About Fort Collins

Although Fort Collins is situated within rugged mountains, you should also expect a lively and buzzing atmosphere due to the fact that the county is home to Colorado State University and is, therefore, largely student-focused; not unlike the usual college town. There's always something going on and plenty to keep occupied with, including great bars, restaurants and festivals.

Known as the cultural capital of Colorado, Fort Collins is all about the arts, whether stage shows, galleries or museums, you're sure to capture the creative side of the place.

What to do

For the historic aspect of the destination, you'll definitely want to make a trip downtown to see the wide array of bookstores, galleries and museums and performance venues on offer, many of which are ideal for all of the family.

There are a large amount of tours within the area, too, if you wish to explore a particular factor of Fort Collins. These include brewery tours, bike tours and even ghost tours – the latter of which wouldn't be recommended for the faint-hearted!

The historic old town is also perfect for shopping; whether you intend to purchase the latest trends or perhaps go antique spotting, there's an endless amount of stores to browse through. Vintage fashion is a popular fashion trend within the area, so expect to find some unique and quirky stores to suit individual styles.

There's also an outdoorsy-vibe within the city as the nearby national park offers kayaking, horseback riding, swimming and rock-climbing opportunities.

Top Fort Collins travel tips

It's extremely easy to get around the city by public transport. Transfort (we love the pun!) is the local bus company which operates around 12 routes so you'll always find a way to reach your desired destination.

However, if you'd prefer to hire a cab, the Northern Colorado Yellow cab can be booked 24 hours a day.

If you'd prefer to stay active, biking is also another popular way of getting around the city, especially for the locals. There are designated bike lanes which makes this form of transport extremely safe.
