Fort Collins

— 7 nights
Called vibrant, eclectic and authentic, Fort Collins tops “best of” lists year after year thanks to its myriad of cultural opportunities.
Your day by day itinerary now includes McClellan's Brewing Company, Social and Holiday Twin Drive-In Theater. Get some historical perspective at Chapel on the Rock and Holzwarth Historic Site. Discover out-of-the-way places like Adams Falls Trail and Ouzel Falls. Venture out of the city with trips to Rocky Mountain National Park (Chasm Falls & Lily Lake Trailhead) and Shambhala Mountain Center (in Red Feather Lakes). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Coyote Ridge Natural Area, hike along Reservoir Ridge Natural Area, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Odell Brewing Company, and admire the natural beauty at Annual Flower Trial Garden.
