Husker fans: Here's fun stuff to do in West Lafayette

If you're headed to West Lafayette this weekend to watch the Huskers take on Purdue, you don't have to sit in your hotel room when you're not at the football game.

We compiled a list of activities to keep you busy and active in Indiana, ranging from local group runs to visiting the city's weekly farmers market.

If you're a runner, you should have time to squeeze in a few miles before the 11 a.m. kickoff.
Join a local group run that meets in town at 8 a.m. every Saturday. For more information on the run and routes, click here.

Tailgating before or after the game?
Stop by the local farmers market to grab some fresh lettuce and tomatoes to throw on your burgers. The downtown farmers market starts at 7:30 a.m. and is located on 5th Street between Main and Columbia Streets. For more information, click here.

Like to bike?
West Lafayette has been designated as bicycle-friendly community, so bring your bike to do some cycling. Here's a list of “show and go” group rides. Pick one that works for you.

You don't have to skip your CrossFit workout while you're out of town.
