Welcome to Fort Collins

Just outside of town, you'll find mountain adventures in the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, Lory State Park and along the Cache la Poudre River.

People often compare Fort Collins with Colorado's other favorite college town, Boulder. This former farming community doesn't have all the glitz of Boulder, but it's probably got more heart and soul…and that's just about right.
