47. Swim, Bike, and Run in a Triathalon

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to watch the Fort Collins Triathlon and Duathlon. Don’t worry, if you’re reading this after the fact, there’s a long list of similar events throughout the year in Fort Collins and Colorado. The Fort Collins Tri consisted of a 1/4 mile swim at Epic Pool, a 13 mile [...]

42. See a Show at the Aggie Theatre

We’ll kick off the live music venue category with the Aggie Theatre. Though most would consider its 650 person occupancy limit to be a pretty intimate, it’s our 2nd largest indoor live music venue. Only the Lincoln Center’s Performance Hall is bigger. As with most turn of the century Old Town buildings, the Aggie has an interesting history. Built in 1906, [...]

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.

Ten Thousand Villages in Old Town Square is the perfect [...]

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, [...]

21. Wine Fest

Fort Collins may be known for its beer, but we are also home to one of the largest and best-received wine tasting events in Colorado. This year will mark the 28th year of wine tasting festivities. This is a great event for both the wine aficionado and the novice alike. If you have any interest [...]

18. Explore Riverbend Ponds

Can you believe there are over 40 seperate natural areas in Fort Collins covering 33,000 acres?  One of my favorites is Riverbend Ponds.  This gorgeous, 226 acre natural area has 7 ponds and also follows a nice stretch of the Poudre river.  Over 3 miles of  gravel trails wind through cottonwoods and cattails and are nice and flat if you’re [...]
