Home to Colorado State University, Fort Collins is a well-known Colorado city. Located right next to the Rocky Mountains and the Cache La Poudre River, it is also a place of great natural beauty. With a population of just over 100,000 people, it is one of the larger cities in the state. There are 18 bus routes in Fort Collins and 200 miles of trails for both pedestrians and bicyclists to use. There are also three golf courses, 600 acres of parks, an ice rink and a community center.
Since it is a college town, there are plenty of apartments in Fort Collins, and those who enjoy the amenities of a bigger city will appreciate all that this area has to offer. Apartment rentals in Fort Collins are not the only option of course; there are plenty of other choices as well. People who want to own their own home can find a host of good places as well.
Those who enjoy the amenities of the city but prefer to be located outside the college-town atmosphere may want to consider homes or apartments in Loveland, which is just to the south of Fort Collins. At a population of just over 60,000 people, it is a little bit smaller than its college-town neighbor. A mere eight miles from Fort Collins, this unique town has a public art collection that totals over 200 pieces. The "Fox Trot" bus connects the two cities, so getting back and forth is easy.
