Small and diverse but featuring the resources and cultural offerings of a larger city, the greater Lafayette area is a fantastic place to live, study or work. Lafayette’s beautiful downtown area offers turn-of-the-century architecture, art galleries, coffee shops and restaurants with many different types of global fare. The city also features many recreational amenities, including biking, golfing, hiking and Purdue’s state-of-the-art rec center. You can howl with the wolves at Lafayette’s Wolf Park or explore Celery Bog Nature Preserve, Clegg Memorial Gardens and the Wabash Heritage Trail. Plus, Lafayette is only a short drive from major metropolitan cities like Chicago and Indianapolis.
