What Bert Has To Say About Fort Collins Metro Area


Fort Collins is an agricultural and high-tech center and college town at the northern end of Colorado’s Front Range. Colorado State University, a diversified university with an agricultural base, provides some amenities, a nice campus and ethnic diversity, but overall the town is more conservative than nearby Boulder. The downtown is a model college town with well-kept Victorian-era structures, a lively entertainment scene and plenty to do.
