Named in honor of the New York Tribune editor who was famed for advising, “Go west, young man” in the mid-1850s, Greeley has grown to become one of the largest cities in Colorado. It delivers a bustling suburban lifestyle with lots of choices for the fun, services, and extras that make the location so desirable. The city has earned a broad range of accolades, including Fastest Growing Metro Area in Colorado (and top 10 in the country), Top 20 Cities to Raise a Family in Colorado, #1 among Best Affordable Colorado Front-Range Small Towns, #7 on the national list of Fastest Job Growth, and recent winner of the 13th annual Best Tap Water Taste Test!
The annual Greeley Stampede is a two-week event that brings the energy and excitement of a rodeo festival every summer. The Poudre River Trail celebrates the city’s history while providing a 21-mile trail that stretches all the way to Fort Collins. The trail is a popular venue for marathons and triathlons. University of Northern Colorado and Aims Community College are located here, adding the educational and cultural value that a college campus brings to a community. Baessler’s homes and communities begin here, because we’ve made our home office in Greeley.
