Lafayette

If there’s one thing that sticks out about Lafayette, it’s the strong sense of small town community. (The unbelievable view of the Flatirons and world-class Mexican food aren’t bad either.)

Active Outdoor and Everywhere Lifestyles

Paddle around Waneka Lake in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains before heading downtown for a bite and a beer at one of Lafayette’s local pubs. Wander the verdant trails in a naturally recognized “Tree City USA.” Explore Colorado’s rich culture at one of the city’s many recurring festivals, like the Peach Festival and the Quaker Oatmeal Festival. (Come to think of it, those would go deliciously together...).

Access to Anywhere

Lafayette is one of the few places that can claim to have it all—and back it up. At just 21 miles from Denver and 11 miles from Boulder, the city has both a small town feel and big city amenities. The Denver International Airport is only a few miles further, putting most of America just a short flight away. Rolling plains to the east, the Rocky Mountains to the west, and you smack dab in the middle.

This Is How We Live West

There’s so much to do here I don’t ever want to leave, but when I want to get to Denver, it’s an easy drive. I can’t imagine being anywhere else.

I moved a few years ago and I’ve never looked back. There’s always something to do, so I never feel bored.

Lafayette isn’t the first place you’d think of for an active outdoor lifestyle, but it’s surprisingly easy to get out and around—from the lake to the trails and parks.

Lafayette has a wide variety of neighborhoods to accommodate an eclectic mix of people, from suburbanite to Old Town hipster. Located in a prime location just east of Boulder and a short drive to Denver, Lafayette sits in an area filled with some of the best restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, and authentic taquerias.  Bike trails and walking paths are abundant and connect to the Old Town neighborhood of Louisville. A small town vibe with contemporary tastes, Lafayette is a perfect option for those looking for a cool scene with a little bit of elbow room.
