Located in the South Central region of Louisiana and stretching across the Gulf of Mexico is the haunting and mystical area known as Cajun Country. Filled with Bed and Breakfasts, inns and unique Louisiana lodging, Louisiana’s Cajun Country B&B innkeepers know how to serve up hospitality. The French Canadians settled into this area permanently changing both the culture and landscape of Louisiana. In Cajun Country, you’ll discover the breath-taking bayous, dance to the Zydeco music beat, and eat a bit of crawfish to boot! Experience the fascinating living history museums such as the Acadian Village in Lafayette and the Mississippi Mud Museum – where the recreation of the past merges with the culture of the present, allowing its visitors a rich taste of their history. In fact, this taste will leave you wanting more.
Take in a swamp tour in the Atchafalaya Basin, glimpsing egrets in flight and blue herons tall and still against the night sky. All along the Cajun Gulf Coast, you can immerse yourself in the wildlife of the swamps, or a deep sea fishing excursion on the Gulf of Mexico. If wildlife exploration is not your preference, perhaps a visit the to Liberty Theater, home of the Cajun Grand Old Opry is in order – the refrains of a rich diversity will resonate in your memory long after the experience. When you’re ready for a Cajun Country Louisiana Bed and Breakfast experience which is rich in culture, the B&B innkeepers are ready to receive you.
