Located in Ware County NNE of Denver and a short drive west to the Rocky Mountains, Greeley has a population that hovers around 100,000 and in 2016 was named one of the Best Affordable Places to Live.
Known as a college town with a fairly young population, Greeley has also become a haven for retirees. Although boasting four seasons, the climate is generally moderate and welcoming. With a wide variety of bars and restaurants, cultural events, and easy access to nature, Greeley is a relaxed, fun place to live.
The Colorado Model Railroad Museum attracts visitors from far-flung places, while those with more eclectic taste will enjoy the Greeley Philharmonic at the Union Colony Civic Center. Getting back to nature, the Poudre River hiking trails or Pawnee National Grasslands are a treasure. Concerts, jazz festivals, and rodeo events are scheduled throughout the year.
