Vibrant Longmont’s a family favorite

Longmont is a vibrant, bike-friendly, family-friendly, tech city in Northern Colorado. Just over 30 miles north of Denver, and 40 miles east from Rocky Mountain National Park, a Longmont vacation rental is perfectly placed to explore both. With a vibrant restaurant scene, cultural activities and festivals, a historic downtown, and averaging more than 300 days of sunshine per year, Longmont has plenty of attractions to explore too – all framed by the spectacular backdrop of the snowcapped peaks of the Rocky Mountains.

Things to do

Explore Longmont’s heritage

To find out more about the city’s history, head to the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center, but the region’s agricultural heritage is best tasted at the Longmont farmers’ market at the city’s Boulder County fairgrounds every Saturday between April and November. This award-winning farmers’ market is great family fun. If you are staying at your Longmont vacation rental without the kids, make sure you take a ride on the hop-on, hop-off Brewhop Trolley – which will take you on a tour of Longmont’s 11 craft breweries, 4 distilleries, and cidery.

Activities

Enjoy Longmont’s green spaces

Longmont is a great vacation destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Nestled in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, you will find three distinctive green and rolling municipal golf courses, plus more than 42 miles of trails and greenways. Close by, McIntosh Lake, St Vrain State Park, and Union Reservoir are beautiful spots for fishing, boating, swimming, kayaking, or picnicking by the shimmering blue waters. But it’s not just about the outdoors; Longmont has a lively bar and live music scene, including free outdoor concerts in the summer. Or wander the quaint downtown to explore boutique shops, galleries and locally-owned restaurants.

Weather

Summer sunshine, winter snows

Colorado boasts 300 sunny days each year, so enjoying the great outdoors here in summer is easy from your Longmont vacation rental. If you are traveling with kids, a trip to Roosevelt Park’s rose garden and wading pool is a lovely way to spend a sunny summer’s day. Between November and March, head to the park’s Ice Pavilion for a wonderful winter’s day out ice-skating. Although you are a couple of hours from Colorado’s closest downhill ski resorts in Longmont, you can try cross-country skiing and snowshoeing at McIntosh Lake, the city’s Sandstone Ranch, or St Vrain Greenway.

Natural features

Local parks and the Rocky Mountains

Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice when staying at a Longmont vacation rental. Kayak or paddleboard at local parks, enjoy wonderful fishing with mountain backdrops at the local lakes, or simply enjoy the tree-lined hiking and biking trails around the city. The town is overlooked by the stunning snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains. It’s just a 40-minute drive to the national park – offering another 355 miles of trails and unbounded opportunities for bird watching, hiking, biking, rafting, and enjoying the diverse mountain scenery – from crystal-clear streams, to flower-filled alpine meadows, hot springs, and rocky crags; dramatic views abound.
