[caption id="attachment_3399" align="alignright" ] Tropicanoe Cove![/caption] Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette is excited to announce our "Family Fun" Getaway Contest 2013 to our 2 great cities. The competition started on Monday, May 6, and we want to share why each business who has donated to these packages is so fabulous! One great winner will win the following package worth over $650!
  • Enjoy an overnight stay in a premiere room along with a tasty, hot breakfast at the Holiday Inn Express
  • Bruno's is famous for it's Bruno dough but we would be remiss to not share it offers some of the best pizza around and the options are endless from a traditional deluxe pizza to a peanut butter and jelly pizza!
  • Peanut butter must be a theme in our area as the Triple XXX Family Restaurant offers their famous burger, the Duane Purvis All American; 100% ground sirloin with thick, creamy peanut butter served on a toasted sesame seed bun with melted American cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onion.
  • We just recently ordered Kathy's Kandies cake balls and they are amazing!  The cake is moist and fresh and is covered with decadent chocolate.
  • Is there anything better on a hot summer day than a frosty cold root beer, coney dog and fries from Dog N' Suds?  Nope!
  •  Can a business be famous for its salad? Yes!  Arni's offers their "Junior Arni's Salad" that is loaded with cheese, meats, radishes, onions and croutons.  Top it with their French dressing and you have a "salad masterpiece"!
  • LE Originals showcases creativity and true art mastery in the designs made by Linda Elmore.  From custom beaded necklaces to cake testers, Linda uses recycled glass to create a special gift.
  • One-of-a-Kind Art and Fine Hand-crafted Gifts can be found at Grateful Heart Gallery.  (Little side note: My hubby has said I am cut off from shopping there, because I always have to buy something!  Ha!  He can't keep me away!)
  • An art gallery and shop full of the following; painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography, furniture, pottery, fiber, glass, drawing and much more! Artists' Own Gallery offers it all!
  • Gretel's Fine Gifts is my "go to" place for gifts for my mom, mother in-law and sister as it offers a diverse range of items from pottery, scarves, jewelry, decorative items for the home, and much more!
  • True family fun can be had at Tropicanoe Cove as kids and adults alike enjoy the spiraling Banana Peel tube slide to the leisurely Cattail Crik.
  • Every year one of our traditions as a family was to go to Mike Aulby's Arrowhead Bowl and enjoy a night of munching on nachos, drinking a pop, and bowling.  Arrowhead Bowl offers some of the best bowling lanes around and later in the evening bowlers can enjoy the Cosmic Express.
  • Great Skates Fun Center and Lazer Tag is Lafayette's only indoor skating center and offers true family fun!  Play Skee-Ball, Dual Driving & Motorcycle games, Air Hockey and more at this fun location.
  • Learn the history of the Battle of Tippecanoe at the Tippecanoe Battlefield Museum. Walk the beautiful grounds, enjoy the monument to the battle, and do not miss visiting the Nature Center.
  • Indiana's newest state park, Prophetstown State Park offers hiking and biking trails, the Farm at Prophetstown, and this summer a new aquatic center is being built and will be open for guests.
  • We left one of our favorite attractions for last; Wolf Park!  Howl, laugh and watch as the wolves interact with each other.  Don't miss checking out the bison, coyotes, and foxes!
