Lafayette, the Capital of Cajun Country

Lafayette is located in the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun country. The area is full of historic homes on oak-lined streets, plantations, and a culture you won't find anywhere else. In 2002, I made eleven business trips to Lafayette in seven months and became quite familiar with the city.

Louisiana's Cajun Country - Lafayette

Arcadia, the land of the Cajuns, was the New Orleanians who moved southwest of Louisiana. They have a similarity to the carefree style of the Big Easy, and are deeply enriched in their heritage.

In 1608 the French settled in what is now Nova Scotia. In 1755 the French-speaking Acadians, now known as the Cajuns, were forced from their homeland by the British. Many became residents of the US eastern seaboard, but the majority moved into the Bayou country of French Louisiana.

History, culture, and a fun-loving family atmosphere collide in Lafayette. So, gather up that family and head down South for a day (or two) . . . that is if you can stand the mosquitoes.

If you go down to Cajun Country, be sure to take a swamp tour to see aligators and local birds. Airboat guides will give you a ride and show for about $25 per person. The swamp literally looks like an alien planet. It's nothing like any other natural site.
