Great college campus
Smells a littel funny .....
A nice college town, not too wild :)
Greeley doesn't have a whole lot to do, it is a bedroom community where those that live here drive somewhere else to work and play. All you find here are discount stores, convenience stores, bars, fast food and gas stations. However, there a number of museums in the area, Centennial Village Museum, the city museum, Plumb Farm Museum, and Meeker...more
The performing arts programs at UNC are amazing - fantastic quality productions .. much better than the typical college fare found on campuses around the nation.Frasier Hall one of the campus performance locations and it is the building where most of the rehersals and classes take place.Flyers are up around the community, and the University of...more
This is a beautiful campus and a great school. It has long been considered the finest teacher education school in the state. The great author James Michener once taught here, and the library bears his name.In the world of athletics, They have recently moved up from NCAA division 2 to division 1. In fact the football team is playing Michigan State...more
One of the larger rodeos on the national curcuit, the Stampede starts the last week of June and culminates on July 4th. Besides the world class rodeo, there are rock and country concerts, carnivals, parades, art shows and all kinds of activities. Back when I would visit, the town of Greeley was probably about 25,000 and it would swell to double...more
oh, what can I say???Greeley isn't really that outstanding! I remember visiting Centennial Village with a group of Foreign students, visiting friends, going shopping at a supermarket at midnight and getting my driver's license back then........ and of course, studying hard... :-)more

Perkins is popular as it's open all night and close to the University. The only other consistently GOOD thing I can say is the staff are friendly. I went here twice, and had two completely different experiences.During my late night visit, I found the food horrible! As hungry as I was, I couldn't finish my meal. Now mind you, in the middle of the...more
We were a little lost, and didn't have the patience to find the place we were really heading to by this point - we were starving! We spotted Bubba's and decided to give it a try.The decor is typical western BBQ joint: woods, big tables, and happy folks muching away.Despite our hunger, we would have noticed if the food sucked. It SO did NOT suck! It...more
My sister recommended this place for our sisterly bonding meal .. and I am so glad she did! Located in a strip mall, the exterior is nothing to brag about, but the interior has a stream, a fish pond, and feels wonderfully serene.The spring rolls (a perenial favorite of mine) were delicious. Our rice bowls were simple and tastey. My only problem was...more
I especially like this restaurant for great sandwiches for lunch. They have a great menu. While they have a great supper menu, and often have live entertainment in the evenings, I enjoy their lunch menu and often go there for a great club sandwich and fries.more
This eatery is a local sandwich/dessert stop. We found it the first time while wandering the streets of Greeley. I stopped an elderly gentleman and asked if there was someplace good to eat nearby. He smiled, pointed to the end of the block and said - just past the bank in that shopping center - you'll love it.Boy was he right!We've been back for...more
Tio Juan's is a wonderful local joint, with pleasant decor and excellent food. Locals and visitors both frequent this eatery.The service was prompt and professional, they even humored us as we practiced our spanish :)All of the food we had for our group was wonderful and flavorful ... but the best was .... The garlic shrimp and the seafood soup...more

our favorite place back then was the State Armory - funny how you remember some odd things even 20 years later.....I did some research and found, that this place seems to still be around:"Open Sunday 11:00 A.M. - 8:00 P.M.; Monday - Tuesday 11:00 A.M. - 11:00 P.M.; Wednesday - Saturday 11:00 A.M. - 2:00 A.M.

Check out what's happening at the Union Colony Civic Center. The University music and theatre departments always have performances at Foundation Hall. The University film studies department hold a foreign film festival every semester (Thur and Fri nights downstairs in the library). If you're into the pub and bar scene, try Rafferty's or several of...more
Well almost...the only public transportation in Greeley is the City Bus known as GET. The bus pass is somewhat pricey in comparison to other similar sized cities and rarely on time. Or at least when I did use the bus it was nearly 20 mins late. Apparently they have a fairly small fleet of buses and most were under repair during my visit. As far as...more
My sister, VTer PeachiTish, has used The Bus for the past couple of years. As a University Student, using her student ID, she can ride for FREE! The routes cover the town well, and are easy to navigate, they even dip into the neighboring town of Evans! Rates are quite reasonable: 1$ per adult, and duirng the summer kids and teens can ride for...more
The street layout in Greeley is confusing to the visitor ..... a lot of numbered streets and you can get confused easily :)Street run east / west and Avenues run north / south [memory trick: eaST and STreet] ... so it's common to have a direction like 'the corner of 8th and 8th'. This becomes easier as you begin to navigate :)more
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.
Again I must agree with Forsberg21. I have never experienced this level of inconsideration, even in Mississippi a state well known for its history of racism i was treated with some level of consideration. At a restaurant which I will leave UN-named out of courtesy my family and I made a reservation for 6pm, we arrived at 5:45pm and sat in the...more
I'll have to warn you here, if you don't like what I have to say about this, consider that my viewpoint is widely shared. Is your ethnicity not to be described as white? Well, be careful here, because there is moderate danger of people not liking you for it. It's not likely that you'll get mugged or anything, but people are incredibly inconsiderate...more

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.
UNC is the training camp for the Denver Broncos during the off season / summer. You can find out when they are on the field, and watch for free. Call the number attached to find out their practice and scrimmage schedule.
If you are a Football fan, this is something to not miss. Being so close to their homebase, Bronco fans, families and well wishers are all here to cheer their team on :)
