It's a hotel restaurant, but the enormous windows provide a great view overlooking Lincoln park and the restaurant has great atmosphere. (BTW, Lincoln park has a great playground for kids). The name and cuisine are inspired by Greeley's history.

Local place. Cheap, good sushi and ramen that's perfect on a cold winter night or just about anytime.

Local cinema that features artsy films. Amazing art deco style and includes a restaurant. You can eat dinner in the cinema and enjoy a great film. Great selection of classic cocktails to go with dinner. Not particularly for families.

The absolute best brewery in Northern Colorado. The first year it opened, it medaled in the Great American Beer Festival and won USA Today's best new brewery. If you are into craft beer, this is a must visit for you. The tap house is large, open, and family friendly with couches and places to play games. There is craft soda for purchase for those younger than 21. There are usually a couple of food trucks nearby for food and downtown is just a stroll away. If you like IPAs, Juicy Bits is my favorite. Watch out for release days. People come from all over the US to purchase of a bottle of specialty beer and lines can wrap a few blocks.

An under-the-radar brewery, but does a fantastic job. The tap house is small and it's located in the industrial side of town, but the trek is worth it for the craft beer affectionado.

Craft cocktails with large, open tap house. This is a fun local place if you need a break from craft beer and would rather have a gin, vodka, or bourbon cocktail.

Prefer tea to coffee? This is your place. A hip tea shop serving herbal teas, small plates, sandwiches, and tea cocktails. (and they also have coffee)

Never had a breakfast burrito? Try one from here. Make sure you get the added cheese. I prefer the 1/2 and 1/2 as the hot is too spicy for my taste. The breakfast meats in the burritos rotate daily.

Sightseeing

Only two blocks from our house! A beautiful, historic park, with a walking path all the way around and a playground for littles. Birds we have spotted in the pond include herons, cormorants, storks, plus lots of ducks and geese!

This is great for little kids (2-6) or any model railroad enthusiast. It's one of the largest indoor model railroads and sometimes they have really long trains (100+ cars) running. Check the times before you go. The museum sometimes has weird hours.

Interested in Greeley history or pioneer history? This collection of historic houses gives you a glimpse into what life was like as an early settler. There are still historic houses scattered around our neighborhood. Head east a few blocks and you might spot some original houses. They will have a small placard discussing their historical significance.

The gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. There are lots of fun shops, ice cream, and candy stores in the cut downtown area. The Taffy is a must. Estes is a good hour to hour and half away. See my notes in the house manual for how to make the most of a day trip to Estes and RMNP.

This is a paved pathway that meanders with the Poudre River. The path is perfect for a bike ride, strollers, or a brisk walk. The best part of the trail starts at 71st Ave and goes west.
