Welcome to Lafayette

In the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun and Creole Country, Lafayette is known for Cajun cuisine, Cajun and zydeco music, and letting the good times roll in the Happiest City in America. Lafayette was founded in the Gulf Coastal wetlands by late 18th-century French colonists, and Acadians exiled from Canada after France’s defeat in the Seven Years’ War. The life and culture of Louisiana’s Native Americans and the Acadian settlers comes alive at Vermilionville, a 23-acre living history museum and folklife park. Explore the landmarks of downtown Lafayette and nearby Baton Rouge, or make a trek into the swamps and scenic bayous of the Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge just ten miles to the east.
