Fort Collins has always been a spot that has always peaked my interest. Up until moving here to Northern Colorado, I only knew of it through my brief encounters when visiting friends in Denver over the years but I just remember seeing it consistently in the top places to live in the country and always wondered what made this place so special.

Well, after moving here and spending lots of time in Fort Collins, it's easy to see what makes this little city so special. There are many things that I enjoy about it from the easy access to the mountains and everything outdoors to a thriving downtown scene that is so hyper focused on local shops and restaurants to the friendly hometown vibe I get from walking down the streets...Fort Collins is a gem.

Fort Collins is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States and it has one of the most stable housing markets, too. Throw in a world class university that sits right in the heart of the city and you've got yourself a sweet little corner of the world.

Is it perfect? No...but no place is but coming from lots of different areas of the country, I can assure you that Fort Collins is one of my favorite places I've ever been to and feel fortunate to be able to call it home.
