First off, Lafayette offers Acadian Village, a park located on 32 acres. It is a recreation of a typical Cajun village from the 1800’s. Transformed into a community with waterways running through it, Acadian Village offers several authentic homes of the 19th century that were donated by families. They are complete with historic wooden pegs and mud walls, each carefully moved and restored to its original state. Some of the finest examples of landscape paintings are in the art gallery, and a blacksmith shop replica is there as well. It truly is a step back in time and it offers some fantastic entertainment throughout the year.
Cypress Lake may be one of the most beautiful swamp like lakes ever. Alligators, turtles, birds and fish are all there to see at this landmark habitat. It is fondly called “The Swamp”. It has a rich history and historic significance to the people of Lafayette.
