Things to do

We are centrally located just a short 2 hour drive to New Orleans.  In the Big Easy you can take a ride on the historic Steamboat Natchez on the Mississippi River, visit Oak Alley Plantation or Laura Plantation which is just two of the many plantations in the area, hop on and off the two-story sightseeing bus and learn about the city and its history, visit the famous French Quarter and Bourbon Street where Mardi Gras is celebrated or attend a New Orleans Saints game at the Superdome.  These just name a few of the many activities to choose from in this unique city with its unique history and charm.

Only a short 30 minute drive north to Breaux Bridge and you can take a swamp tour of our stunning Atchaflaya Basin and see alligators in their natural habitat, or sample crawfish in the Crawfish Capital of the World.  A short 30 minute drive northwest and visit Lafayette, a city teeming with festivals year round-from beer to boudin, shrimp to gumbo- there is literally something happening every week.  Or just stay and experience what we have to offer locally.  Visit Avery Island where the world famous Tobasco pepper sauce is made, tour the stunning botanical gardens and wildlife at Rip Van Winkle Gardens on Jefferson Island, or tour The Shadows on the Teche, a restored and elegant Georgian mansion, and a take a peek of what life was like on a southern plantation during the 1800’s.  A hour west and you will find our state capital, Baton Rouge, where you might want to attend an LSU football game.  Travel 30 minutes south and you will find yourself at Cypremort Point on Vermillion Bay.   A half-mile stretch of a man-made beach provides a delightful area for relaxing, picnicking and enjoying the water. It also affords an opportunity for fishing, crabbing, water skiing, windsurfing and, of course, sailing.

As you can see, you can travel just a short distance in any direction and find an abundance of things to do.
