I've lived in each of the cities of Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley at some point over the last 24 years, since first moving to Northern Colorado on New Year's Eve Day of 1999 - on the eve of Y2K and the new millennium.

I know ... the new millennium technically didn't start until 2001 — let's just get that out of the way now.

Each of the cities is unique in its own way.

Fort Collins has Old Town and lots of college-town amenities.

Loveland is a bit older but more peaceful and has some nice, serene views.

And Greeley. Oh, Greeley. Greeley has come a long way since being just that old, dusty cow town where the Broncos used to hold their training camp each summer. It's a whole new ballgame now.

More and more people are moving there from all over the United States, making it one of the fastest-growing cities in the country.

And when people do get here, they're surprised to learn some of the town's more interesting tidbits!
