Great college campus
Smells a littel funny .....
In a nutshell
A nice college town, not too wild :)
Greeley has a small-town attitude, which might be appealing to some, however I was not a fan of it when I lived there.
Greeley is home to mostly Caucasians and Hispanics, yet very few African-Americans and Asian/Pacific Islanders. Learning Spanish can be very helpful; many of the Hispanics are recent immigrants. But this clash between English-speaking Caucasians and Spanish-speaking Hispanics is a touchy issue. Greeley is not a community well-known for its ability to embrace different cultures, and that is highlighted by the fact that it is also a place where the immigration issues are at the top of local politics. While blame can be cast on all for the difficulties that have occured as a result, many people have a poor attitude towards Hispanics, and one should not be surprised if there is a cold reaction to someone of a different ethnicity. Greeley and many of its lifelong inhabitants have simply just not been exposed to multicultural society and it is difficult for some to comprehend. This goes for the GLBT community as well; this area is home to Marilyn Musgrave, who, although she sponsored a bill to ban gay marriage, was still re-elected.
If you don't believe me, look at one of the comments below; "Love it or leave it" is the attitude, and well, I took their advice. I left.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: if you spend a whole year there, you have to be prepared for any kind of weather.
Just don't forget, that Greeley is 1700 m above sealevel, so it can get REAL cold!

Just south of Greeley there is a small town called Evans Colorado, we found a small Mexican Restaurant called Mi Gallo Giro, it is nothing fancy, no atmosphere, and from the street looks like a small house tucked in between a auto repair and service centrer and liquor store.
We found this restaurant by accident as I pulled into their parking lot to make a U-turn and I am glad we decided to stop and have breakfast there. What caused us to take a second look was the line of people waiting to get into this little place and we are glad we did stop to look.
Breakfast was very good, doesn't have much of a place to sit down and eat but the food makes up the difference.
We came back later that day to try out their lunch and it did not disappoint.
This is defiantly not fast food, nor is it gourmet food but it is very good and the local blue collar workers line up to take it to work.
