Ride through part of the history of Cajun music along this route through a rural area that is known as the Cajun Prairie. You'll leave the sugar cane fields and bayous, and move on to rice fields and crawfish farms as you make your way to Mamou and Eunice. Watch for names like Fontenot, Soileau and LeJeune on mailboxes and other markers.

Near Eunice, consider a stop at the Savoy Music Center, home of well-known musician and accordion-maker Marc Savoy. Nice country roads will be your route back through rice fields until you reach the town of Branch, when you will return to sugar cane territory. The only place for food and drink between Eunice and Sunset is a Chevron Station in Branch at the junction of Highways 35 and 365.
