queens of the runway. I never had plans of becoming a fashion designer, I knew my limitations, but I loved fashion.  Fast forward to this

Connecting with My Ancestors Throwing Axes in Ouray, Colorado. HeidiTown (3)

Here’s the real deal. When I found out we were going to throw axes during a trip to Ouray, Colorado, I wasn’t thrilled. After all, throwing axes sounds athletic and I am not athletic. It also sounds a bit like manual labor and I’m no fan of manual labor.  Fast forward to our trip to Ouray in July and we decide to throw axes after horseback riding and before heading

NEW this Summer at Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, Colorado. HeidiTown (2)

We love Glenwood Springs. It’s the town we’ve visited the most due to the fact that we started frequenting Glenwood long before I started HeidiTown. Ryan, who was raised in Colorado, spent several childhood vacations at the Glenwood Hot Springs Resort, and it’s a tradition for many Coloradan families. We’ve soaked at the hots springs pool many times and we even attended the 125th year anniversary of the pool in

Pedal Less, Bike More with Electric Bikes in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown.com 2

After a three-year hiatus, we spent three-nights in Steamboat Springs this past June. I enjoy this town’s mix of bikes and horses, hiking boots and cowboy boots and flat caps and cowboy hats. It’s a town that reflects Colorado in a big way and that’s why we’ve been visiting for so long (that, and one of my best friends moved to Steamboat more than a decade ago). We’ve ridden bikes

An Escape & Taco Celebration in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown (9)

I have a long relationship with Steamboat Springs. In fact, one of my best friends moved there more than a decade ago, so it has always been a place I’ve visited. However, with the craziness of life and HeidiTown, it had been three years since my last visit, so when we finally spent the weekend there in June, we were way overdue. An Outdoor Escape & Taco Celebration I haven’t
