That is because Fort Collins is the 12th fastest-growing city in America. Chekr made the ranking, and Fort Collins is the only Colorado city on the list.

Chekr called Fort Collins, and other cities, a boomtown.

You might be wondering what a boomtown is. This is Chekr's definition.

A boomtown refers to a city that experiences rapid economic growth and development within a relatively short period. These cities and towns often undergo a significant population increase and witness a surge in economic activity due to various factors.

I live in Fort Collins, and there is a sense of excitement in the air. There are so many people discovering what makes Colorado great, and the excitement is contagious.
