Dining in West Lafayette
There's a ton of great dining options for families, couples, or friends in West Lafayette. In fact, there are over 275 great places to eat, so you certainly won't go hungry! Our favorites include The Dock 231, serving truly gut-busting Americana fare: meatballs, chicken bacon ranch everything, oozing burgers, tenderloins, catfish, subs - you name it, they serve it, with fries on the side.
East End Grill is another popular spot, with an eye-popping BBQ rib brisket, that has kept diners coming back since 1912! This classic Industrial American Grill has a contemporary interior, a lovely patio, and friendly, energetic staff. They pride themselves on their craft beer selection, as well as whiskey and wine, so be sure to ask for a pairing. For something sweet, don't forget to make a stop at the Homestead, a quaint bakery serving up awesome cookies, cakes, and pies, as well as sandwiches to go!
Nightlife in West Lafayette
Those looking for a nice spot for a drink don't have to look very hard. The area is home to a great selection of bars, pubs, and nightlife options, in a variety of forms. Harry's Chocolate Shop is an innocently named bar in Chauncey Hill Mall that is not what it seems. This boisterous bar sits right across from the university campus and welcomes students, locals, and tourists of young and old into its kooky prohibition-era themed interior. They've been slinging drinks for 100 years and have a slew of cheeky merch you can take home.
The Pint is another great spot, with a slightly more chilled, intimate vibe, and a rotating craft beer list! There are even wine smoothies if the day is hot and you're looking to try something new. Keep the party going at Neon Cactus. This expansive nightclub on Brown Street hosts local DJ's spinning predominantly dance tunes and Americana bangers until late into the night. There are VIP booths and bottle service available for those looking to splash out at the best party in Lafayette. For the past 30 years, every Thursday through Saturday from 9 pm to 1 am, Bruce "The Piano Man" Barker entertains crowds with a live show. Don't miss out on this long-running tradition.
Daytrips and excursions
Those looking to get out and about around West Lafayette have a variety of options. A day trip to the state capital, Indiana, is always tempting for those who fancy a bit of city life, and it's only an hour away. Pay a visit to see the home of Purdue University, one of the top institutions in the country, and enjoy the friendly locals and cool local businesses. History lovers will enjoy Adam's Mill, just 15 miles up the road from West Lafayette. Built in 1845, this mill was powered by turbines until the end of its operation some time in the 1950s. This museum of recent American history puts on the occasional special event, festivals, as well as regular activities on its peaceful and well-manicured grounds.
What not to miss in West Lafayette
Whenever you're vacationing in West Lafayette, there's always something going on to keep you entertained. In April, there's Purdue Grand Prix, with go-kart races, time trials, car shows, and a parade, amongst other fun activities. Head down in May to the Round the Fountain Art fair, with local art for sale and for view, including sculptures, pottery, and jewelry. June sees the Taste of Tippecanoe, a fun, family-friendly festival with music, fireworks, and a ton of tasty treats to try.
Guests visiting in July should try to get down for July 4th, where the town puts on a great celebration: a patriotic concert followed by a jaw-dropping firework display at sundown. The Wabash Riverfest comes later in the month, an amateur canoe competition with educational displays.
