Fort Collins offers a unique blend
of natural beauty and cultural and recreation opportunities. This
large college town (home to Colorado State University), is nestled
against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and alongside the
banks of the Cache La Poudre River.
Being home to several breweries,
including Anheuser-Busch, visitors to Fort Collins are encouraged
to tour the facilities, sample the goods, and see the world-famous
Nearby attractions include the
Roosevelt National Forest and Rocky Mountain National Park. This
northern Colorado city is an outdoors-oriented community, with the
nearby national park, Lory Park and Horsetooth State Park (and
Horsetooth Reservoir), where you can do everything from boating
and swimming to horseback riding, camping, fishing, mountain
biking and rock climbing.
One of Fort Collins quirkier
attractions is the Swetsville Zoo. No, you won't find live animals
here, but you can walk through a wonderland of mechanical critters
created by a retired farmer with an imaginative flare. It's free
and fun for all ages.
