The sun is setting just a little earlier and the last big BBQs of the summer usually happen during Labor Day weekend. But there are still ways to fit in some last-minute summertime activities.
Enjoy a Downtown Patio
There’s no better way to enjoy the beautiful evenings than to sit back and relax on any number of patios around town. You can pick your favorite spot at restaurants, bars or breweries. Austin’s downtown or on Harmony Road both have great outdoor patio space and great food. Otto Pint at Harmony and Lemay rolls opens its doors to flow to their outdoor space. (Pair your pint with one of their brick oven pizzas.) In midtown, you can find Maxline Brewing, CB Potts and Bar Louie.
Find a Food Truck
If you look around, it won’t be hard to find a delicious Fort Collins food truck. New Belgium, CB Potts (Mulberry Tap Room location) and Snowbank Brewing are some well-known places for food trucks to park. The Food Truck Rally happens at City Park each Tuesday through September 24. On the south end of Fort Collins, Fossil Creek Park is the hosting site for food trucks on Thursday nights through September 26.
Walk or Bike on the Trails
The City of Fort Collins has an extensive trail system covering almost all corners of the City, along the foothills, and even between Fort Collins and Loveland. Take an evening walk along the Poudre River or grab your bike or the City’s Pace bike and travel a short or long distance along the bike trail system!
Listen to a Live Band
Even though the weekly concerts in Old Town Square and at the CSU Lagoon have ended for the summer, there’s still plenty of music happening in Fort Collins. Visit The Magic Rat, Avogadro’s, Ace Gillett’s Lounge and Equinox Brewing for a great lineup of bands from local talent and beyond.
So go ahead and extend that summertime feel just a little bit longer. Fort Collins still has lots of activities to enjoy!
