This is a college town but still small and growing and marijuana is legal here. There is a meat packing plant in town and it smells like it on Thursdays. Yes, we have Walmart. Cost of living is high, average 1 bedroom is $800 to $900.

POO 💩 AIR -At least two or three nights a week the JBS plant here will start burning whatever it is they burn/process, the entire city smells like defecation/excrement and dead animal when they do this. Cute little city- but has some secrets-

Greeley, Colorado, is a rapidly expanding community located an hour from the Denver area. While there isn’t much going on, it’s a great location for authentic Mexican food. The few events Greeley does put on makes it a worthwhile visit, and there is no shortage of friendly faces and places.
