Deciding where to take a vacation this year? Whether it is cold or warm outside, we would love for you to consider Northern Colorado as your next vacation destination.
Fort Collins is the Northern most city in Colorado and there is so much to see and do such as the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, Horsetooth Falls, and enjoy a delightful meal in Old Town. If you visit Fort Collins during the Christmas Season, it is recommended to take someone you love on a horse and carriage ride for a memorable evening that will be remembered long after the vacation trip ends.
If snowboarding, skiing, and/or riding a snow mobile is more your style – then Northern Colorado during the months of November through March/April is where you want to be. If you do decide to take your RV across this beautiful area, and find yourself in a situation where you need some emergency money, there are RV title loans options available.
Additionally, when you are in Northern Colorado during the cooler months, enjoy some excellent home cooking at the local eaters such as “Nick’s”, “RARE Italian”, and “Jax Fish House”. Then stop by “Kilwins” or “Nuance Chocolate” for an after drink and some dessert.
Stop by the winter farmers market in Northern Colorado because it is a great place to find fresh greens, local mushrooms, root vegetables, and local cheeses. Also, take advantage of the craft culture at the market. Open every Saturday during the winter months and it is located at Opera Galleria 123 N. College Avenue.
After spending a day outside in brisk weather, nothing satisfies the soul like a hot cup of coffee or a unique warm beverage offered by the many coffee shops such as “Mug”, “Bean Cycle”, “Happy Lucky’s Tea House”, and “Little Bird Bakery”.
If biking, hiking, rafting, and exploring parks and other scenic wonders is what you are interested in, then visit Northern Colorado during the months of May through October. Also, if fly fishing is something you enjoy or it is something that you want to try, there are more than 30 species of warm and cold water fish known in Colorado and that may be the “lure” that gets you “hooked” on this special sport.
However, you don’t have to be a sports enthusiast to enjoy Northern Colorado because this the perfect place to visit any time of the year and relax in one of the many hot springs and spas.
The mountains of Colorado offer many activities to get your heart beating a little faster and also for just relaxing and enjoying nature. The Rocky Mountain Nation Park is the home to many wild animals and offers visitors picture perfect scenic views.
In addition to many museums and parks, some main tourist attractions found in Northern Colorado include, but not limited to:
Dinosaur National Monument
Regardless of when you visit – don’t miss the Dinosaur National Monument. This protected dinosaur fossil bed sits on the Utah/Colorado boarder and it is an attraction that should not be missed.
New Belgium Brewing Company
The New Belgium Brewing Company is located at 500 Linden Street in Fort Collins and has been named one of the best 10 toured breweries. This establishment is 100% employee owned and they offer full tap selections including year-round favorites as well as specialty brews. Children are welcome on the tour; however, you must be at least 21 years old to sample the delicious brews.
In addition to being a former farmer and volunteer fireman, Bill Swets was an insomniac. When he was unable to sleep, Mr. Swets created whimsical masterpieces from scrap metal such as a spider created from a VW bug and a metal caricature of Monica Lewinsky. Bill’s creations are definitely a sight to behold.
At the base of Hahns Peak sits a “ghost town” which was, at one time, the terminus of the railroad from Wyoming. The history of this area is fascinating – in fact, it is rumored that Butch Cassidy was jailed here – in a bear cage!
Final word Colorado has been consistently ranked one of the nation’s most active states in America and in turn that means that it is one of the healthiest – so it is no wonder that many people choose Northern Colorado as their next vacation spot and we are sure you will agree.
