The final post is all about the touristy activities you shouldn’t miss. When I visit a new place, I usually try to blend in with the locals, but I’ll be honest, sometimes being a tourist is a lot of fun. We

The following is the transcript and audio from HeidiTown.com’s weekly segment on KRFC 88.9 FM. Listen to the audio –> HERE. Hi, my name is Heidi, and I’m the Mayor of HeidiTown.com, a blog about Colorado events, festivals and road trips. If you are anything like me, this is the time of year where I get a little down. Thankfully, the sun seems to always shine in Colorado, so that
