Fort Collins, Colorado
Fort Collins is a Mile High university town without Boulder’s ’tude, and it’s one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. But it doesn’t have a city feel—there’s out-the-door access to fishing, rafting, backcountry skiing, and hiking in nearby Poudre Canyon, and it’s within a hop of Rocky Mountain National Park. The brand-new Fort Collins Museum of Discovery has a 42-foot-long plesiosaur and an immersive exhibit that lets you create and play music. And these days, 70 percent of Colorado’s craft beer comes from the Fort. So you’re bound to find a local brew that suits your taste buds.
