It would be hard for me to imagine a better place to live. West Lafayette is an ideal American city. I delight in the beautiful downtown area where it is so easy to walk around and shop in an array of wonderful stores. A wide variety of international cuisines are represented in copious restaurants. There is a wonderful community feeling here.
What I love most about this city are the cultural offerings. Purdue University is located here, so it is alive with events, lectures, musical presentations and plays available on and around campus. Annual Art Fairs are presented in town and many family-friendly festivals happen during all the seasons.
With the University here, numerous companies, and Purdue Research Center there are plenty of job opportunities. West Lafayette is very livable. Lots of parks, walking paths, and bicycle trails are dotted throughout the city so it is possible to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Ample affordable housing is available. All around it is just a great city to live in.
