Located only a few miles north of Fort Collins, Wellington is a commuter community that shares all the same recreational opportunities as its larger neighbor to the south. As the town is located so close to the state line, it is nearly equidistant to two airports: one in Fort Collins-Loveland and the other in Cheyenne, Wyoming. While a small community, it hosts several annual events, including a Christmas parade and a number of community sporting events. Its close proximity to dozens of lakes and Roosevelt National Forest also provide added incentives to outdoor enthusiasts.
Wellington is considered the northern gateway to Colorado and is the northernmost town along I-25, Colorado’s main arterial highway.
