Snow Mountain Ranch, A Home Base for Exploring Dining in Grand County

There’s a lot to love about Grand County, especially Snow Mountain Ranch. We’ve become well-acquainted with this YMCA property over the years. We’ve stayed in nearly every accommodation, including the lodge. On our June trip, we stayed in a cabin named Wildrose that overlooked a green meadow. Several times a day, a line of horses from the Snow Mountain Ranch Stables would plod by, happy visitors on their backs. Our

Vail, Colorado is Open for Business The Dining Scene. HeidiTown (3)

We visited Vail last weekend and I plan to write about what we did there, but first and foremost you should 1) know that it is open and 2) know that restaurants are open. Let’s face it, I go to Vail to eat all the things. Seriously. We stayed in a one-bedroom, pet-friendly, condo at Antlers at Vail. Fritzi got to go, making this her second trip to Vail and

Liven Things Up This Winter with Food & Festival Fun. HeidiTown (3)

‘Tis the season when winter sets in, and not in a good way. Here on Colorado’s Front Range, we are experiencing a dreary day. No snow is falling and it looks like Seattle-weather (something I am all too familiar with from childhood). So what’s on tap to bring joy to this gray, wintry world?  If I am planning, I am happy. A plan means something to look forward to, and

Dine in Estes Park BBQ, Buffets & Pizza, Pizza, Pizza. HeidiTown (12)

Food is probably the last thing on your mind on the day after Thanksgiving. However, it might be that you’d rather not hear about turkey or mashed potatoes, so I will avoid those subjects. Finding a restaurant in Estes Park isn’t hard, but finding a place with good food and service is another matter. This is, after all, a touristy village and good staff members are hard to find in

Guest post by Angela Rose If you live anywhere near Denver, Colorado, or are at all familiar with the world of craft beer, you’ve probably heard of the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) organized by the Brewers Association (BA). Now in its 38th year, the GABF is the nation’s largest ticketed beer festival and commercial competition, drawing together hundreds of breweries and tens of thousands of beer lovers for three

Eating all the Tacos in Colorado Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown (2)

Here’s the deal, tacos are my favorite. Unless you have just arrived in HeidiTown, you’re probably well aware of my passion for this particular food. I also love green chiles and I don’t care if they come from Colorado or New Mexico, but I digress. This post is about all about tacos.  By the way, if you aren’t watching “Taco Chronicles” on Netflix, do it. It’s like this show was

A Quick Trip to One Block of Glenwood Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown (4)

Where can you find, Indian food, a good night’s sleep and breakfast in one block? In Glenwood Springs, of course.  We ventured farther than one block on our summer trip to Glenwood Springs. We went to the hot springs pool because it is tradition, but we didn’t go anywhere else.  RELATED: New this Summer at Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, Colorado You see, I experienced a mind-numbing migraine while in town,

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
