There are a ton of fun places to spend an afternoon in Northern Colorado. We all have our favorite shops, restaurants, and attractions. Since I live right outside of Fort Collins, I spend a lot of my free time in downtown Fort Collins.

I have friends and family who live across the country. Whenever they stay at my home the first place I take them to Old Town Square. Forget about Denver. Old Town is a better place to hang out.

Hanging out in Old Town is no longer a personal preference for me, and many Northern Coloradans, there is now evidence that the gem of Fort Collins is one of the best places to be in the entire country.
