Longmonsters go all out for Halloween. While strolling through old town one day, we saw this tent camp site of skeletons. This time of year you willl see lots of ghosts, tombstones, witches, etc in the neighborhoods.
For a fun adventure, ride your bike along the greenway to the airport. Eat lunch at Flight Deck Grill and watch the runways. We always see unique special planes and skydivers and the view of the mountains is amazing from here.

Longmont is blessed with numerous parks. We counted over 80 within a 10 mile radius counting City, County, State, & neighborhood parks. We always see folks out and about doing fun stuff. This guy was out on Lake McIntosh on a windy fall day. For more park fun visit our Local Parks Gallery.
Farmers are always doing something fun. ANother good silo and another good peak view.

Chicago Colonists love to light it up for the Holiday Season. There are several houses that go all out. The Brewhop trolly even does tours of these houses in December.
The Longmont Crit is one of our favorite annual events. It starts at the south side of Thomson Park every July. They even have a kids race around noon. Keep an eye out for it. We typically give folks a heads up via our fb page. Folow us to get these fun tidbits and more.

Longmont is in the "Goldilocks Zone," not too close, not too far away from the mountains for amazing sunsets. See our Sunset Gallery for favorite spots to watch the late afternoon show.
The Longmont Community is just amazingly supportive. Makes it a great place to live.
Bike out to the airport along the greenway and enjoy a hot dog at Flight Deck Grill.
Summer is Hot Rod Season. Whether it is at parades, at the downtown Cruise Night, or just whenever, we always see lots of amazing cars downtown.
So many views from town. So many favorite spots.
... and opne of the great things about living here is that you get to experience them as the season change. No favorite viewing season, just different.

The city always lights up Roosevelt Park in December. Thanks city for investing in Longmont and making it such a great community.
The North American Champion Cottonwood Tree used to be just west of town. Unfortunately, it died but we got to visit it a few times before it did. Then, it got made into art and a table. The Museum had a good exhibit on it. Check out the Longmont Museum as they always have good stuff going on.
What? Cow Hugging? Yes, the Boulder County Fair partnered with the Longmont Chamber to host a Cow Hugging event. They even had cold popsicles too! Follow both these organizations on fb & instagram as they are always doing cool stuff.
