Welcome to Downtown Fort Collins - Best of the New West

Downtown Fort Collins offers a chance to share time with family like strolling the historic streets laughing and spending time with each other.  These times seem to be rare and so special.  The global community is more in touch everyday, but remain isolated in much of their day to day activities.  And so we take advantage of each opportunity we have to commingle with our fellow human beings.  Telling your friend your deepest dreams over coffee or sharing juicy gossip at huge dinner is that precious human interaction we crave.   Downtown's restaurant patios, live performance venues, window shopping, Old Town Square and Oak Street Plaza, the grassy lawns in Library Park or other wonderfully botanic public spaces provide the setting for residents and visitors to simply spend time together.
