Why You Should Move to Fort Collins: Part II

In our last blog post, we discussed four reasons why you should consider making Fort Collins, our idyllic city in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, your home. As the heart of Northern Colorado, Fort Collins boasts an active art and music scene, top research university, abundance of craft breweries, and access to the great outdoors. In this blog post, we share even more reasons why our up-and-coming city is the perfect place to lay down some roots.

Great Family Town

If you have young children or are considering starting a family there’s no better place to settle down than Fort Collins. Our charming city of 160,000 people is full of green spaces and hiking trails that will allow you to raise an environmentally conscious child at no cost to you. Furthermore, the City of Fort Collins offers a wealth of affordable, family-friendly activities to educate and entertain your little ones. Just a few of the recreacreation programs that the city offers include aquatics, arts and crafts, day camps, early learning, education, ice skating, and so much more!

Fort Collins also has many recreation and environmental learning centers, such as the Edora Pool Ice Center (EPIC), the region’s premier ice and aquatics facility, and the newly opened The Gardens on Spring Creek, a community botanic garden featuring a butterfly house, outdoor education courses, and one of the largest outdoor collections of winter hardy cacti in the country. A particularly special site for young children is The Farm at Lee Martinez Park, which provides hands-on family fun in the form of interaction with animals. 

Great Town for Older Adults

Fort Collins is quickly becoming one of the country’s top destinations for retired adults. In fact, one in five Larimer County residents are 65 years or older, and it’s no wonder why. Fort Collins is a great place for active adults who love to hike, bike, and spend time in nature. Its active art and music scene also make it a lively place to visit galleries, attend concerts, and meet like-minded friends. The City of Fort Collins also offers a variety of 50+ activities, such as classes on everything from pottery to pilates, guided hikes, group outings, and more. 

Close to Denver

Fort Collins is a mid-sized city, meaning that it has most of the amenities of a big city but at a fraction of the cost. That being said, former city dwellers may still long for a big, bright downtown. Don’t worry! Denver, the capital and most populous city of Colorado, is just over an hour away by car. With more than 700,000 residents, a wealth of world-famous art museums, and an abundance of green spaces, Denver is known as one of the most exciting cities to live in in the world. Stop by the Denver Center for the Performing Arts to watch a touring Broadway show or view a must-see exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. No matter what you’re looking for, the Mile High City will not disappoint.
