We are excited to welcome you to our community in 2023 to attend the International Town & Gown Conference. As you begin to make your travel plans, we want to help find fun things to do during your down time. In no time at all you'll see why so many conference attendees choose to come early or stay late to use Fort Collins as the hub for so many adventures. Fort Collins is home to some of the best restaurants, breweries, family-friendly activities and outdoor recreation in the state of Colorado. Not to mention Fort Collins has a downtown area that inspired the creation of Disneyland Main Street USA! Let us help you plan the best stay possible with some of our favorite itineraries.
June is the perfect time to whitewater raft on the state's only Wild & Scenic River: the Cache la Poudre. There are several commercial outfitters to choose from to make your experience the best (and safest) possible. Those looking to hike, bike, fish or swim can do all of those at popular, nearby Horsetooth Reservoir. For a complete list of outdoor pursuits, check out our outdoor recreation page.
Fort Collins is considered to be a retail hub in northern Colorado because of the variety of shopping available. Be sure to check out the offerings in different parts of town or stick to our made in Fort Collins page for must visit locations and inspiration.
Some say people come to Fort Collins for the adventure but stay for the food and they would be wise. Fort Collins is home to some of the best dining options in the region. If you don't know where to start, book an Old Town Food Tour and let the tour guide show you the ropes. Otherwise, check out our Foodie's Delight suggested itinerary to visit just a sampling of the local favorites.
June often marks the official start to the summer concert season. Be sure to check our events calendar often for festivals, events and live entertainment occurring during your time here.
