Lafayette is a welcoming, vibrant city in south-central Louisiana in the heart of Acadiana – the area settled by French Canadians in the 18th century – and the capital of Cajun Country. You’ll find Spanish, African, American and Native American cultures preserved in the city’s historical sites, local festivals and dining destinations.
Lafayette was named “Best Food City in the USA” by Rand McNally and “Tastiest Town in the South” by Southern Living Magazine. What better way to become acquainted with this vibrant culture than through its famous cuisine? Sample local wines from Landry Vineyards or purchase beautifully decorated jars of local jams from Grinning Jupiter Jammery. The food trucks serve delicious gourmet choices that rival top-notch restaurants.
Learn about local history at The Vermilionville Living History & Folklife Park. The historic village has six original homes filled with artifacts and costumed historical interpreters reflecting daily life in the early 1800s. See the charming Acadian Village, a replica of what a 19th century Cajun settlement looked like, with many original homes included.
