Affordable Snowmass Yes, You Can HeidiTown (10)

This was our third trip to Snowmass, and I have finally discovered that Snowmass is Aspen. Yep, Snowmass does not have its own address. It is a part of Aspen. Now that I know, the restaurant prices make more sense. I hadn’t noticed extraordinarily high prices here before inflation, but now they are a little painful. However, on this visit, we found a few ways to make Snowmass an affordable

Two Nights & More Tacos in Tempe, Arizona. HeidiTown (1)

This wasn’t a road trip. Occasionally, I get on a plane, and when I do, I usually write about it.  My college years are a time I remember fondly. Partly, because I was really, quite good at college, all of it, from the academics to the parties. As we walked around Arizona State University in Tempe last week, I realized I’d need a Stanley Cup, huge headphones, and probably a

The Themed Road Trip: A Fun Way to Travel

A festival or event is a great reason to road trip, and I still do it, albeit less often these days. So, what gets us on the road? For some, it’s a visit to see family, but for many of us, we need a raison d’être or, in this case, a raison de faire un road trip! Ryan and I have been exploring themed travel (beyond festivals) for the last

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Seafood, Swings & Ocean Sounds. HeidiTown (7)

I am aware that this is a blog about road trips. However, I am a writer, and the few times I actually ride in planes, a story about the trip ends up on HeidiTown, even if I wasn’t planning an article. It just happens. After all, I am the Mayor everywhere, and this trip was no exception. When my friend Sharon texted me and asked if I wanted to go

A Northern New Mexico Road Trip The Rest of the Story. HeidiTown (6)

We did a lot in Northern New Mexico, but only scratched the surface. Here are a few of the excursions that didn’t fit into any of the previous posts about the trip. One morning, after eating breakfast at our Airbnb, we took a drive. We drove from Dixon to Taos on Hwy 68 and then took State Road 518 to Peñasco, part of which is referred to as the High

Light up the Holidays Green Chile & Hockey in Loveland, Colorado. HeidiTown (header)

Most longtime citizens of HeidiTown know that I live in Loveland, Colorado. We moved here in 2003 from Denver, and have seen the area undergo a lot of changes. One of the best things that has happened to this region’s holiday season is Loveland Wonder Winterlights. This extravaganza makes this city one of the finest when it comes to holiday happenings, and worth a visit to Loveland. Located at Chapungu

15 Years of HeidiTown (1)

Life before 2020 is still a little blurry, but thanks to Linkedin anniversary reminders, I know that HeidiTown turned 15 this month. A lot has changed in 15 years. The face of travel and the festival industry has transformed significantly, especially over the last couple of years. I’ve witnessed a lot, and while Colorado has been on a continual upswing when it comes to festivals and travel, a World Wide

BBQ Best Road Trip Memphis TN HeidiTown 19

I am honored to be a guest blogger on the HeidiTown site and I hope to bring as much fun to my journey as Heidi does to hers. I will start by saying I’m no stranger to road trips and remember as a kid driving across Wyoming to see Thermopolis and the beauty of Yellowstone National Park.  After college, I took my new car across the USA to see Tennessee

Playing Favorites The North Fork Valley of Colorado. HeidiTown (18)

I get asked a lot about my favorite destination in Colorado. That is a really difficult question. I tend to fall in love with every place I visit. However, if I had to come up with a true favorite it would be a toss up between the San Luis Valley and the North Fork Valley. Both have been the destinations of wedding anniversaries including our most recent 20th anniversary. We

Musings by a Road Trip Addict Why Do We Travel HeidiTown.com

I watch a lot of travel shows and follow a lot of travel writers, travel bloggers and travel influencers on social media. It seems like people travel for a lot of serious reasons. They want to expand their minds, explore new cultures, and learn about the world. These are all noble reasons to travel. However, no one ever says, “I want to travel because it’s fun.” And the truth is,
