You will discover a forward thinking and growing community that takes pride in its small town atmosphere. We are a community of 28,000 nestled in the rolling hills of Colorado's magnificent Front Range. Location is one of Lafayette's major assets. Found in the southeast Boulder County, Lafayette is 18 miles north of Denver and 10 miles east of Boulder. We are close enough to these metro cities to enjoy their entertainment and amenities, but still far enough away to keep our distinct home town feeling and that quality of life that we all treasure. If you want to shop, Lafayette is the place. There are a variety of products and services available right here in town. From major retail department stores to quaint specialty shops - it's all right here. Pay yourself first. Shop Lafayette and your Lafayette Chamber members!
