Town of Hygiene, CO


View Map

Hygiene, Colorado is a small, unincorporated town about one mile west of McIntosh Lake in northwest Longmont. The town gets its name from the sanitarium located here in the late 1800s helping patients overcome tuberculosis (TB). Today, the picturesque town of Hygiene, Colorado may still hold some healing powers. Popular with bicyclists and locals, this charming town offers Longmont visitors an off-the-beaten-path experience. Grab breakfast or lunch at Crane Hollow Café, then stop next door at Rabbit Brush Gallery, an art gallery and gift shop that features local and regional artists’ work. Before leaving town, check out Mary’s Market & Deli, the town’s general store, antiques dealer, and gluten-free bakery. All three are open daily, so whether you are looking for a leisurely drive or you’re thinking about taking a long, area bike ride, consider Hygiene. It’ll take your breath away.
