Greeley Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 46 photos

One of the top public model railroads in the U.S.

Its called the "Greeley Freight Station Museum" and it has to be seen to be believed. Its located at 680 10th St. and the phone number is 970-392-2934. See my "things to do" tips below for more photos.

This is the museum.

Greeley is located east of Loveland on highway 34, and is between Denver and Cheyenne, Wyoming, on highway 85.

The University

Greeley is also home to the University of Northern Colorado, long considered the premier teacher education school in the state. They recently upgraded their athletics to NCAA Division 1. While in Div. 2, they won the national D2 football championship a few years ago.

See my "things to do" tips below for more photos taken on campus.
