Louisiana's Cajun Bayou: Where Cajun lifestyle is unlike any other.

In Louisiana's Cajun Bayou, just 35 miles south of New Orleans, discover the unapologetic Cajun culture of Lafourche Parish.

The bayou stretches over 100 miles, flowing through our communities and defining our traditions, there's plenty to see and do "up the Bayou" and "down the Bayou."

Experience Louisiana's Cajun Bayou like a local at our restaurants, where you'll be served from a big pot of gumbo, or at one of our many festivals, where you'll dance to live music and the Cajun beat. Meet our world class fishermen and take a charter fishing trip where you'll be guided to the day's biggest catch, whether it's speckled trout or redfish. Outdoor adventure along the bayou won't be complete until you've taken a swamp or airboat tour through our mysterious swamps, getting up close with nature.

Every attraction along the bayou tells a story about Lafourche Parish, whether you're an adventure seeker, architecture lover, or in need of a relaxing escape.

Plan your visit to Louisiana's Cajun Bayou and discover the charm of our unspoiled beauty.
