Fort Collins doesn't have a military fort anymore, but that doesn't mean this town has forgotten its rich history. The city sits just beyond the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and at the start of the Great Plains. While enjoying the great outdoors is a common activity among visitors, Fort Collins is better known for something else: beer and bikes. Fort Collins is one of the most bike-friendly communities in the United States. Additionally, this town is the well-accepted beer capitol of Colorado, and more than eight breweries call this city home.
Old Town Fort Collins is considered the place to be. In fact, this section of the city was an inspiration point for Main Street USA in Disneyland. Most visitors arrive in Colorado through Denver International Airport (DIA). From there, it's just a short drive up the I-25 with a rented vehicle or airport shuttle. Most people in town use a bicycle to get around, but it's also easy to transverse the entirety of Old Town on foot.
Fort Collins is known for mild summers, and winter temperatures can fall down to the upper teens. The calendar in Fort Collins circulates around Tour de Fat; this beer and bike festival takes place every year in late summer.
