Home to Purdue University, this prestigious college town attracts the open-minded, educated, and internationally diverse. Art lovers value the variety of shows and events in Lafayette. Purdue’s Elliot Hall of Music produces over 1,000 shows and events annually, ranging from seminars to concerts. The Lafayette Symphony Orchestra and the Lafayette Ballet Company are two other organizations that put on top-quality performances. The booming agritourism sector is a highlight for retirees who like to break away from city life. Flower farms, orchards, roadside markets, local breweries and wineries, nature centers, and the Wabash Heritage Trail are just a handful of ways retirees can get out and about and appreciate nature. With so much to do, it’s hard to believe that the cost of living index is 10% less than the national average. The median home value is just $131,400. Seems like a great place to retire!
