What County is Lafayette?
The keyword for Lafayette and its surroundings is “Acadia”. This is how the French settlers called their settlement area here in the swampy South. This Region was by no means the destination of these emigrants, but they first settled in the present-day state of Maine, from where they were expelled. Even today, there are inhabitants in this area who speak an ancient French in everyday life, similar to that of Québec.
Particularly worthwhile are the trips to the area of Atchafalaya Basins; a good starting point is Breaux Bridge (where you can also eat very well). Not to be missed a visit to in Crowley, the rice capital of the United States and Opelousas, the seat of a spice factory visit. One of the most beautiful mansions in the USA, Shadowns-on-the-Tech, is located in New Iberia. Here you can also visit the oldest rice factory in the USA, which is still one of the great of its kind today. In Avery Island, on the other hand, which is not an island, you will find the only factory in the world that produces the Tabasco Sauce next to a remarkable jungle garden.
Morgan City has finally developed into a center of Off-Shore oil production. A museum worth seeing informs about this. Not only because of the oil production, the coasts of Louisiana are not suitable for bathers, because the water can be reached everywhere only by alligator-rich swamps. If you want to spend a holiday by the sea, this Region will be very disappointed. Abbeville, Opelousas and Ville Platte are among the poorest cities in the US, Crowley and St. Martinville are among the poorest in Louisiana.
