Start your vacation in the city nestled between the mountains and reality
Actively experience why Boulder

Join the Eagle and the Hawk
, in the words immortalized by the legendary John Denver who was named Poet Laureate of the state in 1974: Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops. Sail over the canyons and up to the stars. And reach for the heavens and hope for the future, and all that we can be and not what we are.
Participate in a catch-and-release tour and discover your soon to be most-loved fishing spot
. There are hiking trails
and historic walking tours
. Fort Collins extends diverse cultural attractions and a vibrant nightlife to you. From June to October, hear live music and take a free horse-drawn carriage ride through Historic Golden at the Golden Farmers Market
. Pick up the ingredients for tonight’s dinner, prepared in the kitchen of your vacation rental accommodations: fresh veggies for home-made soup accompanied by freshly-baked bread. Add a bottle of locally-made wine and you are ready for an enjoyable meal shared with friends. Take in an art show at Greeley on another day.
