5 Things to Do In Fort Collins This Summer

Summer is in full swing here in beautiful, sunny Fort Collins! From countless outdoor activities to shopping to craft beer sampling, we’re excited to share with you some of our favorite things to do around here in the summer.

Visit Horsetooth Reservoir

What better way to take advantage of the warm & sunny summer days than with a trip to our local reservoir, Horsetooth! Here you can swim at two public beaches, or get out on the water by renting a paddleboard, kayak or boat. Pack or pick up a picnic lunch and be sure to slather on the sunscreen for a day of fun in the sun!

Catch A Flick At The Holiday Twin Drive In

Throw it back to the old days with a visit to the Holiday Twin Drive In! Enjoy a flick (did  someone say Jaws, Animal House & Grease?) in a socially-distant manner, and still enjoy snacks from the concession (ordered online of course) and fresh summer evening air.

Cool Off In The Poudre

The Poudre River is a landmark in Fort Collins, and for good reason! This beautiful, meandering river is not only responsible for helping Northern Colorado’s agriculture, but it’s also a destination for whitewater rafting, fishing,  kaying & paddling. We even have a whitewater park where you can try your hand at tubing, kayaking, rafting and more. Several local shops provide rentals.
