Nice tour with Randy of something we knew very little about. Learned a lot. Quite technical in some bits but also interesting about the river, dredging, etc.

Wedell-Williams Memorial Aviation & Cypress Sawmill Museum

Reviewed By RiverCajun - Lafayette, Louisiana, United States

Stopped just off Highway 90 in Patterson, Louisiana. Free. Interesting film on airplane racing in early 20s and its impact on aviation in the US. Also discusses the impact the Wedell/Williams had on power flight. Also, next door are very interesting displays on the cypress sawmill development in south Louisiana. Very interesting film available also. Free parking and lots of restaurants available nearby. Good place to stop if traveling between New Orleans and Lafayette via Hwy 90.

Amelia Belle Casino

With more than 800 slots and 15 table games, Amelia Belle has something for everyone.

Reviewed By Ocean_Rover_Blue_Wat - Lafayette, Louisiana

The casino is on a paddle wheel boat docked in Amelia. It has the usual gambling machines and tables. It is no substitute for Las Vegas. Once you join and frequent it, they send you many gifts including gasoline reimbursement. Nice touch.

Brownell Memorial Park

Reviewed By TOM S - New Orleans, Louisiana

If your'e in the area and into interesting places it's worth a visit. It's a bell tower built mid 70's and at the time, maybe still is, one of the tallest free standing bell towers in the world-106 feet. Has 61 bells and when the chime it will send chills up your spine.

Lake End Park

Reviewed By TwoFrogsinaPod - Corpus Christi, Texas

We stayed 3 weeks and were very pleased. Our first weekend was right before Mardi Gras, and -- yes, the park was full and there were a LOT of children. However, after the holiday, things got much quieter. There are two main parts - The main section has lovely old oak trees with elegant Spanish Moss. The "levee" section is more open, but -- with our fifth wheel backed up to the lake, the view was great! In fact, we had the opportunity to move from the lake view area to the tree-filled area, but decided to stay by the lake because we enjoyed watching the coots and ducks and feeling like we were on a ship.
The staff was very friendly. The laundry room has four washers (front loaders) and 4 dryers.
We saw black squirrels (lots in the trees), raccoons (only one - at night), nutria (early in the morning when walking the dogs), and my husband swears he saw a small alligator swimming.

Cajun Jack's Swamp Tours

Reviewed By Seabee-Officer-11 - Atlanta, Georgia

Took Cajun Jack's Swamp Tour on Bayou Teche, briefly on the Atchafalaya River and the back waters. Twas a rainy day and went through three brief rain storms, but got to see some fantastic swamp lands, Cypress forests, photographic tree and landscape scenes reflected in the calm back waters and enjoy the swamp boat trip with about 12 other people. Viewed a flying Bald Eagle, several shore line White Egrets, a Cormorant and flying Blue Heron. The water was too high to see any alligators but the shore line was fantastic with up to 800-1.600 year old Cypress Trees in the Bayou area. Capt. Jack's explanation of the age of the Cypress Trees, Indian History, and numbers and types of alligators, birds and animals in the Bayou were very informative and interesting.

Cajun Coast Visitors & Convention Bureau

Visit the Interpretative and Welcome Center to learn about the Cajun Coast. Then, step into an unspoiled South Louisiana swamp by stepping outside our doors. As you stroll the covered walkway around the building, view tupleo and cypress trees, hear cicada, spy an American Bald Eagle or catch a glimpse of Cayenne — the 6-foot American Alligator who lives in the swamp behind the visitor center.

Looks quite new and needs a sign outside on the building so you actually know what it is. Overly helpful.

Mosquito Bar

Reviewed By CinnMinn2014 - Minneapolis, Minnesota

We happened upon this bayou side bar located in Stephensville LA... Doesn't look like much from the outside ..but when we adventured inside...I was surprised to find a clean and unique bar! The bartender was very friendly. If you like little out of the way bars this is worth the trip from Morgan City or Pierre Part...(4 mile Bayou). Bayou leads into the south end of Lake Verret.
