For those of us that live here, we're not surprised that the LA Times Travel section has called Fort Collins the 'Happiest Place on Earth'.

Fort Collins is anything but bland, offering culture and university town sophistication in the Rockies.

Fort Collins is an hour's drive from the Denver airport, but once there, ditch the car and rent bikes to get around. Go to Fort Collins Bike Library to learn more.
