There is something special about places where people work, live, laugh and love together. Wellington is one of those rare gems. This little town was started in 1905 as service town between larger cities and has maintained most of the charm from years past as evident in the buildings and friendly residents.
It is located on I-25, 26 miles from Cheyenne, Wyoming, 10 miles from Fort Collins, and a quick run to DIA in Denver, 65 miles south via I-25. The view of the Rocky Mountains forms a majestic backdrop to the city. It is still surrounded by a huge amount of farm land - including Grant Family Farms - one of the largest organic farms in the United States.
As for weather, well it is just like every other city in Northern Colorado. An average of 300 days of sunshine a year, and relative humidity averages about 35 percent year-round. Summers are warm and have pleasant, cool nights. Occasionally, a cold winter storm keeps people indoors, but the snow often melts as fast as it falls. The area is smog-free with a large sky that invites stargazers from all types of life.
I think the weather and open spaces has something to do with the way people seem to want to stop and visit on Main Street. Most of my clients I have sold homes to in Wellington rave about the small-town "friendly flavor" of the place. Housing is priced great too, beating out the pricing of homes and condos further to the south in other Northern Colorado Cities.
