About Fort Collins

Situated at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, 60 miles north of Denver International airport, Fort Collins is home to fabulous recreational opportunities, diverse cultural attractions, a vibrant nightlife scene and family fun. Experience world-class whitewater rafting on the nationally designated “Wild and Scenic” Cache La Poudre River (the best whitewater rafting near Rocky Mountain National Park). Taste award-winning beers at one of 20 (and counting) local breweries. Or, explore the fanciful creatures at the Swetsville Zoo with your family. Fort Collins prides itself on the plethora of restaurants and outdoor activities, a picturesque downtown and of course, our beer. Fort Collins is always full of things to do, no matter the season.

Fort Collins richly deserves its reputation as the cultural capital of Northern Colorado. With a half-dozen live-theater stages in production throughout the year; a symphony orchestra, ballet troupe, and opera company as well as several choral ensembles; facilities that accommodate a wide range of national touring shows and concerts; galleries and museums mounting exhibits of everything from animation art to historical kimonos, there’s always something interesting going on.

Old Town is full of shops and galleries featuring the work of local artists, craftsmen and photographers. Stroll around and meet them during a First Friday Art Walk
