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 Lily Lake Trailhead. Venture out of the city with trips to Rocky Mountain National Park (Chasm Falls, Ouzel Falls, &more). Next up on the itinerary: take in nature's colorful creations at Annual Flower Trial Garden, identify plant and animal life at Pineridge Natural Area, hike along Reservoir Ridge Natural Area, and sample the tasty concoctions at New Belgium Brewing Company.
