There’s No Better Place Than This Newsstand In Colorado

The internet and social media can be a wonderful thing… however, while having the world right at your finger tips has its (major) advantages, it has also come with a major downfall, as it has greatly hurt other outlets like broadcast news, magazines, and newspapers. Fortunately for us in Colorado, we still have access to some of these other “vintage” news outlets, via this awesome old-time newsstand:

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Located in Fort Collins, Al’s Newsstand and Tobacco Shop is one of the few remaining newsstands in Colorado that has been serving the community for nearly 70 years! Housed inside a vintage Old Town storefront, Al’s offers patrons not only 3,500 magazines and newspapers, but an impressive selection of gift items, tobacco products, comic books, books, maps, and so much more! When you visit, plan to take some time perusing the many titles, inhaling the sweet scent of fresh ink, and devouring some of their oh-so-buttery popcorn.
