Bayou Bounty

Crawfish, boudin, hot sauce - Acadiana has all the makings for a taste-tempting trip.

You’d be wise to extend your stay in the heart of Cajun Country. First-time travelers rarely allow enough time to take in the region’s treasures. Here, the folks are generous hosts and excellent cooks. 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 such as Prejean's in Lafayette. The city of Lafayette was recognized by Southern Living magazine as the South's Tastiest Town in 2012. Three reasons why? The amazing cuisine served at Poor Boy's Riverside Inn, Johnson's Boucaniere and The French Press (where you should order the Sweet Baby Breesus, buttermilk biscuit sliders with bacon, fried boudin balls and local cane syrup).

Taste some of the Gulf’s freshest seafood in cities like Morgan City and Houma where seasons aren’t dictated by weather but by which seafood is most likely to end up on your plate; think in terms of shrimp, crab, oysters and other Louisiana delicacies. For a taste of it all, join the Houma locals at Boudreau & Thibodeau's and try the seafood platter.

Be sure to try a few cups of gumbo while you're here. No two are alike. For some of the best around, head to the Louisiana Gumbo Festival held in October in Chackbay. What sets their's apart? They famously serve their gumbo with a scoop of potato salad.

Spice up your trip with a tour of Avery Island, home to TABASCO®. Stroll New Iberia’s charming tree-lined Main Street. 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.
