We came up with a list of 31 activities that will make you fall in love with Fort Collins because, if we hadn’t applied the brakes, the list would have easily numbered in the hundreds.

One of Colorado’s most stunning outdoor havens, Horsetooth Reservoir is only a short drive from Old Town Fort Collins. Fishing, swimming, boating, stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, water skiing, hiking, and camping are all popular recreation activities at the reservoir. Countless miles of mountain bike, equestrian riding, and hiking trails encircle the reservoir. One of Colorado’s top bouldering locations is on the east side of the reservoir.
