“Humanity has gained its suit; liberty will nevermore be without an asylum,” declared the famous Revolutionary War General Lafayette in 1780. It’s no mistake that the Midwestern town of Lafayette, Indiana is named for him, and to this day upholds the quintessentially American ideals of happiness, freedom, and kindness toward friends and strangers alike. It’s a quiet place, though, and sees no reason to brag. You’ll simply have to visit and partake in the gaiety yourself.
Your journey begins when you take command of one of Travelocity’s Lafayette rental cars and make your way west along Main Street.

Whether you crave steak frites with garlic aioli at an up-and-coming bistro or a steamy latte and heavenly slice of sugar cream Hoosier pie, Lafayette hotels are near it all.
Once your earthly needs are fulfilled, it’s time to let your imagination wander to more ethereal pursuits at the Elliott Hall of Music, just across the river at Purdue University.
