Now for Something Completely Different Moxy Denver Cherry Creek 1. HeidiTown.com

The word “unique” is overused, especially in travel writing, but the truth is, the Moxy Denver Cherry Creek is a unique hotel. Where else will you find a vending machine that sells sunglasses and beef jerky? Where else in the Rocky Mountains, will you find plastic flamingos neatly arranged on your hotel bed? When I moved to Colorado in the late 1990s, Cherry Creek was a much more subdued place

(Dates updated for 2019) This post is going live on a warm September week in 2018, but I was in the mountains this weekend and it looks like fall up there. We’ll be pulling out the scarfs and boots before we know it. Here are four ways to embrace fall in Colorado. Doughnut & Coffee Tasting in Denver This sounds like the perfect activity for a fall visit to Denver,

Stay & Play in Denver’s Dairy Block The Maven Hotel & Baseball, HeidiTown.com

Long before Denver was a trendy urban metropolis, I worked near the capitol building, and even in the early part of the 2000s, I loved the Mile High City. Today, however, a weekend in Denver has never been more fun.     One especially entertaining spot to visit is the newly renovated Dairy Block. Located a block southwest of Coors Field, this revitalized section of the city features a hotel and

5 Picture Perfect Colorado Summer Towns HeidiTown Photo by KathrynLair_LastDollarRoad

I’m a big fan of fall, and every September you’ll find me running around the state with my Canon in hand. However, I must admit that Colorado’s summers are truly outstanding. I just got back from Vail where the season is in full swing and it was a colorful reminder of how gorgeous the mountains can be at this time of year. Ouray, Colorado What’s better than a summertime soak

A Denver Tequila & Taco Anniversary Outing 1

As many of my social media followers know, Ryan and I recently celebrated 16-years of marriage in Denver this month, however, that was not where we were supposed to be celebrating. Six months ago, we’d booked a trip to Mexico with the sincere belief that our nearly 15-year-old German Shepherd wasn’t going to make it until May. I’m grateful that we were wrong, she’s still here and this makes us

I’m a small town girl at heart, but I love the city during the holidays and Denver is especially Christmassy at this time of year. This past weekend, we visited Denver with the intention of immersing ourselves in the holiday spirit and we accomplished our mission. Ryan and I arrived in the city around 1 p.m. and checked in early to our hotel, the brand new Le Méridien in downtown

What’s better than a day at the Denver Art Museum? A day at the art museum followed by a stay at The Oxford Hotel in downtown Denver. Earlier this month we participated in The Oxford Hotel’s Denver Art Museum package which includes VIP access to Her Paris: Women Artists in the Age of Impressionism. It’s the perfect combination because the woman featured in this exhibit would have likely stayed at

Featured Festival Denver Maker Faire 2017

You need to attend a Maker Faire in order to truly understand the powerful nature of these events. First and foremost, you will see children of all ages engaging with something other than a screen, and you’ll walk away with undeniable proof that children are curious beings. I recently attended a maker sort of event in Boulder that proved to me that if you give a kid a cardboard box

Sculptures by Alexander Calder are on display at the Denver Botanic Gardens through September 24, 2017.

I admit that I have a small addiction to shooting flowers, as well as birds, landscapes, and animals at the zoo, but flowers are my favorite thing to shoot. There’s no better place to shoot flowers than at the Denver Botanic Gardens. The person who accompanies me to the gardens, usually Ryan, ends up doing a lot of standing around, however, I’d argue that there are a lot worse placed in
