I love Greeley! It is my home. I cannot say anything bad about it. I have been to several different high schools in Greeley and the education provided has set me up for an excellent future. The colleges here are diverse and have great educational programs. I feel very safe in Greeley with the police force that we have. The Greeley police department has a great rep. The culture in downtown Greeley is growing and it is becoming a more entertaining place to be. The nightlife is still growing, but it is growing. Greeley is the place to raise a family and I would raise a family here. The Real Estate Market is huge. A lot of people are moving to Colorado and Greeley is expanding to fit those needs. I would say that housing and schooling a pretty affordable. We live in Colorado so healthy living is second nature to us. Greeley is small enough that commuting is not a huge deal but big enough that we have a lot of large companies to work for that are close.

Great college town with lots of shopping and great restaurant. Greeley has a great hospital. The mountains are very close by, so outdoor activities are virtually unlimited. Hiking in the summer; skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing in the winter. Greeley is great!
Greeley is a small town, but it has everything you would ever need, grocery stores, shopping centers, schools, close to Denver, it has a university, and a community college. It is a quiet town, not a lot of interesting things happen except the stampede every year. Everyone in the town is friendly and very helpful. The downside of this town is that the living cost is going way up and its expensive to rent even a small apartment! Also, the school district isn't the best either, I think they have some work to do to improve their curriculum. I grew up here my whole life, and I honestly would not move anywhere else. I love living in a small town, cities are not for me, the life in a city is too rushed, and here in Greeley life is more relaxed, and everything is close by so there is no need to make big commutes everyday. There are new stores and homes coming into Greeley so I think that in a few years, the population of Greeley, and the town of Greeley will grow, and that is a good thing, it means more employment opportunities for the residents of the town!
