Luna Theatre, Clayton, New Mexico, HeidiTown

There is one feature of many downtowns that always gets my attention and that is the old movie theatre (or theater). You know what I’m talking about. It is sometimes that boarded-up vintage building with a dirty, marque that reads: “For Sale.” Sadly. this is something I’ve witnessed during my travels. However, I’m seeing more and more theatres that are open, and some showing first-run movies. Several springs ago, on

Two Nights & More Tacos in Tempe, Arizona. HeidiTown (1)

This wasn’t a road trip. Occasionally, I get on a plane, and when I do, I usually write about it.  My college years are a time I remember fondly. Partly, because I was really, quite good at college, all of it, from the academics to the parties. As we walked around Arizona State University in Tempe last week, I realized I’d need a Stanley Cup, huge headphones, and probably a

A Small Town Worth Visiting in Colorado: Meeker

I’m going to write a series of “small town articles.” I won’t be highlighting the usual Colorado towns that appear on all the “hot” Rocky Mountain town lists. While I love those too, for good reasons, these are the kind of small towns that do not come with built-in nightlife.

I name a few in this post, but there are so many more (I even have pictures of a lot that I couldn’t share because I don’t have three days to write this post, and you don’t have three hours to read this post). By the way, these are views you can see mostly by

Don't be Bored This Winter Festivals Abound. HeidiTown

HeidiTown got its real start when it became all about festivals around 2010. This virtual town was around before then, but once I started concentrating on events and festivals, things took off and the town grew.  I thought I’d return to my roots and share a few upcoming festivals that should be on your radar. Being blessed to have attended a lot of events over the years, these are ones

A Show in the Mountains Beaver Creek, Colorado HeidiTown (5)

Spending a weekend in Beaver Creek makes me feel like a fancy person, which I am not, but I play one at this Colorado ski resort. By the way, Beaver Creek Resort is in Avon, Colorado, one exit past Vail going west on Interstate 70. Of all the places in the Rocky Mountains my job has allowed me to experience, this is the most glamorous purpose-built ski resort. However, we
