I'm in loveland, Co right now at the embassy suites for vacation. Where should I visit?
Rocky Mountain National Park. Estes Park.
34 west to Estes Park.
there's a neat meadery in Boulder. heck, Boulder's pretty cool, 'cept for the Liberals. there's a great place for breakfast in Boulder called the Golden Buff. best huevos in the world. mighty fine french toast, too.
too bad you're there when the snow is, as the Mt Evans highway is breathtaking...
there's Pikes Peak (the road's closed this time of year), the Air Force Academy, and Garden of the Gods (always open) down in Colorado Springs.
i envy you. there is NO other state i'd rather vacation in, than Colorado. and this is from a person who has spent a week in every season in Alaska.
front range gun club!
go out into the mountains too.
There has to be more to this story. Like, Loveland isn't exactly on the list of places to vacation in Colorado.
Loveland that is a little south of Fort Collins, or Loveland the ski town? I live in CO and there are two different Lovelands...
If it's the one near Fort Collins, there is the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, and if you go south on I25 a little ways (20ish minutes) there is a nice Bass Pro Shops.
I was there for training in January and February. Nice small town, lot of local eateries are pretty good.
Like others here said, go 34W to Estes Park (it was closed last month due to snow). Beautiful scenery there in the Rockies. you could also try ice fishing on Boyd Lake (I think that's the name).
Fort Collins has a micro-bewery or two I'm told. Didn't go as I don't drink, but if you do, check it out.
Also, you're not too far from the Coors Brewery. Took a tour there about 18 years ago.....
Enjoy your vacation!
If you're interested in a gun store to visit, Jensen Arms.
If its still open head north on 287 and hit Daisy Dukes used to be a good time or could have gone down to nederland for dead guy days. 34 west may still be closed 1mile east of Estes park due to road work du its a nice drive around the other way in to through lyons
i didn't know 34 was closed--- the drive through Lyons is not as pretty of a drive into Estes in my opinion, but if it's the only way, it's still worth it.
DO NOT SPEED IN LYONS!!!
There really isn't much that is really interesting in Loveland. Jensen's is pretty cool though.
34 W to Estes. If you brought your fly rod, the Big T is a great trout stream. RMNP is a great place to visit any time of year, and the Stanley Hotel (the Shining) is a neat visit.
If you travel down US 36, you will end up in Lyons. Oscar Blues is a neat local Brew Pub with some live music. Longmont has Left Hand Brewery and the Pumphouse as pub offerings. Lucille's is a yummy little cajun breakfast eatery in the same area, with Tortuga's and the Sugarbeet down the street for evening dining.
There is a DZ at the Longmont airport, if you want to jump out of an airplane. Between Longmont and Boulder is Niwot. There is a great restaurant called Colterra in Niwot.
Boulder has a little of everything. From the patchouli ridden hippie tea house, to brew pubs, to Pearl Street, to the Flagstaff House for fine dining. Being a college town, it also has all the usual carp, and the North Boulder Center for the Performing Arts. But, you have to be a local to figure that one out.
North of Loveland is Fort Collins, also a college town and home of the New Belgium Brewing Co. The Cache la Poudre River runs through Ft. Collins and is also a nice trout stream. A quick jaunt up to Cheyenne will find you at the Sierra Trading Post.
Welcome to Loveland, Surfing Glock Talk and Porn is pretty much what you do there.
We visited the garden if the gods the lastttime we went. We are at the embassy suites that are near the. Big shoppings center. We are in fort Collins right now.... where is a good Mexican resturaunt? Now make sure u don't speed there are troopers everywhere!!!!
