The Fort Collins Trolley

One of the things we had to do on our trip back to Fort Collins was take a ride on the trolley.  We rode on it once or twice when we lived in Fort Collins, and since it's so unique and fun we had to ride it again. 
The Trolley is open on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as holidays during the summer months.  It runs from City Park along Mountain Avenue to Howes Street, just west of Old Town Fort Collins.
The trolley is a huge hit with most kids.  Ours was a little nervous, but ended up enjoying the ride right at the end.
After everyone got off, I lingered a little longer to take pictures of the inside.  They've done a wonderful job restoring the trolley.  One cool thing is the seat backs slide so they change direction, depending on what direction the trolley is going. 
The trolley is at the top of the list of things to see and do in Fort Collins.  If you visit in the summer months over a weekend take a trolley ride! 

Nearest City: Fort Collins, CO
Location: City Park, Fort Collins and along Mountain Avenue
Time Needed: 30 minutes- 1 hour
Difficulty: Easy
Kid Friendly: Yes
Additional Info:  www.fortnet.org/trolley  Cost $2/Adult  $1/Kids & Seniors  The tickets are round-trip.
The trolley runs from noon -5 PM, so if you're riding from the downtown end, it's best to catch your ride before 4-4:30.  One even better thing we heard was that the Trolley can be chartered for special groups or occasions.  It costs $45/hour and can hold 28 people at one time.  This would be awesome for a family reunion or other large group activity!
