Jennings

Geolocation

Founded as a railroad depot midway between the larger cities of Lafayette and Lake Charles, Jennings today offers plenty of reasons to stop and explore. Cajun heritage thrives in local restaurants, music venues and festivals. Birding, hunting and water sports abound in the countryside, while downtown offers a host of unique attractions. The Zigler Museum, in particular, has been stunning visitors with its world-class art collection housed in a colonial-era home. The Strand Theatre, a 1930's-era movie house, now showcases performing arts, including a long-running, live country music variety show held each month. The Gator Chateau gives the public an up-close alligator encounter in a protected habitat, and the W.H. Tupper General Merchandise Museum presents a time capsule of mid-century country life, including an exhibit on the history of the telephone. Today's farmers bring their produce, preserves and crafts to the Jennings Main Street Farmers Market each Saturday morning.
