Publisher's Note: Welcome Summer! Get Out And Enjoy it ALL!

By Melissa Shrader Editor Publisher Fort Collins Macaroni Kid June 19, 2023

Welcome To Summer! 

There is so much to do in summer all over Colorado, and especially here in NoCo! 

Fort Collins is in full swing with Bohemian nights, Lagoon Concerts, Gardens on Spring Creek concerts, Lincoln Center's Children's Summer Series, Stargazing, and so much more!

Hot days in the sun and running through sprinklers or splash pads. Hangin' on the beach or at the pool. Getting local fruits and veggies at the Farmer's markets. There's so much to do and so little time to do it. 

Don't forget to get to the mountains and ascend to the peaks of one of the 14er's or stroll around one of our beautiful ponds or lakes, even your local greenway. 

Watch the wildlife.

Get out to the Grasslands and see the vast expanse of sagebrush and mesa's. 

Summer is a great time to create family memories and learn more about your family and yourself. 

Take a moment and think of something you have always wanted to do here in Northern Colorado, or anywhere, and try something new, you haven't done yet.

Definitely enjoy the traditions, but open up and try something new for your family. It doesn't have to be a big jump, just a little hop to something new and different. 

It could open up a whole new tradition.
