Fort Collins is not just a fast growing community, it is widely considered among the best places to live in the entire country. It isn’t just the residents saying it. Sources from Forbes magazine to Men’s Journal to Money magazine have named Fort Collins in the very upper echelon of places to live over the last few years with Money magazine naming it the single best small city to live in the the United States.
Fort Collins boasts low crime, great jobs in a high tech economy, among the best schools in the state, and outdoor adventures of every variety. The city is flush with amazing food, great shopping is the country’s epicenter of the craft brewery phenomenon. It is the home of Colorado State University, a great school with possible the best agriculture business programs in the county. It is also a cultural hub of Colorado with music, art and theater taking center stage in the community. It truly holds something for everyone.
All of this helps explain why everything from property values to quality of life remains high, year after year in the “Choice City.”
For all intents and purposes Loveland and Fort Collins are the same metropolitan area save a few key reasons. Smaller than Fort Collins, Loveland has maintained a small town feel all while growing as a commercial hub and its desirability. Loveland has added to its shopping areas with the Promenade Shops at Centerra and the Outlets at Loveland. It has built a state of the art medical facility in the Medical Center of the Rockies that rivals anything in the state. The Budweiser Event Center has outdone even the most optimistic estimates for its viability and draw.
The Loveland community has benefited from a thought out decades ling growth plan and is just now reaping its rewards. The Loveland housing market and the property value growth are both among the best in the state. It’s no wonder why Loveland is called the sweetheart city. It is simply a paradise at the base of the Rockies and may not remain a hidden gem for long.
Greeley was originally settled as the vision of a wester utopia and it has continued to live up to that expectation. Sitting an hour North of Denver, Greeley is primarily an agri-economy and Weld County consistently ranks in the top 10 of the agriculture producing counties in the country.
Over the last decade, in addition to agri-business, Greeley has seen a great influx of technical industry as well. Greeley is also home to the University of Northern Colorado which is among the counties best schools in terms of teacher education and nursing.
It’s easy to see, when considering a western utopia, why Greeley should be at the top of the list.
Windsor is a fast growing town and community situated in the center in Northern Colorado. Among Colorado’s fastest growing cities, Windsor offers easy access to Fort Collins, Denver, the mountains and the plains.
Windsor is growing rapidly but has seen resources continually set aside to develop top tier schools, shopping, hospitals and businesses are fast finding Windsor a great place to call home. The town has managed to see this substantial growth while maintaining its small town charm and offers an abundance of recreational activities, shopping and dining. Windsor simply offers the best of all worlds, insuring opportunities for families, businesses and a high quality of life.
