Lafayette is a classic southern Louisiana city that offers good music, good food and lots of good old-fashioned fun. Explore downtown Lafayette with its string of museums, heritage architecture and vibrant street life. Tour the lovely cypress-lined lakes and swamps, teeming with birds and wildlife, and enjoy the city’s delicious Cajun cuisine. Lafayette’s rich Cajun culture has its roots in the arrival of the Catholic French Canadians who were exiled by the British Crown in the early 1800s. Together with other European settlers of the region and African and Caribbean slaves and indentured servants, the Creoles created their own Cajun and Zydeco music. Visit the grand La Cathédrale St-Jean in downtown Lafayette, with its old cemetery and splendid architecture. Drop by thecharming town of Vermilionville and peek into the living history museum with its restored heritage homes. Local musicians frequently hold lively Cajun Jam Sessions. Indulge in a laidback Sunday brunch, savoring traditional southern breakfast fare like biscuits and gravy. For dinner, dig into classic dishes like Gulf shrimp, fried catfish and smoked sausages.
