In some ways, West Lafayette is the attraction here, not Lafayette. That's because Purdue University is there. That means, that during the school session Aug - May, there are lots of activities based on student interest, courses and just the sheer number of you people in the area. Rather than create duplicate tips here, I just linked the pages, so...more
Along the Wabash River, every October, you can visit the re-enactment of life as it was in the 1800s at the French Settlement, Fort Ouiatenon. I used to visit a friend who lived a few hundred feet down the road from here. Re-enactment of canoe race, Indian life, woodsmen, hunters, trappers, frontier life.

They sell wine for those of you who are watching calories. They offer traditional pub fare and a couple unique dishes. One of the better restaraunts in...more

You can either fly into Purdue Airport in West Lafayette, or fly into Indy or Chicago and drive. Or just drive from wherever you are. ;) Likewise, greyhound serves the area and Amtrak has a twice-a-day stop here (once going north and once going south).Car, bus, taxi... you might be able to ride a bike, but I wouldn't reccommend it.more
