The not-so-beaten-path can be more fun
Dance your way through traditional Creole and Cajun cultures in Acadiana
Whether you want that sweet, southern charm or high-octane thrills, you’ll find it here in the heart of Louisiana—where we cherish our favorite traditions. Take a stroll through history in the rustic Acadian Village, or immerse yourself in a simpler time in Vermilionville Living History & Folk Life Park. When you bring a boat out on Lake Martin Rookery or Spanish Lake, you’re sure to spot alligators and rare birds from a safe distance. The Cajundome plays host to everything from country music concerts to monster truck rallies and football games. A food tour of the area’s Creole and Cajun eateries is also a must—indulge in southern specialties like craw fish, gumbo, jambalaya, and more. Hotel rates starting at $55.
