Without hyperbole, we can truthfully say that the Fort Collins-Loveland area will be one of the most beautiful places you will live in your entire life.
With the Rocky Mountains at your doorstep, and the wilderness of Wyoming just a short drive away, it will also be one of the wildest. Your weekends will be filled with endless outdoor adventures.
Rocky Mountain National Park is only a half-hour's drive away, soaring to more than 13,000 feet above sea level. If you've always lived on the coast, it might take you a while to get used to such altitudes. But don't worry. Soon even the tallest peak in the park-- Longs Peak, at 14,255 feet-- won't phase you. Go hiking, mountain biking, or mountain climbing (or all of the above, just not at the same time!) in this park. First you might want to drive the famous Trail Ridge Road, the highest highway in the U.S., to get a sense of the grandeur of the park as a whole. It's impossible to describe all the sights you'll see. The only advice we have to offer is: take a lot of pictures!
Another, often overlooked, natural area in Fort Collins is Poudre Canyon, carved by the Cache la Poudre River. Sports like whitewater rafting, kayaking, and fishing reach their most intense level here, but in the winter you can also pursue cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
While you may think that the mountains are all there is to this city, Money magazine named this town one of the top 100 "Best Places to Live" in the US. There are plenty of other factors that make it attractive to home buyers: a good economy based on a steady stream of well-educated graduates from local Colorado State University, and Old Town Fort Collins, a quintessential American Main Street.
Old Town Fort Collins is a fun meeting place for new neighbors or old friends. With lots of local microbreweries, such as CooperSmith's Pub, pizza joints, like Beau Jo's Pizza, which received accolades from Travelocity and Colorado Style, and small, unique shops, it's a place where hours will be pleasantly squandered. If you think you're a world-class shopper, wait until you see what's in store for you at Ten Thousand Villages, The Welsh Rabbit Cheese Shop, Old Town Spice Shop, The Cupboard, and other specialty boutique stores.
Do you have kids? If so, it's a good thing there are several kid-friendly venues nearby, like the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery. This museum will grab your kids' attention from their first glimpse of the 42-foot-long dinosaur in the lobby. The Edora Pool and Ice Center lets kids cool off in the summer, and experience the thrill of ice-skating in the winter. Everyone will find something to love at Fort Fun, an indoor amusement park known for epic go-karting and laser tag.
