All About Longmont

Longmont, Colorado is a beautiful and growing city nestled against the northern Front Range, with a population just over 97,000, ranking as the 14th largest city in Colorado. The city was founded in 1871 by a group of men from Chicago. At the time, they called it the "Chicago-Colorado Colony" and sold memberships so they could purchase 60,000 acres of land for a town site and nearby farms. The name "Longmont" comes from "Longs Peak," the gorgeous mountain formation that is prominently seen all across town.

With over 300 days of sunshine a year, the area entices outdoor and fitness enthusiasts, craft beer fans, and families looking for a great place to raise their kids. It serves as a hub to nearby cities like Boulder, Denver, and Ft. Collins and is conveniently located to get to ski resorts and Rocky Mountain National Park.
