Welcome to Lafayette
One of Boulder’s closest suburbs, Lafayette is loved by its residents for it’s small town feel, fun community events, local dining and shopping options as well as its many parks. In 2019, Lafayette was named the first “Bird City” in Colorado by the Environment for the Americas for the city’s focus on conservation, education and preservation of local birds and their habitats. Lafayette’s public schools are part of Colorado’s most sought after districts, Boulder Valley School District. Lafayette’s public schools are highly rated not only by parents, but by teachers, paying teachers the highest salaries in the state. Buying a home in Lafayette is more affordable than purchasing real estate in nearby Boulder, making the city particularly desirable.
