A visit to Lafourche Parish will take you into Louisiana's Cajun Bayou, just 35 miles south of New Orleans. You’ll be greeted with rich Cajun culture, from pots of gumbo to live music, and this unapologetic Cajun culture will have you experiencing the area just like the locals. 

The bayou stretches over 100 miles and there's plenty to see and do "up the Bayou" and "down the Bayou." Experience one of the many restaurants, festivals or stop at the local distillery and learn all about the Louisiana-made rum. Meet world class fishermen and take a charter fishing trip where you'll be guided to the day's biggest catch or take a swamp or airboat tour through the mysterious swamps, getting up close with nature.

Every attraction along the bayou tells a story about Lafourche Parish! So whether you're an adventure seeker or in need of a relaxing escape, these are just a few of the offerings in this beautiful area of Louisiana.  Plan your trip today and start making some #OnlyLouisiana memories.
