Lafayette featured as a Best Small-Town Day Trip

Conde Nast article names Lafayette as a best small-town day trip hot air balloon above the mountains

Condé Nast Traveler Magazine featured Lafayette as one of "The Best Small-Town Day Trips From Denver, Colorado" in its April issue, and highlighted a number of local businesses. 


Afternoon and early evening are the optimal times to explore the rambling town of Lafayette's colorful center, which is still transitioning from its rural roots—but don’t discount the imaginative entrepreneurs bringing new originality to its streets. From the veranda of the cider mecca Acreage, patrons can view the sweeping peaks of the Rocky Mountains while sipping the latest flavor profile of cider maker Patrick Combs. 

Local gem Vintrey Honest Goods, imagined by brother and sister duo Jordan and Liz Lewis, displays timeless woolen textiles and personally sourced goods like handmade Flora leather backpacks. 

For travelers seeking some down-home comforts, the welcoming front porches of East Simpson Coffee Company are the perfect stop. 

Teocalli Cocina is the town favorite for lunch and the sophisticated Community Supper Club for dinner.

Condé Nast Traveler is a luxury and lifestyle travel magazine published by Condé Nast. The magazine has won 25 National Magazine Awards.
