Get a feel for settler life in this well-preserved downtown district of 23 historical buildings that are part of both national and local designated historic districts. Included is the Armstrong Hotel, a Fort Collins landmark that was restored in 2004 to its former “Art Deco” elegance. You're likely to notice a strong resemblance to Disneyland's Main Street USA: we're proud to say that it is modeled after our own downtown Fort Collins! Old Town Fort Collins is lined with nature, tourist, antique, retail, and candy and confectionary shops. There are a variety of restaurants (over 84 of them, actually) to provide a taste for any craving, and countless places to dine outdoors. Additionally, ride the only original trolley car west of the Mississippi through a beautiful historic Old Town neighborhood. And on any given day, you can enjoy the sounds of live music drifting through the square. Check our calendar for upcoming events in Old Town or visit www.downtownfortcollins.com for additional information.
