Longmont is a vibrant and dynamic community of 92,858 residents (2016) located along the Northern Front Range of Colorado. While the Rocky Mountains rise dramatically to the west of the city and its borders, the Great Plains and agricultural fields stretch endlessly to the east of the city. Longmont and the Front Range are known for a mild four-season climate, 300 days of sunshine a year, beautiful views and an impressive array of outdoor recreation possibilities. Longmont is home to several high-tech companies and a vibrant restaurant scene.
Longmont itself is the result of a vision shared by railroad investors in 1870 from Chicago, Illinois. These investors sold memberships in the Chicago Colorado Colony to adventurous pioneering families who headed west to find a new utopian society based largely on agriculture. In 1871, these pioneers renamed their small community Longmont in honor of Longs Peak, a 14,252 foot peak visible from anywhere in the city.
Even today, Longmont is driven by an independent and pioneering spirit. While the local economy has shifted from an agricultural base to a more diversified 21st Century model, Longmont has retained a classic American small town feel.
With over 40 local restaurants, locally owned shops and boutiques, brewpubs, public art and historic walking tours, Longmont’s quaint and historic downtown is a must-see. One of 18 Certified Creative Districts* in the state of Colorado, downtown Longmont is home to art galleries, 2 theaters, music venues and other businesses that foster and promote all levels of creativity.
