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
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.

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,
Tomorrow I will stand beside a very good friend as she ties the knot in Estes Park, Colorado. She has had a longtime love affair with the town; she and her fiance had their first date there, got engaged there and will now be married there.

The community is nestled 20 minutes northeast of
The Mayor never used to be much of a car person, however, buying a car with a V6, along with a newly developed love affair with Top Gear on the BBC, has changed all that.

The orchestra, like the rest of Greeley, has a rich history and the Greeley History Museum is the place to go for the full story. Current exhibits include a comprehensive look at the 100-year Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra, and the history of Weld County’s many, many
It’s true that kids run and play in South Park, and the occasional burro can be seen trotting through town. It is also true that South Park is located in the Colorado Rockies. However, it’s probably not the town that that’s popped into to your mind. Find out more about the real South Park City in my new post by clicking here.
Spring has sprung in HeidiTown. The birds are singing, the fields outside of town are greening up and there’s a feeling of warmth in the air. This time of year puts me in the mood for road trips and Sunday afternoon drives. Metromix Denver recently released an article naming the 25 small Colorado towns to visit under $100. There was some misinformation in this article – Windsor was not “destroyed”
