Not only is Lafayette where you will find the second largest canal in the world - the largest being the Grand Canal of China - another startling revelation is that Kermit the Frog was actually named after a Purdue University professor of philosophy. Numerous famous people have had stints at Purdue such as Neil Armstrong and Eugene Cernan (astronauts), whilst some just called Lafayette home, such as Axl Rose of Guns N'Roses fame and Sydney Pollack, the award-winning director, producer, actor and writer. Amelia Earhart joins the list of notables as she prepared her plane at the Purdue University Airport for her last around the world flight.
A mere 65 miles from Indianapolis and only 130 miles from Chicago, it is a breeze to get out of this small town into the big city lights. In the county seat of Tippecanoe, Indiana, the town is made up of Lafayette and West Lafayette on the opposite side of the Wabash River where the Purdue University is situated. Whilst in this town you must make sure that you gulp down a root beer and gorge on a burger at Indiana's oldest drive-in diner, Triple XXX. Follow this treat with a visit to the "Knickerbocker" (earlier named the "Cherry Wood Bar") in the Lahr Luxury Hotel that was established in 1835 and was the first licensed venue in Indiana. The guest list alone reads like a "who's who" with patrons such as Mark Twain, Al Capone, President Grant and even Neil Armstrong. Staying on the drinking theme, you should check out the People's Brewery dating back to 1855 and taste a few ales on offer. If you want to compare the product, then go to the Lafayette Brewing Company or get a caffeine hit with the university guys and gals at the Greyhouse.
There is the Elliott Hall of Music where you can regularly see national musical artists and 3 different farmers' markets to jostle through while sampling Amish pastries or shopping for some local produce. Once you are fed and watered, head to the Wabash Heritage Trail and hit the 13 miles of pathways to work it all off.
