A New Restaurant in Leadville, Colorado & Old Favorites 13, HeidiTown.com

We’ve been spending time in Leadville for the good part of two decades and we’ve seen this town go through some changes. However, it’s never lost that Wild West charm that makes it an authentic slice of Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. We visited Leadville in December and it was frigid. Even with gloves on my fingers were stiff and nearly frozen as we walked around town. Leadville should be

Eat All the Things A Delicious 3-Day Dining Guide to Crested Butte. downtown Crested Butte. HeidiTown.com

Crested Butte, Colorado is not short on restaurants. In fact, between Crested Butte Mountain Resort and the small Town of Crested Butte, there are around 60 restaurants, so it would be difficult to eat all the things in Crested Butte during one three-night stay, but we tried. It turns out, Crested Butte is a very good food town. Here’s where we ate and what we thought about each and every

Meet Me in Meeker, Part Two Staying & Dining in Meeker, Colorado (1)

Last week, I shared with you part one of my two-part “Meet Me in Meeker” series. In last week’s post, I wrote about the surprisingly vibrant downtown we encountered. Click here to read it. This week, I want to introduce you to where we ate, drank and stayed in this fun little northwest Colorado town. As a reminder, we were in town for the Jammin’ Lamb Festival, a culinary event

How we ended up in Minturn, Colorado & Why You Might Want to Go. HeidiTown (6)

Sometimes the best part of traveling is when something unexpected occurs. Even getting stuck on Vail Pass in a snowstorm can result in a nice long soak at Glenwood Hot Springs, which is what happened to us in 2014. It wasn’t a snowstorm that brought us unexpectedly to Minturn last month – it was Record Store Day. If you are an avid collector of vinyl, like my husband, Ryan, you

New Things to Do in Breckenridge, Colorado. View from Residence Inn pool. HeidiTown.com

Breckenridge is a town we know well and many of my readers do too. So on our last trip, we decided to do some things in Breckenridge that we’d never done before. That included the fat bike tour that I wrote about earlier this month. New Hotel in Breckenridge It also included staying at a brand new hotel, the Residence Inn by Marriott.

Making new traditions in the familar town of Winter Park. Riding mountain bikes. HeidiTown.com

Winter Park fits Ryan and I like an old glove. I think this is true for many Coloradans; especially Coloradans like Ryan who grew up skiing at Winter Park Resort. I’ve been visiting for 16 years, and the town’s got a comfortable, familiar ambiance that I love. However, if you’re anything like us, when you get comfortable with a destination you tend to visit the same places on each visit.

HeidiTown Rant: Serving breakfast, open at 8 a.m.?

I have a major complaint. If a restaurant wants to get in on breakfast service they need to open at least by 7 a.m., maybe earlier. Most people work. Yep, it’s true. And most working people need to be at work by 8 a.m. My husband and I love going out for breakfast on a weekday, especially a Monday. We are business owners, so it gives us some time to

Mad about Mandolin Cafe

I recently discovered Mandolin Cafe  at 210 East 4th Street in Loveland, Colorado.   This relatively new addition to downtown, is a funky coffee shop  with a musical soul. Last Thursday evening,  Stoll Vaughan, a singer/songwriter and stellar guitarist  played a free show  at Mandolin Cafe. Vaughan had approached owner Alex Zoll about playing at the  coffee shop  after Vaughan opened for The Elders at The Rialto Theater in Loveland,
