|Linden Hotel, Old Town|
Today's post is a little peek into our lifestyle in Fort Collins. For you numbers folks:Population: about 146,000
Altitude: 4,984 feet
Location: 60.3 miles north of the state capitol of Denver; 46 miles south of Cheyenne, Wyoming's state capitol.
Temperature: Average summer highs are about 85 degrees Fahrenheit (July); Winter lows average 13.7 (January)
General weather: We enjoy about 300 days of sunshine a year.
Other random tidbits:
We're pretty casual people. Lots of blue jeans and outdoorsy apparel.
Public transportation has traditionally been frustrating and inconvenient. (Hopefully that's changing.) So we go most places in our cars, but we tend to not be the most courteous drivers.
More than 23 miles of walking and biking trails criss-cross the city.
We once had a topless donut shop. It didn't last very long but made a big splash while it was here.
We still have a two-screen drive-in movie theater.
We're known as the Napa Valley of microbrews.
Old Town Fort Collins was the inspiration for Disneyland's Main Street.
That's all for today! Enjoy your day off.
