Highlighted Community: Lafayette Colorado

Antique Shop in Downtown LafayetteThis week I wanted to highlight a community that has one of the most desired features that my clients look for in their home search, location, location, location. Lafayette is nestled in the rolling hills of Colorado’s magnificent Front Range.  Located just minutes from Boulder and a short distance from Denver, Lafayette offers proximity to these metro cities that offer entertainment and amenities that will excite anyone.  

There are many cultural and recreational opportunities found in Lafayette. The Bob L. Burger Recreation Center includes a gymnasium, racquetball courts, running track, dance studio, fitness atrium and 3-pool aquatics area with waterfalls and water-slide and an outdoor in-line skating area. Lafayette has 20 neighborhood parks. Waneka Lake has boat rentals, picnic facilities and a jogging-fitness trail. LaMont Does Park includes an outdoor swimming pool, picnic and play areas, tennis courts, and athletic fields. Do you like to golf? Lafayette features the championship Indian Peaks Golf Course designed by Hale Irwin which is rated one of the finest golf courses in the nation by Golf Digest Magazine.  Not to mention the many festivals that are held annually including the Quaker Oatmeal festival and the Peach Festival.  Lafayette features an eclectic downtown with art on the street sculpture exhibits and an abundance of shopping, restaurants and local breweries sure to appeal to any taste.
