I was fortunate enough to be able to attend this year’s Western Writers of America (WWA) in Loveland, Colorado. It was my first time in The Centennial State, but it certainly won’t be my last. Loveland is a growing new place about an hour north of Denver, located just south of the better-known Fort Collins area. Along with an abundance of traffic circles at nearly every intersection, new construction of all kinds is everywhere. Malls featuring all of the top stores can be found within only a few miles of any given direction. There are also a wide variety of great restaurants offering every type of cuisine throughout the area. I’d encourage visitors to not only visit the downtown historic district but the outlying areas as well. You won’t be disappointed.
