Berthoud Day : Wishful Living

Downtown Berthoud, Colorado : Wishful Living BlogWelcome to Berthoud, the Garden Spot of Colorado! There are over 300 days of sun annually and the town is home to just over 5,000 people. The town of Berthoud sits conveniently between Denver and Ft. Collins in Northern Colorado, 4 miles west of I-25 on Highway 56. The town has been in its current location for more than 125 years. It was originally built on the Little Thompson River and railroad route. However, after the rail company complained of the difficulties of the locomotives to climb out of the riverbed, the tracks and town were moved approximately 1 mile north from the river and this is where Berthoud currently sits today.

Berthoud is a quaint small town with wide tree lined streets, and dozens of original Victorian homes up and down the many blocks that make up the downtown. Berthoud has several parks, a public swimming pool, and a local farmers market during the summer. Berthoud Day, the first Saturday in June, kicks off the summer with a parade down main street, as well as activities and events all day throughout the town for young and old alike. Community events take place during the year and are a big draw for the whole town to participate in and enjoy.

Berthoud boasts some of the best small town shopping to be had. Fun, original shops with something for everyone. Wishful Living, an eclectic selection of merchandise from all over the world. Simply Shabulous, a antique store with a Shabby Chic flare. Indigo Sky carries local artisan made items and antiques. Berthoud has a quilt shop, an antique and imported rug shop, a clothing boutique, and much more. When you are tired from shopping, you can stop in at the award winning City Star Brewing for a pint of their gold medal micro brews. How about a frosty mug of A&W Root Beer at the local drive up? Berthoud is also home to a world class day spa, Brookside Gardens, offering a full menu of spa and salon services. At the end of a fun and relaxing day you can stay at the Berthoud Inn, the local bed and breakfast. The rooms are all unique, comfortable, and the breakfast consistently get rave reviews by their guests. Did we mention food? How about Nonna Bella for Italian? Titos or Mi Cocina for Mexican? Brick Oven is an excellent small pizzeria, and the Whistle Stop, Derby Grille, and Grandpa's Cafe offer great all-American food choices. Come, relax and spend the day in Berthoud with friendly, small town hospitality, you will be glad you did.
