Fort Collins Real Estate
Fort Collins is a great place to live, work and play! Fort Collins is nestled against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and alongside the banks of the Cache La Poudre River. Money Magazine said so in 2006 when Fort Collins hit the “Best” list at #1 in 2006, they came back and puts us on the list again in 2008.
Per the article: “One of the first things you notice about this Rocky Mountain city is that practically every new road has a bike lane,” the magazine wrote in its summary of Fort Collins. “Even the bikeless can get in on the action now that Fort Collins has a bike library: Residents and visitors can check out a bicycle for up to seven days, free.”
Other highlights cited by Money: the presence of microbreweries and restaurants in Old Town, the heavy presence of bioscience and tech companies and the recent awarding of a Department of Energy grant to build a zero energy district in the downtown area.
Those of us that have ‘transplanted’ here have known all along what the rest of the world is just finding out, that we live in a great town! With the views, the access to the outdoors and the local metropolis that is so close, we have everything we want within our reach. In my down time, I gravitate to the water. There is no better place to live with all the recreational activities available, it’s either grab your fishing poles or skis.
The city lies approximately 5,000 feet above sea level.
Residents enjoy a moderate, four season climate with an average of 300 days of sunshine and 14.5 inches of precipitation a year.
