Beverages
This business started from a small coffee cart serving pour overs and quickly grew. Join one of their "cuppings" to learn more about fine roasted coffee. The espresso is really tasty for those who actually like complexity in their coffee. They have a rotation of single-origin coffee that is brewed via pour over and house-made Chai using spices from a local shop.

Night Life
This is probably one of the most iconic restaurant/bar/music venues in Fort Collins. Feel your hippie vibe while you eat with large indoor murals and macramé, then jam away with live bluegrass, country, jazz, rock, acoustic guitarists/singers, or even opera. They have a ton of music and event happenings on either their indoor or outdoor stage and their menu offers vegetarian and gluten-free options!

This place is more than a movie theater. This is a funky social joint where there's a lot going on and the beers flow on tap. Indoor and outdoor seating with a variety of amusements to entertain you before a flick. Enjoy movies here like you would at home: on a couch with spirits or beer - except you can watch it on the big screen. Independent films, outdoor movie classics, bad movie night, and weekend cartoons!

Enjoy a ride on a historic trolley ride when you visit MAY - SEPTEMBER on weekends and holidays. You can get on at City Park or Howes Street (downtown) along Mountian Ave. It takes about 1/2 hour and it's a great way to get to Old Town Ft. Collins on a little piece of living history. Fares are cheap (kids under 3 are free), but bring cash!

Parks & Nature
What's great about this park is that it's close to town but you feel far away from it, which makes it a convenient. There are 26 miles of trails good for hiking, biking, running and horseback. Arthur's Rock is a nice 3.4 mile out & back trail - a moderate workout with views of Ft. Collins and Horsetooth Reservoir. Dogs on leash are allowed!
