I travel through the city of Fort Collins, CO pretty regularly, at least once a year and more often 2-3 times, and usually stop and visit my sister-in-law when I'm there. Fort Collins is a really beautiful city which surprisingly doesn't get as much snow in the winter as you might think, and it's not too hot in the summer, either.
In Ft. Collins, I generally stay at the Plaza Inn which has a pool, sauna, jacuzzi, and meeting rooms. The rooms are spacious and clean but a little outdated. The first time I stayed there, the pool was indoor and outdoor, you could actually swim through a hole in the wall to get to the other side.
The city is easy to get around in. Roads are clearly marked and traffic is light. This really helps allow the quaint beauty of the town shine.
I love to shop at Square Shopping Center! No matter what you are looking for, they have it! The best breakfast burritos I ever ate were at the shopping plaza. Even had my breakfast outdoors in the sun, nothing's better than a bacon, egg, cheese and potato burrito and a cup of coffee before starting the next leg of my journey. Kudos to Fort Collins!
