    Why you'd want to live in Laporte

    LaPorte means ‘the door’ in French. In Colorado’s early days, French explorers thought it was the perfect name for this gateway between the Rockies to the northwest and the plains to the southeast. The community is still around and has avoided much of the population booms that hit other Colorado cities – which is perfect for the 2,600 residents who appreciate all this peace and quiet. Today, LaPorte is the perfect size for a nice small, welcoming and downright neighborly community.LaPorte is right on the Cache La Poudre River, where early settlers and trappers were said to stash weapons and other gear before heading into the mountains. The area also was part of the Overland Trail, an alternate route to Oregon and California. Today, the Cache La Poudre North Park Scenic and Historic Byway is an excellent starting place for outdoor fans wanting to hike, bike and more. It’s not far from Fort Collins for commuters but great for those seeking solitude. Colorado has a legacy of beermaking, but wine has proven trickier. Because of the normally harsh winters and high altitudes, it’s not the best growing conditions for grapes. But Ten Bears Winery has been trying to make a go of it since 2007. The elementary and middle school have received a 6 and a 5 review, respectively, from GreatSchools.org. High school students attend either Cache LaPoudre High School, Rocky Mountain High School or Fort Collins High School, all in Fort Collins. Higher education opportunities in Fort Collins include Colorado State University and Front Range Community College’s Larimer campus. LaPorte has been described as tiny, but it could also be seen as a tiny piece of heaven for people living here. The community is only 6 square miles wide but can be a wonderful alternative to those wanting to avoid the density of living in Fort Collins. However, it’s still close enough to town that it’s easy to head there for entertainment, work or to catch up on your shopping. via Search Homes in Laporte
