Loveland rests north along the Front Range near Fort Collins, approximately 45 minutes North of Denver. Colorado's Sweetheart City has become famous for its Valentine's Day love stamp program, but its bronze foundries, numerous galleries and local art program are equally impressive.
Each August, during Sculpture in the Park, Loveland's large community of local sculptors (about 200) converges in Benson Sculpture Garden to sell their work. A month later the town hosts the nation's largest exhibit of prehistoric arrowheads at the Stone Age Fair. A step inside the Loveland Museum/Gallery will bring you close to this town's history; period rooms and changing exhibits, plus educational classes and an art gallery round out its offerings.
There's plenty to do outside here. Loveland is near the foothills and rivers, so natural pleasures from biking, hiking, horseback riding and fishing are close at hand. The Lake Loveland Swim Beach is popular with families during the summer months and Devil's Backbone Open Space opens the door to wildlife watching, 12 miles of trails and the keyhole — a unique arch within the backbone that you can hike right through.
