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

Come for the Party, Stay for the Party: Breckenridge, Colorado

We took a break from visiting Breckenridge because we’d frequented this Colorado mountain town so much that some HeidiTown citizens thought we lived there. So, I didn’t put it on the travel list for a few years (then the pandemic showed up, and before long, it’s been five years). I hadn’t been a judge at Ullr Fest parade for nearly a decade, but they asked me this year. I was

Vail Vibes: Travel Colorado Style in the Mountains

Over the past 15 years or so, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Vail quite a few times. However, before getting first-hand knowledge of the place, I had preconceived notions. Mainly, I thought of it as a little stuck-up. On one of my first visits, I was enjoying a glass of wine at a bar when I made friends with the locals next to me. They invited me on the

New & Old at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Vail Valley

I grew up in a home filled with live music. My dad is a guitarist, my mom plays piano and everyone sings. As an adult, when I get the opportunity to see live music I jump at it. I especially love singer/songwriter musicians. So, when Vilar Performing Art Center (VPAC) inquired about marketing with HeidiTown, I eagerly accepted. After experiencing the venue this weekend, I am glad that I did.

Colorful Colorado My Top Color Moments - Not a ChatGPT Post Grand Lake 2015, HeidiTown.com

There will be numerous “leaf-peeping” articles published over the next couple of weeks. Colorado has become insanely popular for the activity, and it’s not surprising. This state’s numerous aspen groves turn gold and we have bushes that turn a stunning red. The phrase on our welcome signs is no joke—Colorful Colorado exists! Instead of giving readers driving directions to see color, so that their vehicle can join the winding train

Winter Park, Colorado Why Fritzi, the Dog, is a Big Fan. HeidiTown (14)

Want to know why your dog will love Grand County? And you too? The average August temperature is 74 degrees.   We’ve been heading to Grand County, home to Winter Park, Granby, Grand Lake, and more, for many years. I’ve been visiting for about 23 years. Ryan’s been going most of his life. However, I have never, until this trip to attend Winter Park Brew Fest, stayed so close to Rendevous

Puppy Mill Awareness Day 2023 HeidiTown (2)

I have supported this cause from its start in 2014. It’s Puppy Mills Awareness Day (formerly Hops & Harley). One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event go to Harley Dream. This cause is close to my heart for several reasons but mainly, I love dogs. I mean, I really, really do. I think they are the best thing that has happened to the human race. Therefore, the story

Get off the Interstate Take Loveland Pass Colorado HeidiTown (1)

I’ve been extremely lucky to have been on many of Colorado’s roads. However, we usually skip Loveland Pass because it adds a significant amount of time if one is traveling on Interstate 70 (with a few exceptions). For those who don’t know, Loveland Pass was rendered somewhat unnecessary in 1973 by the construction of the Eisenhower Tunnel. It’s not totally unnecessary because semis and other vehicles utilize it when the
