Although the 1970s wasn't actually that long ago, the world has changed a lot over the last 53 years. Major transformations in pop culture, politics, technology, and the economy have all impacted the way people live in modern times.

Colorado is no stranger to these sorts of significant changes that have taken place over the last five decades.

For instance, who would have thought that rather than rolling up a doobie and heading into the woods with a guitar, as many flower children did back in the '70s, people can now legally purchase marijuana from countless dispensaries across the state?

A recent Reddit thread had residents reminiscing more about Fort Collins back in the 1970s. The topic of discussion: where people partied.

Nowadays, locals mostly head to Old Town, picking places like Bondi Beach Bar and Rec Room to spend an evening letting loose. And of course, there are always plenty of house parties happening around CSU's campus on any given weekend as well.
