Northern Colorado is booming with vivacity! Averaging 300 days of sunshine and abundant outdoor recreation makes it easy to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle. An affordable cost of living and some of the best craft breweries in the country all make life taste a little sweeter up here (elevation 4,982). Enjoy the pristine beauty that the foothills offer by visiting Horsetooth Reservoir just west of Fort Collins or Carter Lake and Devils Backbone just west of Loveland. If you’re looking for family fun, there are many nationally-recognized festivals awaiting your arrival–Taste of Fort Collins, Greeley Stampede, and Sculpture in the Park in Loveland.

This area offers great job opportunities and accommodates many lifestyles–from city life to country living. The Front Range is the main corridor to suburban living, with populous metro areas as well as small and large subdivisions, acreages with room for your horses, condominiums, patio homes or townhome living.

Many areas in Northern Colorado have been chosen as “Top Ten Living Places” or “Top Places to Retire” by magazines such as Forbes, Money, and AARP.

TIMNATH: Timnath is a small town on the rise (population 8,000). Once a quaint agricultural “bedroom community” located between Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, the growth of Fort Collins to the west and Windsor to the south has made Timnath attractive for many new desirable subdivisions.
