Living Large with the Dog at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort & Spa. HeidiTown (2)

With a magical fire bench in the entry and a snow-white mountain view framed by windows in the bar, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort & Spa makes a statement from the moment a guest arrives. A few weeks ago, I was an invitee to a Park Hyatt media dinner featuring the property’s new executive chef, Santosh Koradi.  The hotel is at Beaver Creek Resort in Avon, Colorado, about 15 minutes

Heidi & Ryan My Big Day Group Wedding in Loveland

It seems that all writers write similar Valentine’s Day getaway articles around this time of year. I know I have. So, I decided to shake it up a little and write something a little bit different. You can shape your own adventure but I hope this will give you a good place to start. Grab your sweetheart or just a good friend and get ready for a Valentine’s Day escapade! 

Spend St. Patrick’s Day in One of These Colorado Towns 1. HeidiTown

I want to start this post by telling you who it is not for. It is not for those with wee children looking for face painting and parade information. It’s also not for those who think green beer, whiskey shots and a DJ make an excellent St. Patrick’s Day. To me, a good St. Patrick’s Day means old friends and new friends, a bar where talking to new and old

The Mayor Slurps Vegan Soup & Likes It SUPPAS, Made in Colorado. HeidiTown 2

I do not usually participate in the exchange of products for a review. However, I was approached about SUPPAS by a person I’ve worked with for a long time and I like her. Plus, I really like that this product is made right here in Colorado. In fact, it’s made right down the street from me in Longmont. SUPPAS by Future Fit Foods makes plant-based soups that take eco-friendly and

White Christmas . BDT Stage . Glenn Ross-98

I have not been in the Christmas spirit. It’s hard to be cheery about the holidays when it is 62 degrees outside. However, when I got the chance to go to “White Christmas” at BTD Stage in Boulder, I jumped at it. Not only do I love the story and thought it would help me get in a Christmassy mood, but I also can’t remember the last time I saw

Taste of Vail 2021, photo by Zach Mahone (used with permission)

If you haven’t visited Vail in the fall, it’s where summer and autumn collide in the most appealing way. Brightly colored flowers fill brimming flower boxes while pops of yellow appear on the mountain. Shadows of petals and bronze sculptures grow long as the town sashays towards ski season. Accentuated by bites of lamb, sips of wine and incredible scenery, the 2021 Taste of Vail may have been small, but

Fun With Your Fur Friend in Fickle Park, Berthoud, Colorado. Puppy Mill Awareness Day 2

Did you know that 75% of Americans own at least one dog? I believe it because, at one point, we were the only people on our block with one dog, everyone else had two! And now for an unhappy statistic. Puppy mills are directly responsible for 75% of the dogs in shelters and rescues. And the topic of puppy mills is something that the average person knows little about. However,

An Impressive Level of Authenticity Hotel de Paris, Georgetown, Colorado. HeidiTown (9)

I am writing an update to my 2014 post, “Hotel de Paris, a gem hidden in plain sight.” As readers will know, I visited Georgetown recently, and of course, I popped into the museum. I can’t visit the town without stopping. After all, Hotel de Paris is my favorite museum, and here’s why.  Ninety percent of the artifacts in the museum date to the time when this was the original

Sweet Easy, Georgetown, Colorado. HeidiTown Featured Image

Let’s face it, one does not visit Georgetown, Colorado, for the nightlife. This charming, 1800s mining town, 45 minutes west of Denver, gets quiet after dark. However, there are a few places that stay open late where visitors can go for a drink and a laugh. We visited Georgetown at the end of July and stayed downtown at Rose Street Bed & Breakfast. We stayed here 11 years ago when
