An Epic Hamburger, Excellent Pizza & Best Lunch Deal in the Mountains Georgetown, Colorado. HeidiTown (8)

Georgetown is a hidden town with hidden gems. For years, it ran under the radar as it was tucked under Interstate 70. The latter was what helped keep it a secret, despite being just 45 minutes west of Denver. It’s not a secret anymore and these three restaurants definitely shouldn’t be a secret either. Ryan, my plus one on most HeidiTown trips, couldn’t make it up until Saturday, so on

Where to Drink in Casper, Wyoming. HeidiTown (1)

About two weeks ago, we visited Capser, Wyoming. It’s about four hours from Denver, but only around three from where we live in Northern Colorado. Art, history and kayaking were on the agenda, highlighted by a beer festival, and browsing a rather happening downtown. I’ve already written about the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center and Independence Rock, and kayaking the Fremont Canyon. Today, I want to give you the rest

Finding Food & Other Fun Stuff in Frisco, Colorado

Earlier this month, we were in Frisco, Colorado. It’s located in Summit County along Interstate 70, just a little over an hour west of Denver. An easy weekend escape for residents of the Front Range, it offers tons of outdoor activity, dining, shopping and best of all? Cooler weather. After all, the town is at 9,000 feet above sea level. Where to Eat With the Dog in Frisco On our

Glenwood Springs, Colorado Bring the Dog, Bring a Bathing Suit and Go. HeidiTown.com 1

As a travel writer specializing in Colorado, I am not supposed to play favorites. I try not to, however, I think we’ve visited Glenwood Springs more than any other place in the state. Does that make it a favorite? You be the judge.  It all started before I moved to Colorado. We flew in and drove back, making a stop at Glenwood Springs for a hike at Hanging Lake and

Vista Verde Ranch Come for the Fun Stay for the Food. HeidiTown (7)

No one stays at Vista Verde Ranch for the food, at least not the first time, but if they come back, it might be for the food. It is that good.  Meals at Vista Verde have changed a little in order to keep guests safe during the current pandemic. However, what hasn’t changed is the quality of the food. There are three meals served daily in the dining room, plus

Ryan’s Travel Memories from the Road (Fishing in Saratoga, Wyoming). HeidiTown.com

I am not traveling right now and for the last of couple of weeks, I’ve written about my travel memories from the road. I’ve been the Mayor of HeidiTown for a long time, so I have more than a few. Saturday is Ryan’s birthday, and that made me think of his favorite HeidiTown trips. He has two, the other was playing cowboy at Latigo Ranch in Kremmling.  For those of

Eating Our Way Through Colorado Springs Green Chile, Bagels & Dessert. HeidiTown (8)

It’s been a stressful year, and many of you didn’t take that vacation you had been planning. Understandable in the time of Coronavirus, however, it’s time for a quick getaway. Colorado Springs is an excellent place to spend a safe weekend, away from the worries of life. At the end of August, we were booked at Hotel Eleganté at the south end of the city. We had stayed across the

Chubby, in a Good Way A Korean Restaurant in Colorado Springs. HeidiTown.com

When it comes to food I will try anything once (unless it is moving) and the hotter the bite the better. I am also a quarter Korean (my mom is half Korean), and recently discovered the Netflix show with Chef and Korean, David Chang called, “Ugly Delicious.” I have become quite enamored with the show and realized while watching, that I haven’t really connected with Korean food. In my defense,

Football Season & Elway's New Wine, The Farm Collection by 7Cellars

I don’t do posts in exchange for items like clothing, pasta sauce or gadgets. Quite frankly, that style of blogging has never appealed to me. However, when I was approached to write about wine by John Elway, I was interested.  Not only are we die-hard football fans in this house, but Ryan grew up watching Elway lead the Broncos to two Superbowl wins. We both play in several Fantasy Football

One Night in Laramie, Wyoming: A Green Chile to Remember

I feel like “one night in Laramie” would be an excellent title to a country music song. If a songwriter writes that song, I want credit for the title. We spent one night in Laramie, Wyoming earlier this month and it was a stellar trip. It started with chasing wildflowers in the Snowy Range. I found them. In fact, I found a lot of them!
