Welcome to the City of Loveland!

Welcome to Loveland, the heart of beautiful Northern Colorado. I was first drawn to Loveland because of its love affair with the arts; the depth and scope of which I hadn’t seen elsewhere. If you have a passion for bronze work, we are the sculpture capital of the nation; home of the internationally renowned Sculpture in the Park Art Show, several world class foundries and two amazing sculpture parks covering 36 acres; Benson Sculpture Park and Chapunga Sculpture Park. You will find bronze sculpture everywhere you go; public art can even be spotted on out of the way hiking trails. Murals adorn buildings in our Historic Downtown Creative District. Live theater performances occur year round in our century old, beautifully refurbished Rialto Theater. Free outdoor concerts are available at our Foote Lagoon, our Foundry Plaza and at Centerra. One only has to wander a short distance in any direction to discover awesome public art, unique local shops, tantalizing restaurants and entertainment venues.  

 If you are a sports enthusiast, we are home of the champion Colorado Eagles Hockey Team. If you are interested in craft beers and delicious food, we are home to numerous award winning micro breweries and a large variety of wonderful restaurants. If you are a romantic, you can renew your vows in the nation’s Sweetheart City, home of the 70 year- old Valentine Re-mailing program which annually processes 175,000 Valentine’s cards from over 110 countries and all 50 states.   

If you are thinking of starting or relocating your business, Loveland offers a high quality of life. You owe it to yourself and your employees to give Loveland a serious look.

I hope you will find time to experience some of our great outdoor activities. Not only are we nestled against the North Front Range of the majestic Colorado Rockies, but our city is dotted with beautiful lakes, parks, natural areas and covered with 26 miles of paved trails. Whether your passion is biking, hiking, sailing, fishing, horseback riding or just enjoying nature’s stunning beauty—you will fall in love with Loveland. Everywhere you travel in Loveland, you will encounter friendly businesses and residents who are passionate about maintaining and fostering our history and our local flavor. We are a community of friendly people who care about one another and our lovely City. We look forward to meeting you!
