Our Town That's Small Has It...All!

Thibodaux Named One of the Country’s Coolest Small Towns and One of the Best Small Town Food Scenes.

Raceland, Louisiana (December 2, 2021) – Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou Tourism acknowledges that Thibodaux is a small town, but we’re pleased to share the news that our parish seat received two BIG national honors last month. In early November, USA Today 10Best announced that Thibodaux offers the #2-ranked Best Small Town Food Scene anywhere in the United States, thanks in great part to our flourishing Cajun Bayou Food Trail.

This was a Reader’s Choice Award contest, in which the website’s readers – averaging about 5 million per month – vote for their favorite nominees in each category. After four weeks, the votes were tallied and the results are in: Thibodaux (officially) has an amazing food scene. Of course, we knew that already … but now millions of potential visitors from around the country know it, too! We couldn’t have done it without everyone who voted for Thibodaux and, more importantly, all the chefs and restaurants that contribute to our unique food culture here in Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou.
