Treat Yourself to Vail, Colorado & the Four Seasons. Thew view from our room's balcony at Four Seasons. HeidiTown

I’ve become quite familiar with Vail, Colorado over the years, and I’ve become quite the fan. In addition to being a World Class ski resort, Vail is a foodie destination, shopping haven and a top spot for adventure seekers.  While you can find “fancy” in Vail, it’s mostly laid back, even at Four Seasons Vail where I stayed, along with my friend Karen, earlier this summer. The words Four Seasons, evoke

Farm to Fiddle Summer Festival encompasses everything a summer festival should be; there’s fresh veggies, singing and dancing, chickens, a climbing wall, locally made beverages and so much more. All of these things are why I love Hotchkiss and the entire North Fork Valley, an area that is located about an hour southeast of Grand Junction and four and a half hours from Denver via McClure Pass. I’ve called the

There are a handful of festivals that I’ve been involved with since the beginning and Hops & Harley is one of those fests. This year is the sixth Hops & Harley, hosted by City Star Brewing. I support this festival as an in-kind sponsor because I believe so strongly in the mission of the event. The mission is to educate the public about the commercial dog breeding industry, also known

Be the First of Your Friends to Check-in to These Three Colorado Towns. Trinidad, CO Architecture 1. HeidiTown.com

I love discovering out of the way places, the spots that haven’t become overrun with tourists. Over my nearly two decades of living and traveling in Colorado, this has become increasingly difficult. With the population growth of the Front Range and the popularity of Colorful Colorado, nearly every destination, big and small, is getting covered by everyone from travel bloggers to various news outlets. However, the three towns I am

I’ve lived in Loveland, Colorado for 15 years, and in that time I’ve watched the city’s food scene grow and change. There are still have some old-favorites around such as The Black Steer (since 1966), a throwback steakhouse that’s our go-to spot for an excellent steak and top-notch service. Loveland also is home to newer eateries such as Door 222 Food & Drink, the restaurant that helped kick-off today’s growing

Map Out Your Plan of Attack & Hop on the Colorado Spirits Trail, HeidiTown.com

I was introduced to the craft beer movement in college where I spent more than a few hours throwing back pints at Boundary Bay Brewery in Bellingham while attending Western Washington University in the late 1990s. To say it’s been fun to watch the industry grow is an understatement. It’s been outstanding! Fast forward to 2018, and last month, I helped celebrate another craft booze industry that I’ve been watch

Visit Another Planet Arizona’s Desert Botanical Garden. HeidiTown (6)

My first cactus sighting happened when I was 24-years-old. I’d just moved to Colorado from the Pacific Northwest with my then boyfriend, now husband, Ryan. We were hiking in Roxborough State Park, and I became obsessed with these tiny cactus plants growing next to the trail. Much to Ryan’s amusement, each time I spotted one my enthusiasm increased. You can imagine my excitement when I visited the Desert Botanical Garden

Burritos, Bikes & Puppies in Boulder - A New First National Bank Opens in Boulder, Colorado

When I was approached by First National Bank (FNB) last year and asked to work with them on their #WeGrowAsOne Campaign, I hesitated because let’s face it, banks aren’t considered the purveyors of fun. However, I did know that FNB was very involved in festivals and community events and my personal FNB branch, where I’ve been banking for nearly a decade, is like “Cheers” — everyone knows my name and
