In the Garden of Eads

Driving up the narrow, curving gravel drive of Dale Eads’s property, the path bends to reveal a fully renovated 1870s house embraced by a lush landscape. The home, on a hill just east of historic downtown Loveland, is a striking Victorian with a wide front porch and climbing ivy. Unique architectural features like original sandstone gate pillars (found buried on the…

Summer Lovin’

 Treasure Hunters by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein  Of course, there’s hidden treasure. And ruthless pirates. A high-seas adventure-mystery perfect for the 9- to 12-year-old (good for the grown-up kid, too). There are also double agents. Rival spies. Kidnapped parents! Plus two twins (and their annoying older sibs) who tell the tale and lead the chase to find their missing mom and dad.…

Soaking Up the Summer

I love Loveland in the summer. This town comes alive with the warm weather and rays of sunshine. Biking, hiking, canoeing, swimming holes, festivals, concerts, dining alfresco, fireworks—the list goes on and on. Loveland is in its prime in the summertime, and there are so many new things to be excited about this season.

Bites, Brews and Views

With the river, the bike trail and the ample green space, summer in downtown Loveland is just begging to be enjoyed outside. Drop by any day or night of the week, and you’ll find people of all ages walking, biking or running, eating, drinking and socializing. And sometimes all of the above, in no particular order.

Road Trip

If there’s one thing the Holman brothers know, it’s trucks—the best for hauling boats or campers, the right SUV for Winnebagos or winning teams. Still a family-run business, Eric and Greg Holman have carried on their parents’ dealership tradition (a 1945 legacy born down the road from their current 50 acres in Eastgate).

Fifth Annual Danny O’Keefe Fundraiser at Power Ryde
