Fort Collins Named One of the Best College Towns in America


We have gotten used to Fort Collins being recognized nationally for the great things we have/do, and yet again our own little piece of Northern Colorado has been named to a national list. This time for being a great college town. 

Best College Reviews took the time to rank college towns across the country based on livability, student-to-resident ratio, cultural offerings, school presence, and large employers before, during, and after school.

Our neighbors in Boulder took the top spot on the list, but Northern Colorado was well represented as well with Fort Collins coming in at number 14.

The site had this to say about our town:

Fort Collins is home to Colorado State University and on Money magazine’s Best Place to Live in the US list since 2006. A great homegrown music and microbrewery scene complement the town’s collegiate vibes, with one of it’s most attended events hosted by New Belgium Brewery; “Tour de Fat” as the event is called, draws over 20,000 people riding bikes and dressing in costume.

As part of the Front Range Corridor, Fort Collins is close to other destination locations such as Boulder and Denver. Within sight of the Front Range, there are limitless outdoor opportunities as well as skiing in the winter.

No other Colorado towns made the list. See the full top 50 here.
