There are some really pretty places in Fort Collins. There are not too many places to get up high and see some distance. We do enjoy two free options for this though, the observation deck at the Fort Collins Museum and Discovery (you don't have to pay to go up on the deck) and this amazing pedestrian bridge, behind Whole Foods Market. My kids love running up, across, down and back up, across and down. This is a super energy burner and really fun to see the new CSU stadium, Horsetooth rock, the Mason Trail, MAX and so many other beautiful parts of Fort Collins. Just park behind to the north of Whole Foods, bike or take the MAX to find this treasure.
