What to do in Colorado on Valentine's Day (aka Stuff I Like), HeidiTown, Lisa Kral

When you’ve been doing this as long as I have, the holidays seem to occur at a faster rate every year. For instance, before I can take two breaths, I’m writing about Christmas again. Now it’s nearly February and I’ve already been writing Romance in the Rockies posts for The Heidi Guide. Of course, I believe we should celebrate love year round, but it’s nice to have one day to

When it Comes to Tacos, Longmont, Colorado is Winning. Benny's Tacos. HeidiTown.com

There are few cities along Colorado’s Front Range that have a better taco scene than Longmont—maybe none. Google search “tacos in Longmont” and tons of entries come up, from places like Fuzzy’s Tacos to lots of locally owned joints. I asked citizens on HeidiTown’s Facebook page their favorite taco in Colorado. National Taco Day inspired the question and I got a number of responses but was blown away by how

‘Tis the season for ghost and goblins, but it is also the season for something I consider to be much more beautiful. It still involves skeletons, however, Dia de los Muertos has a much deeper meaning that becomes clear at Longmont’s Dia de los Muertos. The city has been celebrating Dia de los Muertos for 18 years, and it’s the largest celebration of Day of the Dead in Colorado. This

Featured Festival Longmont Oktoberfest 2018 - HeidiTown - Firkin tapping

It’s time to Oktoberfest in the Longmont-style and that means great beer from Longmont breweries and some harmonica. That’s right, crowds at this Oktoberfest will enjoy the all-American, bluesy sound of JJ Grey & Mofro. The Left Hand Brewery Foundation hosts this shindig and they know how to throw a party. The 7th Longmont Oktoberfest starts Friday, October 5 st 5 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. This is the

Vive la France with Cheese & Cider in Longmont, Colorado. HeidiTown.com 1

Like many little girls, I had an obsession with all things French. I have no idea where this love originated but it led to four years of French class in high-school and two years of French language study in college. Today, I still have a healthy appreciation for French culture especially the food. Sadly, I’ve never been to France and several years ago, my husband and I began putting together

Longmont’s Wibby Brewing A Beer Love Story. HeidiTown.com

When I arrived at Wibby Brewing in Longmont on a sunny Friday afternoon, Ryan Wibby was outside throwing a ball for his three-year-old German Shepherd, Mickey. Mickey’s intense focus on the ball is a lot like his owner’s intense concentration on beer, an unwavering 11-year immersion in his craft that resulted in a medal win at the Great American Beer Festival this past year. The History Ryan Wibby’s beer journey

… and now for something completely different. I’m always encouraging festival organizers to do something that sets their event apart. This is an example of a festival that’s doing just that. Nitro Fest is one of Longmont’s most anticipated beer events, because it’s not just about the beer, although that’s a big component. This will be the fourth year of this event that’s one-part circus, one-part dance party, and one-part

A Weekend Itinerary for Longmont, Colorado, HeidiTown.com. flag sign

Published in 2017 I like to keep things real here on HeidiTown and so I will start this blog post by telling you a personal story about Longmont. When Ryan and I decided to move out of Denver in the early 2000s, we looked into Longmont and decided it was a big nope. There just wasn’t much going on in the town. Fast forward to today and I think we

Cheese Making Class in Longmont is Deliciously Fun Becca Heins, HeidiTown.com

Making cheese is almost as fun as eating cheese, but in the cheese making classes in Longmont, you get to do both. Back in April, Ryan and I took a Flavored Cheeses class with The Art of Cheese in Longmont, Colorado. It was part of a weekend visit where we explored a familiar town in an entirely new way; via trolley and via foot. There are more Longmont posts to

Brewery Hopping on Longmont’s BrewHop Trolley (4)

I know it’s a big ask, but every town with more than two breweries should have a BrewHop Trolley. Not only is it fun, but it’s a safe, efficient way to explore a town’s breweries. On Saturdays and Sundays, Longmont, Colorado’s BrewHop Trolley drives a repeating route between Longmont’s many breweries and brewpubs. There’s a schedule so you don’t have to guess when and where you’ll jump on and off.
