On the plains of northern Colorado, you’ll find a charming city called Greeley. Experience Greeley in a new way through all of your senses. Think back to some of your favorite memories. Isn’t it crazy that when you smell a certain candle, it can transport you right back to your grandma’s kitchen? Or how when you hear that one song reminds you of driving around with your friends. Our senses are powerful and they’re how we experience the world around us.
See the majestic bald eagles
Be sure to visit Greeley’s Poudre Trail to admire our country’s national bird. Greeley attracts visitors from across the globe for birding. We’re home to hundreds of species of birds making it a great place for bird watching. Travelers make their way here to spot Bald Eagles, Mountain Plover, Burrowing Owls, Great Blue Herons, and even the America White Pelican. A pair of binoculars and just a little patience is really all you need to get started!
smell the handmade candles or soap at the Farmers’ Market
Greeley Farmers’ Market was just named the number one ranked farmers market in Colorado in the 2021 America’s Farmers Market Celebration! It started back in 1993 and is now a year-round market that offers a wide variety of locally grown and produced food, including fresh and in-season produce, meats, honey, baked goods, and so much more. You’ll find unique gifts from local artisans and crafters that anyone in your circle would enjoy. It’s a great place where folks can interact with and buy directly from local farmers and producers, capitalizing on the rich agricultural roots of our community and helping our local economy. To top it off, the experience is more than merely shopping for fresh food. Each week includes live entertainment by local musicians.
