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

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

Skijoring, Steamboat Spring

After the holidays, things slow down”¦ especially along the Front Range of Colorado, but there’s still tons of fun to be had, especially in the mountains. It seems that every mountain town and ski resort has a festival during the winter months. This is not a top 5 list because quite frankly I’m not sure how I would narrow it down to a top five; each town has a unique

Estes Park Winter Festival ice castle

The 3rd Annual Estes Park Winter Festival runs Friday, January 13 through Sunday, January 15, 2012. Last year, my husband and I decided to randomly check out this event without really knowing what to expect, and we had so much fun! In addition to the interactive ice castle, which is really great for kids, we loved the chili cook off. I think we sampled over forty green and red chilis.

A Note from the Mayor on July 29, 2018: HeidiTown has grown a lot since this article was posted in 2011, but this is still the most popular post. I welcome you to HeidiTown! Please spend some time browsing everything this little town has to offer when it comes to Colorado travel and festivals. I love Colorado during the holiday season. From Denver’s Larimer Street to the Christmas Market in

gas chamber at the Colorado Prison Museum

A friend of the Mayor’s, Erica Leigh Corbett, went on a paranormal investigation this Halloween and she was nice enough to write about her experiences for HeidiTown. This was an official paranormal investigation with the team from Mountain Peak Paranormal Investigators & Research out of Central Colorado. Erica traveled to Cañon City to go ghost hunting at the Colorado Prison Museum, which was once a real prison. Was Erica’s experience

Grand Lake, Colorado

  My birthday is in early October, and every year my husband takes me on a weekend get away to a new place within driving distance. I know, he’s pretty awesome. We’ve been all over the state and during this time of year the weather can be unpredictable, but we have fun no matter what Mother Nature throws at us.  It’s also off-season in Colorado – not quite ski season,
