A modern suburb nestled in the hills between Berekeley and Walnut Creek, the city of Lafayette lies under the watchful gaze of Contra Costa’s Mt. Diablo. It’s just a quick BART ride away from San Francisco and offers up a small and charming downtown area surrounded by the California golden hills and an eponymous reservoir. Whether you want to hike, bike, swim, eat, shop, or all of the above, this is a perfect place to escape the big city for an afternoon.
