Local Area Overview
Acadian Village - If you think restored rooms or houses are merely child’s play, visit this entire historic Cajun town. The Acadian Village was built to create jobs for the community and has since taught thousands of visitors more about the rich history of Acadian culture.
Blue Dog Café - If you enjoy eating shrimp gumbo to the sounds of rub boards and accordions, the Blue Dog Café is the place to be. Featuring excellent Cajun food and entertainment, the Blue Dog Café is a restaurant that wants its guests to stay and enjoy as long as they please.
Atchafalaya - While a swamp usually isn’t considered a prime venue for a first date, the beautiful Atchafalaya River swamplands provide the perfect landscape for photographers, bird and animal watching and, yes, maybe even a romantic couple or two.
Evangeline Downs Racetrack and Casino - Sometimes gambling on horses just feels right. Sometimes after losing money by gambling on horses, throwing down the rest of your cash on slot machines feels even better. Sometimes, it's nice to get a $12 steak for $4.50, priced on the assumption that you spent more than $7.50 on horse betting and slot machines, which you likely did.
