Kenosha Pass Sept 19 2009

Post Updated: September 14, 2017 It seems that every Colorado travel writer has authored an article about scenic fall drives around our beautiful state. I’ve decided to do the same, but with a twist. With gas prices going back up (again), it’s hard to justify driving miles and miles simply to take photographs of aspen trees, however, I’m going to share with you three scenic autumn drives around Colorado that

Gondola in Telluride

Colorado is now home to the most challenging cycling race in the United States, the US Pro Cycling Challenge. The race is 683 miles, attracts world class cyclists and winds its way through some of Colorado’s most charming towns. There are 126 riders in the race from 24 countries including Boulder, Colorado’s own Taylor Phinney, who secured two fourth place finishes at the London, Olympics. The US Pro Challenge gets

Ten years ago, if you asked a Coloradan where Loveland was they’d point to the mountains. This is because, for many years, Loveland Ski Area was better known than the city with the same name, but that has changed. The City of Loveland is working hard to make sure everyone knows that they are open for business, and last week I had the opportunity to attend the unveiling of Loveland’s

Keystone Reosrt River Run bike shot

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend TBEX, a travel blogger, writer and photographer conference that just happened to be held in Keystone, Colorado this year. TBEX attracts attendees from around the globe, and this was a chance for Colorado to show off – and it did just that. On the first evening, we drank champagne aboard gondolas that transported us to a five-star experience on top of

My husband and I just celebrated 10 years of marriage in style. We spent a high-end Denver weekend with a trip to the Yves St. Laurent exhibit at the Denver Art Museum and a stay at the Brown Palace Hotel. Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective at the Denver Art Museum I sport a rather laidback Colorado style, so folks may be surprised that as a little girl I filled binders

The past in living color at History Colorado

I had an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the new History Colorado museum in Denver this week, and I am so excited to share this blog post with you. I grew up visiting museums, and I really love them, so I’m not completely unbiased when it comes to writing about museums. However, the fact that I have toured so many makes me a pseudo museum expert, and most

Grimm Bros Brewhouse

I leave the serious beer blogging to people like Dave at FermentedlyChallenged.com, but I believe spending a lovely afternoon at the brewery is an event well suited for a write up on HeidiTown. Northern Colorado is filled with friendly people, lots of bikes, and if you toss a stone you’ll surely hit a brewery, and while the area is home to some very well known breweries, there are a few

Colorado has all the right ingredients for romance; soaring, snow-capped peaks, cold, wintry nights, hot summer days and charming communities rich with history and picturesque architecture. So without further ado, here are my picks for the top 5 romantic towns in Colorado, and where to steal a kiss at each destination. Loveland, Colorado.   At first glance, this work-a-day town might not seem a fitting candidate for romance. Despite having

Stagestop Saloon in Jefferson Colorado

If you’ve been following HeidiTown for any length of time, you know I’m a big sports fan – especially football and futbol. My husband and I never miss a Bronco game, even when we’re on the road. Whether we’re in Oregon visiting my folks, on vacation in Mexico or just on the road in Colorado, we will find a place to watch the game. So in honor of Superbowl Sunday
