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 Shambhala Mountain Center. Discover out-of-the-way places like Odell Brewing Company and Annual Flower Trial Garden. Venture out of the city with trips to Rocky Mountain National Park (Chasm Falls, Ouzel Falls, &more). There's much more to do: hike along Cathy Fromme Prairie Natural Area, indulge your thirst for a good beer at New Belgium Brewing Company, look for all kinds of wild species at Pineridge Natural Area, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Reservoir Ridge Natural Area.
