Lafayette Indiana Winter Bucket List

Lafayette Indiana Winter Bucket List

North/Central Indiana shines through the winter months. Not only was Lafayette/West Lafayette named on Travel Channel as one of the top ten Christmas towns in the USA, but it’s also just plain beautiful! Lakes, ponds, bogs, and rivers still beam with wildlife, but the outer edges freeze up, making for some breathtaking, decorated landscape. Beautiful, extended (because of our “flat” horizons) sunsets and sunrises glisten on the bright snow. While it’s true, the temps will drop and you won’t want to be outside for long periods of time, there are so many fun things to do around here that’ll give you a well-rounded season!
