There’s pretty much one thing we can all agree on when it comes to defining what Northern Colorado is – it’s located north of Denver. From there, it gets a bit blurry. So what exactly is Northern Colorado?

It’s important to define what Northern Colorado is to be able to give you, potential buyers, better information.

After doing an Instagram poll, I’ve discovered that the majority of people consider Evans and Red Feather a part of Northern Colorado, while the results were vague when talking about Boulder and Longmont.

That being said, we can’t disregard the strength of the brand of Northern Colorado. Everyone wants to be considered a part of Northern Colorado.

The folks who live in Boulder, who voted, considered themselves a part of “Northern Colorado”. Interesting!

So what is Northern Colorado?

According to demographers, it is Larimer and Weld Country. These two counties are at the north part of the state, side by side, going up to the border of Wyoming and Nebraska.

So what do these counties not include? Boulder and Longmont.

From a native’s perspective, Longmont can be included in Northern Colorado, but from a demographer’s perspective, that’s not the case.

The major cities in Northern Colorado are Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Evans, Wellington, Windsor, Severance, Johnstown, Berthoud, etc. If you’re interested to learn more about living in Fort Collins, check out my recent blog post.
