Bayou Bounty Culinary Trail
Crawfish, boudin, hot sauce—Acadiana has all the makings for a taste-tempting trip along this Louisiana Culinary Trail.
You’d be wise to extend your stay in the heart of Cajun Country. First-time travelers along this Louisiana Culinary Trail rarely allow enough time to take in the region’s treasures, from its food to its attractions to its people.
Here, the folks are generous hosts, entertaining storytellers, and excellent cooks. Many of the locals trace their lineage to the French Canadians exiled here in the 18th century. They strive to preserve the Cajun heritage, which includes knowing how to have a good time. Join in the convivial spirit at one of the area’s Cajun dance halls. Spice up your trip with a tour of Avery Island, home to Tabasco. Explore the many bayous and wetland swamps. Stroll New Iberia’s charming tree-lined Main Street, and pay tribute to Louisiana’s official crustacean in Breaux Bridge, the Crawfish Capital of the World. And do save room for some of Lafayette’s best boudin. Now, go ahead, get started. We don’t want you to miss a thing.
