Berthoud, CO

Berthoud touts itself as a town that’s proactive in planning for growth, while preserving and enhancing its rural character.

Fort Collins, CO

Population: 164,207 (2016 est.)
Elevation: 5,003 ft

Situated north of Denver and tucked between the plains and the mountains, Fort Collins is the last city on Interstate 25 north before you hit the Wyoming border. It’s also a gateway city to northern Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forest. And it has plenty to offer on its own, including a well-deserved reputation as one of Colorado’s top craft-brewery hubs.

Greeley, CO

Population: 76,897 (2016 est.)
Elevation: 4,982 ft
