Let the good times roll in Lafayette

Lafayette’s wealth of cuisine, festivals, and music have caused many to call it “the Hub City.” And it’s hard to imagine a more happening, carefree city for Cajun and Creole culture.

If you’re eager to learn more about that culture, you can tour living history museums and recreated villages. If your mouth is watering for Cajun eats, you can fill up on shrimp gumbo. If you’re content to simply soak it all in, you can wander through charming villages and vibrant bayous as your imagination takes flight.

Lafayette favorites

Jump into Cajun culture at Lafayette’s spectacular living history scene.

LARC’s Acadian Village

Get a slice of Acadian life at this living history museum where you can tour 1800s homes, browse Louisiana souvenirs in a reconstructed general store, step inside an Acadian chapel, and jam to the foot-stomping rhythms of zydeco.

Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist

Dating back to 1821, the beautiful Catholic Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist is well worth a visit. Book a tour to explore the building’s ornate architecture, colorful stained glass, and inspiring history.

Vermilionville

Exhibits, gardens, historic U.S. homes, and artisan crafters transform this Bayou district into a rich, immersive experience of life in 1800s Lafayette. Whether you take a boat tour, attend an acoustic concert, or make reservations at authentic Cajun restaurants, you’re sure to have a blast.

Avery Island

Filled with colorful flowers and wildlife, Avery Island is home to Jungle Gardens and Bird City. But the island’s true claim to fame is the McIlhenny Tabasco Company, and Tabasco Pepper Sauce Factory Tours are available every day. Dine at Restaurant 1816 to complete your experience.

Longfellow-Evangeline State Historic Site

At Louisiana’s oldest state park, you can explore the natural details of the 125-mile Bayou Teche waterway and visit the grave of Evangeline, the tragic Acadian lover immortalized by the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. You can also tour an 1815 plantation home and learn more about the area’s first peoples and settlers.

Abbeville

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more atmospheric town than Abbeville. Home to countless historic buildings, a quaint, Cajun-infused downtown, and numerous yearly festivals, Abbeville is a popular filming location and the perfect place to let your cares float away to the sound of zydeco.

Best Lafayette driving roads

Purple squiggle

Bayou Teche Scenic Drive

Head south on Highway 90 and 96 toward St. Martinville, a charming town surrounded by swamplands. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can cruise along Highway 31 all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. But even if you end your journey at St. Martinville, you’ll have your fair share of scenic views.

Jean LaFitte Scenic Byway

Fuel up with a tank of gas and cruise through the heart of Acadian country on this gorgeous drive that passes marshlands, rice fields, islands, and Victorian homes. Stop in Erath or Delcambre for fresh shrimp, or catch some classic Cajun fare at the world-famous Maurice City Bar.

The Real French Destination Scenic Byway

On your journey from Lafayette to Grand Coteau, you’ll encounter a string of churches, museums, plantations, and historic houses. Some of the highlights include the Acadian Village, the Beau Cajun Art Gallery, the historic town of Grand Coteau, and Chretien Point Plantation.
