It never disappoints for fresh cooked cracklins with that spice and hot fried boudin balls. Plenty of assorted meats and fresh and frozen.

Cathedral of St John the Evangelist

This quasi-Romanesque brick cathedral in Lafayette is worth a look.

Reviewed By peggyp2018 - Houston, Texas

Attended a wedding on the 30th of December! Cathedral was absolutely beautifully decorated seasonal decor. It was breath taking and so festive. The celebrant did a fantastic job. His homily and message for the newlyweds was so personalable and sincere. He had a beautiful voice as he sang acapella.

Martins Accordions

Reviewed By LizattheLake - Fort Myers Beach, Florida

We stopped in to see the miniature handmade custom accordions we had heard about from the locals. We saw, heard and learned so much more! After hearing about the original European accordions that had brought traditional music to Canada and then to Louisiana, the music morphed from Cajun and Creole to Zeydeco, each with a distinct sound. The music is composed and played by ear and passed on through families. We joined a tour group for an amazing evening concert by three family members, playing accordion, rhythm guitar and steel guitar. This group has won national acclaim with their unique sound. The group leader is the grandson of the owner and is an awesome talent. Don't miss a chance to visit this hidden gem!

Acadian Cultural Center

Reviewed By DrJim2 - Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

This center teaches the history of the Acadian peoples and their tragic history and eventual triumphs in the new world. It was history that I never was taught in school, but should have been. The introductory film is a good start but the museum adds a great deal to the film. My daughter did the junior ranger program here and we all learned a great deal from it. The staff here is friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend stopping here

I did their Twilight Zone room and it was good. Pros: The room looked amazing and the puzzles were sometimes a lot of fun. Cons: It was hard to see the connection to the Twilight Zone theme and the story was lacking overall. Additionally there were too many dis-tractors that really looked like they were part of the game but were not. While sometimes this doesn't annoy me in this case I thought they could have been minimized.

Vermilionville

Get a taste of life for the 18th-century Acadian settlers in this 23-acre village with meticulously recreated period homes, costumed staff demonstrating arts and crafts and a restaurant serving Cajun and Creole food.

Reviewed By Juancop - Lake Charles, Louisiana

My 15 year old son and I spent the day touring Vermilionville and were pleasantly surprised. Several of the houses had employees dressed in period costumes who were extremely knowledgeable about the Acadian era and were very eager to answer questions. Several of the houses are authentic Acadian houses that were moved to the site. At the end of the tour, my son commented that he learned more about Louisiana history that day then he did in a whole year taking Louisiana history in school. This place is definitely worth a visit

Begnaud House

Reviewed By Kenneth L - Rayne, Louisiana

Nice little spot to pick up some authentic Cajun souveniers. They also have a good selection of Cajun Music CD's and literature. Some of the literature is also in French. The highlight of Begnaud House is the Cajun Music Jam Session on Friday nights starting at 6pm. Many of the locals and guests get together to play Cajun music as it was played when the Acadians first came to Louisiana. There is usually a local volunteer historian in the place to tell you about the history of the Cajun people as well.

Reviewed By lenaturner - Morgan City, Louisiana

This place was amazing! It was clean and spacious. I was here for a graduation ceremony last year. The space flows and had no bad seats to view the stage. The bathrooms were clean but parking across the street and walking over isn't always the best deal.
