It is no mistake that Fort Collins is fondly referred to as “Fort Fun.” A host of arts and entertainment choices, including Old Town Gallery Tours, outdoor concerts, a busy performing arts schedule and annual community events such as the Brewers Fest and New West Fest make Fort Collins ideal for performers and artists as well as those that partake in the local arts.
Recreation excitement is endless in Fort Collins. Opportunities include, but are not limited to, whitewater river rafting on the Cache la Poudre River, hiking, climbing or biking in the Rocky Mountain National Park or a leisure stroll along one of the many trails embedded within Fort Collins.
Residents and visitors also enjoy the atmosphere of Old Town Fort Collins, which was recently renovated to restore buildings and foster greater enjoyment of the area. An array of restaurants, pubs, breweries and cafes scatter the streets in Old Town. While locally owned stores and boutiques offer a unique shopping experience. The atmosphere in Old Town Fort Collins inspired Disneyland’s Main Street USA. In fact, Disney’s City Hall, bank and other buildings are near replicas of the structures found in downtown Fort Collins.
It is no wonder why residents, visitors and journalists have called Fort Collins the “Choice City” for decades. The Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce hopes you enjoy Fort Collins (www.fortcollinschamber.com).
