Spring Break 2014! Spend yours in Lafayette and West Lafayette, Indiana!
Things to Do in Lafayette, Indiana
The Arts – Did you know Lafayette-West Lafayette is rich in the arts? There are over 17 art galleries all within our two cities! I personally think we have an art mecca that is undiscovered by many. Fine art, from oil paintings and fine art prints to glass art, sculpture and contemporary pieces; there is something unique for everyone. Visitors could spend a whole weekend exploring our art galleries. There are also over 45 pieces of outdoor art ranging from sculptures, community fountains, and more. (Note: don’t miss visiting our 70 specialty shops located downtown Lafayette- many of them feature local artwork!)
History – My family are huge history buffs and I have grown up exploring areas all over the United States that have historical significance. Did you know that a great battle was fought here that lead to the Battle of 1812? The Battle of Tippecanoe between the United States’ forces, led by William Henry Harrison and representatives of Tecumseh’s Native American confederation took place on November 7, 1811. A National Historic Landmark, located in a 96-acre park setting in Battle Ground, Indiana, along with a museum and nature center are open for visitors to explore.
Outdoors — Nearby, visitors can explore Indiana’s newest state park, Prophetstown State Park. Take a walk around the Native American village and attend one of the many public programs about nature or history. Discover the Farmstead within the park, where valuable lessons are uncovered. Special programs, horse-drawn trolley rides, interesting interpretations and demonstrations are available.
