Loveland is a laid-back, family-friendly city that combines exciting museums, parks, historical landmarks, beautiful natural areas, and lots of wineries/breweries. Its relaxed and laid-back vibe makes it a perfect getaway for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in cities like Denver and Boulder.
Hiking is one of the best ways to spend a day in Loveland, and the Devil's Backbone Open Space is an iconic trail. This 2,198-acre park is a popular destination for hiking, biking, and horseback riding as it offers unparalleled views of the Rocky Mountains.
There are 12 miles of trails in the park, with plenty of space to explore on your own or with a group. Drinking water is available on the main trail and outdoor enthusiasts are advised to bring their own reusable bottles for easy refills.
The Benson Park Sculpture Garden is a wonderful place to relax and take in the scenery with your family or friends. It is filled with a variety of sculptures that are made from ceramic, bronze, glass, and stone.
Taking an evening Loveland Ghost Tour is a fun way to explore the mysterious and spooky side of this town. You'll hear all about local ghost sightings, legends, and just plain weird stuff that happens around town no one can explain.
Concerts are a popular attraction at the Foote Lagoon, where bands play live year-round in this open-air venue. Every summer the venue hosts a new lineup of musicians, so you'll always be in for a good time.
