Fort Collins

Overview

Introduction

Fort Collins, Colorado, was founded in 1864 as a military post on the Cache la Poudre River. Today, it's classified as one of the fastest-growing cities in the country.

Colorado State University, located in Fort Collins, is nationally known for its forestry and veterinary medicine schools.

The Anheuser-Busch brewery is one of the city's leading employers and tourist attractions. Don't miss a tour of the New Belgium Brewery, a uniquely green and responsible company whose Fat Tire Amber Ale is one of the best brews in the state.

The nearby Cache la Poudre Canyon provides great hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and white-water rafting.

Close to Rocky Mountain National Park, A-1 Wildwater Rafting offers family services and good group rates, with a variety of trips on many Colorado Rivers. Experienced river runners offer kayak instruction, too. Phone 970-224-3379. Toll-free 800-369-4165. http://www.a1wildwater.com.
