Guess we'll have some new neighbors soon.

If 2020 taught us anything, it's that life is too short to not live it the way you want. I don't know about you, but I took a hard look at a lot of things in my life like how I spend my time, who I spend it with, and even where I live.

Luckily, we live in a great place with beautiful views, plenty of activities and wonderful people.

And it sounds like word about all of that goodness is getting out. Recently Thrillist compiled a list of the 'Underappreciated American Cities You Should Totally Move To" and Fort Collins was on there. I was drawn to it because of the word "underappreciated." I don't think I'm the only one who feels like we don't get the respect we deserve sometimes. We've got a little chip on our shoulder, don't we?

Well now we're getting some love.

Cities that were selected for this list are celebrated for their comfort, culture and affordability. In a way, we are the best, not just of both worlds, but all worlds. We offer small town charm with big city vibes.

Specifically, Thrillist described us as "a college town and craft beer haven where farm-fresh is for real." They also highlighted Colorado State University, our music venues, outdoor recreation options, and even our proximity to Denver. We were also applauded for the Holiday Twin Drive-In theater, which obviously was an entertainment staple during the pandemic.
