A warm welcome and affordable family fun awaits you in “The Most Cajun Place on Earth!” Tucked into southwestern Louisiana, Vermilion Parish loves to celebrate our heritage and culture with friends from all around the world. The communities of Delcambre, Erath, Abbeville, Kaplan and Gueydan are linked by the Cajun Corridor that crosses the parish to reveal quaint towns, cattle, rice and sugarcane farms, waterfowl, tree lined bayous, attractions that tell the story of our multi-cultural heritage, locally-owned eating establishments and much more.
And when it’s time to eat, savor our authentic Cajun cuisine that won’t break the bank. Here, you’ll feast on fresh seafood straight from our gulf waters or on Cajun favorites made the same way grandma made them. From over-stuffed po-boys and raw oysters to fresh boiled crawfish, shrimp and crabs, we have it all and more. The only problem you’ll find is that you may wish you had a bigger stomach!
