Things to do in Fort Collins, CO


February has arrived, which means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. While you’re ordering roses and making reservations for romantic dinners, we’d like to say a few words of appreciation for our beloved hometown. We could fill books with all the things we love about Fort Collins, but here are just a few that come to mind:

Locally Owned Businesses

As you are well aware, Houska Automotive was started by Dennis’s dad back in 1952 and has stayed in the family ever since. We’re happy to say that local, family-owned businesses are not a rarity in Fort Collins and would like to extend a virtual high-five to our fellow Fort Collins business owners. We understand all the hard work that goes into running a restaurant, shop or anything in between, and we want you to know that you have our support!

Food, Food and More Food

Fort Collins is home to countless delicious restaurants and specialty food shops. Between mouthwatering restaurants, cheese shops, spice shops, tea shops, food trucks and dessert joints, you can always count on having a full belly no matter where you go.

Jammin’ Music Scene

From the Lagoon Summer Concert Series to NewWestFest to FocoMX, Fort Collins has the market cornered on fantastic local musicians. We’ve had the opportunity to feature a few of these talented musicians at our Garage Band Events, and we look forward to presenting more stellar performers in the future!

The Great Colorado Outdoors

With numerous local parks, natural areas, and – of course – the iconic Horsetooth Reservoir, Fort Collins is an outdoor adventure waiting to happen. It may be a bit chilly now, but it’s not too soon to start making your summer bucket list!

Our Generous Community

And last but certainly not least, our favorite thing about Fort Collins is…YOU! We’ve had the opportunity to give back to our community through fundraisers, blood drives, and other events, but none of them would have been possible without the generous support of countless individuals and organizations. Thank you for always giving to our neighbors in need!
