"A less expensive alternative to Ft. Collins"

Laporte, Colorado is a small town of ~2,450 people. It lies just northwest of Fort Collins amid gently rolling hills with beautiful vistas in the distance. Many residents who live here work in Fort Collins which is only about 10 minutes away. Laporte is a great area for families who want to be near Fort Collins but are looking for less expensive housing. On average, the homes in Laporte are about $30,000 less expensive than the rest of Colorado. Income levels tend to be less here as well. There aren't a lot of businesses in Laporte other than a few restaurants and gas stations, and the few other small town businesses you'd normally find in a small community like this (i.e. a local vet, etc.). Construction is overwhelmingly the largest industry followed by health care and social assistance.

The schools in Laporte typically rate slightly higher than average when compared to the rest of the state. However, this little town is very family-friendly and you can often see children playing about when driving through. There are many single family homes, condos, and even a few apartments.

Overall, this is a good small town to live in for anyone who works in Ft. Collins but is looking for less expensive housing options for themselves or their family.
