Fort Collins Named One of the Top 11 Cities For Starting Over
Have you ever had one of those days, or maybe even a week or a month, where you thought “man, I should just quit my job and move somewhere completely new?” I am sure we all have, but it turns out, if you live in Northern Colorado packing up and leaving may not be such a good idea.
That is because there aren’t too many places that are better for starting over fresh than Fort Collins.
Cities Journal recently put together a list of the “Top 11 Cities For Starting Over.” This is a different sort of list though. The intro to the list explains that cities for starting over won’t be the same for everyone, so instead of just naming best to worst, they came up with 11 great places, and organized them from the smallest town to the largest city.
Fort Collins obviously made the list of 11, and is one of the smaller towns to make the list, coming in at number nine. The only smaller towns on the list are Harlingen, TX, and Greenwich, CT. The eight cities that are bigger are Omaha, NE, Portland, OR, Seattle, WA, Boston, MA, Fort Worth, TX, San Francisco, CA, Houston, TX, and Chicago, IL.
Why did Fort Collins make the list? Well, this is the explanation:
According to CNN Money Magazine, Fort Collins is a top place to live for young adults. Median age is 29 years old, there are bike lanes everywhere, and a bicycle library where you can check out a bike for a week for free. The Old Town district contains four micro breweries and over 24 restaurants. Colorado State University is in the middle of town and employment opportunities are good.
