I recently took a trip to Greeley, Colorado for our Independence Day celebration. Although the city where the festivities were held were not one of the best areas it was a great city. The parade is nice long parade. The carnival is held in the park that they have every year. They also have a lot to do during that time. The park near the parade is very nice and kept clean. It has lots of activities as well. The location was not in the not so good part of Greeley so that could make anybody nervous about even visiting the city. Overall, Greeley did feel like a fairly safe city.

The Western part of the city of Greeley was more of a nicer area and had a nicer appeal. The mall is very nice and is in a lovely area. The mall itself is not very big but the city itself is not very big. It does have a movie theater and other attractions that you'd consider standard in every mid sized city. However, if you are looking for that big city feel, Denver is located not very far from Greeley. In fact, on a good traffic day, you could reach the city of Denver in just over an hour.
