We've teamed up with travel blogger and influencer HeidiTown to take you on a fun (and dog-friendly!) road trip in southern Colorado. Learn about Pueblo — where the air is scented with the smell of roasting green chiles, the farmers' markets are filled with the bounty of the season and long-running family restaurants abound.
Then go west to the San Luis Valley and discover a place where the only traffic jams are caused by cattle drives and potatoes are king. Learn how this valley has become a mecca for craft beer and outdoor way of life. Then head to Salida, one of the most dog-friendly towns in Colorado with a stellar dog park and dog boutique.
You can even stay in a dog-friendly Airstream while in town. For more a more detailed version of the drive, follow along with Heidi and her four-legged pal Fritzi, starting in Pueblo.
