45. Grab a Massive Slice of Pie at Uncle’s Pizzeria

The first thing you’ll notice when you walk into Uncle’s Pizzeria is the open kitchen and giant oven sitting right in front of you that gives you the ability to see how a great pie is made right before your eyes. If you’ve never eaten one of their massive (1/4 pie) slices of an 18″ [...]

43. Grab a Red Tea Latte at Happy Lucky’s Teahouse

Relaxing, sensory, cultural, enriching, and welcoming are just a few of the words I can think of to describe Happy Lucky’s Teahouse and Treasures. The combination of Cambodian handicrafts, appeasing music, and a unique selection of teas from all over the world provide a wonderful respite to study or chat with a friend. After spending [...]

40. CSU Undie Run

Within minutes of 11pm, hundreds of students began congregating outside the Lory Student Center like a flash flood overwhelming a dry desert. All arriving fully clad, unrecognizable from any other student you’d see on the street. This student mob  rapidly grew bigger, the chants of “I’m proud to be a CSU Ram” got louder, and [...]

39. Bouldering at Rotary Park

Horsetooth Reservoir offers some great opportunities to boulder for both beginners and experts. Rotary Park is one of the more popular and easily accessible areas filled with traverses, technical slabs, and overhanging roofs.

35. Lace-up your quads at Rollerland

Grab your girlfriend, round up the kids, or get a large group of friends together and wander over to Rollerland Skating Center for some good old roller-skating fun.  If you’re feeling especially “fly” don  a little 80′s flair. Until tonight I hadn’t worn a pair of “quads” (rollerskates) for at least 10 years, maybe longer.  [...]

33. A & J Antique Mall

Visiting the A&J Antique Mall is like going to a museum where everything is for sale. It’s a 13,000 square foot maze of collectibles, vintage finds, and unique embellishments. If you’re the type of person who loves perusing garage sales, thrift stores, or eclectic shops you need to add A&Js to your list of things [...]

31. Kites in the Park

There’s just something I love about the simplicity of flying a kite that still enthralls me.  Although I haven’t flown a kite in quite a long time, I thoroughly enjoyed stopping by Spring Canyon Park.  Kite’s in the Park is an annual festival put on by the City of Fort Collins. It is a perfect, [...]

It’s part of the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center right next to the downtown Poudre River Public Library.  You’ve seen it if you’ve ever noticed the white tepee out of the corner of your eye on Mathews St. [...]
