Summer in coastal Louisiana is all about making memories – for friends and families and anyone interested in getting the most out of a day spent in nature.  Tubing, fishing, kayaking and canoeing, all offer hours of fun in and around the water.  Long, sun-kissed days can even segue into cool, come-out-and-play evenings when you just don’t want the fun to stop. Here are just a few suggestions for a memorable summer day in our part of Louisiana:

Vermilion Parish 

If you ever wanted to see the Cajun wetlands of the dense bayous, then the waterways in southern Louisiana are the highways that will take you right to it. It is easy to get up close and personal with many of the small fishing coastal communities that dot the landscape in Bayou country. A swamp tour will take you to areas that contain furry animals, alligators, dangerous snakes, turtles and dozens of different varieties of bird species.


During season (spring, summer and fall), the tour guide will likely find many alligators sunning out on the riverbanks attempting to warm themselves using the heat of the sun. Your tour boat will most likely make its way through tiny waterways with moss-draped cypress trees, thus providing plenty of opportunities for viewing wildlife and taking photographs.

For a town with “New” in its name, New Iberia is very dedicated to maintaining its past. This is a town with strong ties to its history as illustrated in a beautifully restored main street and downtown area.

Enjoy the country style cooking and ambiance of Cajun cafes.
