You may not have been able to take a summer vacation this year and maybe school has already started for your kids, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a summer vacation. Your Fort Collins rental house is close to a wide range of fun activities and opportunities that can provide you and your family with plenty of ideas for a summer staycation in Northern Colorado (even this late in the season).
Having a summer staycation with your family, whether your children are young or teenagers can be as easy as making a list of seemingly simple activities and doing them together. If your kids are little, you might take them to the splash pads at Spring Canyon Park or Fossil Creek Park or maybe pack a picnic lunch and head to a park you haven’t been to before. If your family is constantly on the go and you’re looking for something to slow life down and relax while spending time together, playing board games together or having a movie marathon of your favorite childhood movies could be the perfect activity for staying in.
All throughout Fort Collins, you can find opportunities for activities that you wouldn’t normally spend on.
For something a little more mentally challenging, Fort Collins Escape Room or ConTRAPtions will push you to pair adventure with strategy. Escape rooms provide a unique experience that encourages you to work together as a team and test your mind in order to solve the mysteries, puzzles, and tests that will help you escape a room.
In Fort Collins, there are unending opportunities that allow people to stay active and enjoy the beauty of a Colorado summer.
From swimming to whitewater rafting, Fort Collins and the surrounding cities offer countless lakes for fun on the water. Whether you want to kayak, paddleboard, wakeboard, enjoy a day on the boat with friends, or simply cool off at a Northern Colorado swim beach, there is a lake (or river) and a full day of fun in the sun waiting for you.
Horsetooth Reservoir is one of the most scenic locations in Colorado located just a few miles west of Fort Collins. It’s a popular area for hiking, camping, biking, or even horseback riding, but it’s most popular for the beautiful views and activities on the water. Horsetooth is the perfect place for some summer staycation fun whether you’re boating, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, tubing, or water-skiing.
It may be a little late in the season, but you can still plan a day or weekend staycation the whole family can enjoy in and around Fort Collins.
