This college town’s historic old town and downtown area are the hub for shopping, dining and entertainment. The Lincoln Center hosts touring Broadway productions and smaller shows geared toward families. And the Poudre School District’s 32 elementary, middle and high schools are widely regarded as some of the best in the country.

The city’s craft brewing scene began in the late 1990s, with the opening of Fort Collins Brewery and Funkwerks. Today, the city is home to over a dozen craft breweries and brewpubs.

In the outdoors, explore the Rocky Mountains at Coyote Ridge Natural Area or the flora-filled trails at Pine Ridge Natural Area. The city’s botanical gardens are another scenic draw. Or, get your blood pumping with a hike at the Poudre Canyon.

Diners can savor dishes made with locally-sourced ingredients at Bistro Nautile. The menu of French-inspired fare has ranged from bison tongue to crickets, and a glass of wine is always a good choice. The restaurant also offers a sommelier-led tasting.

The Regional is another Fort Collins favorite for farm-to-table food. The restaurant serves both brunch and linner (lunch + dinner), with dishes like watermelon feta salad, goat cheese Caprese, zucchini noodles and the classic fried chicken sandwich.
