What’s it like to live in Greeley?
Greeley is, for sure, never boring. Whether you enjoy the classic sounds of the philharmonic or the toe-tapping performances of a mariachi band, you will find something fun and exciting to do in our community. Every weekend a new activity, festival or concert is being held, and you are in the heart of it all.

Chances are you’ll find that the affordability here means you can get much more home for your money than you thought!
What’s unique about Greeley?
Greeley’s motto is “Great. From the Ground Up.” Some would say that it’s the green and outdoor beauty of the community that makes it unique. In addition to this, I’d have to say it is the emphasis on community and festivals. Nearly every weekend you can find something to do to get you out of the house and interacting with your community. From the Arts Picnic in the fall to Neighborhood Nights in the summer, which brings people out into local parks to watch movies with their neighbors on the lawn, you won’t have any excuse to be bored or lonely in Greeley.
Where are the good schools in Greeley?
Education is definitely a strong point for Greeley. You’ll have a lot of choices in Greeley, from private schools to charter schools to traditional public schools.

What are the best things to do in Greeley?
Are you a closet foodie or do you love to shop? Downtown Greeley has you covered. Here our historic district offers arts, entertainment and everything you can imagine to eat, as well as chic boutique shops to explore. Perhaps some family fun is more your style. Then the Family Funplex, which is part gym, part indoor water park, is calling your name. Ice skating at the Ice Haus, biking on the miles of bike paths through the community or kicking back at one of our community parks also comes to mind when I think of things to do in Greeley.
This is a community where being active is not an afterthought — it is a way of life. Of course, you can’t always be outdoors, and sometimes you need a break from the active living. When the weather is not conducive to being outdoors, head over to the Colorado Model Railroad Museum, one of our most popular attractions, where you can see the 5,500 square foot miniature railroad display and a variety of other hands-on activities.
Is Greeley right for me?
If you’re looking for a close-knit community that embraces an active lifestyle and offers the amenities of a big city, without the feel of an urban center, then Greeley is right for you. From spending the evening out on the downtown sampling some of the great cuisine or taking your kids to the park, you’ll find ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and the community here. Be sure to schedule time each weekend for the exciting festivals or concerts around town.
