Review of Fort Collins, Colorado

Very Expensive
Star Rating - 4/21/2014
Housing and food are so high in cost here. I have lived here for 20 years and ready to leave. I love the weather, but the cost of living and property taxes are to much. It takes 2 people to work and cant save anything. I am to old for the college town. I go downtown and its so full of young people. I know its a college town . To much drinking and because of the economy, we are seeing more people living with others. I dont understand with all the tourist here, why our taxes are so high. I love the mountains and the weather, but the city has changed alot. If you are into the bars and night life, this town is for you. Wages are low with sky rocket prices. I have owned 4 house here and the taxes keep going up. The food is horrible, not very good restaurants. People are somewhat snobby...and hard to get to know. I hope I am not that way after being here for 20 years. I will leave this place to the young at heart. Its not a bad place to live if you make alot of money. I am sure I will miss it.
