Lafayette & Acadiana

Welcome to Lafayette — the heart of Cajun Country, the cultural center of Louisiana's heritage, and the happiest town in the U.S.

Here you'll discover the rich history of our French, Spanish and Caribbean ancestors. Learn how these diverse cultures came together, creating unique art and architecture, music and dance, food and celebrations and a joie de vivre that has influenced not only the lives of everyone in our state, but has made an impact on the entire world.

Find the fun in our city with attractions, shopping, events and nightlife. There's something for everyone, so prepare to be enlightened, educated, and — most of all — entertained.
