I was asked recently to write a “tips for attending winter festivals” post. Well, I had already written that post way back in 2014.

I love fall, and I adore fall in Colorado. We may not have the reputation of places like New England or Wisconsin, but autumn in Colorado is quite grand, and perhaps it’s been overlooked for too long. The usual way to celebrate fall in Colorado is to go leaf peeping. Every online and print publication has articles about it; I published my 3-part Colorado fall travel series  earlier this month.

Steamboat Springs in Fall

Steamboat is not just a ski destination. I could write a speech on that subject. A good friend of mine moved there nearly a decade ago so I’ve become well acquainted with the town, and it’s a great place to become well acquainted with. This is a good fall destination because whether you drive the I70 to Silverthorne route or the Poudre Canyon route, the fall foliage is incredible. No

May 11th is National Train Day, which means it will be an excellent day to ride a train or visit a train museum, like the Colorado Railroad Museum or the Greeley Freight Station Museum. There are wonderful, year-round opportunities in Colorado to experience trains, both full-size passenger trains and model railroads. I have compiled a list of festivals and shows for you to consider this summer, fall and winter. I

Bikes & beer, good clean fun in Ft. Collins, Colorado

HeidiTown is not a calendar of events.  I simply share with you the events I find interesting and worthy of comment.   This weekend there just so happens to be one of those events in my backyard. Author of “Party Across America,” Michael Guerriero, describes Tour De Fat as a “rolling carnival on wheels that’s sponsored by a brewery with a conscience”¦ part costume party, part pedaling pandemonium, and 100%

Top 10 highlights of 2014, from the Mayor of HeidiTown, Colorado

It’s been another amazing year here at HeidiTown. My job as the Mayor of HeidiTown, and as a freelance writer, has taken me on many Colorado adventures, and it’s been my pleasure to share them with you here and on social media.

What's New in Steamboat Springs + OktoberWest Fun. HeidiTown (2)

I should disclose that I have been to Steamboat Springs more than once. Okay, a lot of times. One of my best friends lives there and so I’ve been going long before HeidiTown was a thing.   That being said, I always experience something new on each visit. And, I always make sure to take a photo of the Yampa River from the bridge across from Mountain Tap Brewery. I even

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
