Info on Ft. Collins/Loveland Area(jarhead relocation)

I probably should have posted up here before instead of the national forum but it looks like I have a shot of ending up recruiting in Ft. Collins. I traveled through there many times as a kid but it must be at least 10 years since I've seen it.

I'm looking at Ft. Collins for more than just 3 years though. Colorado State has a good reputation and it might be a nice place for me to make a home. But before I find myself like a fool rushing in I figured I should get some info first.

Any information would be helpful. I'm 29 years old and have been married for 8 years. No kids. Want to start a family but really haven't had the time. I think the longest my wife and I have been together living in the same place is possibly 7 months. I just want to find a peaceful place and a job...where it's safe for the fam. Thanks in advance!

Loveland / Fort Collins is your place. Loveland is kind of a blue collar town and is going to be a bit cheaper to live in. It's close enough to drive to FTC for whatever tho.

I'm outside your window watching you read this.

x2. I've lived in both, more bang for your buck in Loveland if you're buying a house, but good options either place. I currently live in north Loveland and commute to FTC a couple of times a week and it's not bad. We've got a bit of suburban sprawl going on, but traffic really isn't that bad.

FTC is large enough that it's not just a college town; lots of neighborhoods that are predominately families.

I just did the math. It is, in fact, cheaper to go out drinking every weekend than it would be for me to pay for a legitimate therapist. What are you doing next Friday night?

FTC is fun but i think I would go to loveland. As posted above way more bang for the buck up there. If you're looking to buy Let me know. I know a great broker up in that area. in a few months there will be another one

Good luck and an early welcome to CO

I lived in Loveland when I was a kid and live up Fort Collins now. I LOVE Foco for a younger more energetic feel. I've lived in a couple other cities in different states and you CAN'T beat Loveland for a place to raise a family.

This is what I wanted to hear. I don't really know what other info I would need but I am pretty sure I can pick it up as I go. Now I really hoping I can go recruiting.
