Things to do in Lafayette

Lafayette has a bunch of unique activities right at your fingertips. Downtown Lafayette houses its famous crawfish restaurants, a myriad of bars, clubs and saloons to get you acquainted with the city. A different rhythm can be found at The Children’s museum of Acadiana, with hands on exhibits and activities for kids about toddler age. The Vermilionville museum claims to be a museum of living history, as you can find a historic village and folklife park. These restored homes represent the Acadian way of life. A great place to educate yourself and your family, the museum is open until four everyday, but is closed on Mondays. Breaux Bridge, the self-titled Crawfish capital of the world, is a town in Lafayette that speaks for itself. Breaux Bridge (naturally) hosts a crawfish festival — one of the biggest Cajun celebrations you could attend. The festival is held in early May, and hosts incredible music at three different stages. Lafayette is crawling with Zydeco and Cajun music, making it a bubbly and all-around happy place to visit. Lafayette has the second largest Mardi Gras parade in Louisiana. All eight of Lafayette’s parades are wonderfully rambunctious, embodying the spirit of the festival.
