It's a place unlike any other. Here, the river, industry, art and history come together to create a new community in Fort Collins. Art galleries, music venues and theaters compliment recreation on the river and preserved natural areas. Long-time industrial businesses work in partnership with new entrepreneurs. Modern housing, restaurants, shops and office buildings reflect the District's historic past and celebrate its future. The River District is not your run-of-the-mill downtown neighborhood. Actually, come to think of it, that's what makes it the perfect fit for Fort Collins!
