People in the market for homes for rent in northern Colorado should look no further than the town of Erie, which boasts a range of recreational activities, almost perennially sunny weather (more than 340 days of sunshine per year), a stellar educational system and panoramic mountain views.

Erie's official website has everything you need to know about working, living and playing in the community. The municipality also maintains active Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Erie hosts a variety of local events throughout the year, including the Miners Blast harvest festival, the annual Town Fair & Balloon Festival and the Country Christmas Parade of Lights. For fans of the outdoors, the town has no shortage of places to enjoy the fresh air, as it currently maintains 149 acres of developed parks and 607 acres of open space.
