Activities

The Cajun Coast is a sampler of everything Louisiana offers; in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere that’s the heart of Cajun hospitality.  Drive into the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area along the Bayou Teche Scenic Byway.  Explore the exotic beauty of the Atchafalaya, the largest overflow swamp in the US and home to a plethora of wildlife on a swamp tour.  Go fishing or canoeing in one of our numerous waterways.  Hike, bird watch or photograph nature.  Check out our recreational offerings and then get back to nature!

No matter what your interests, you'll find plenty to do and see on the Cajun Coast. Here are our recommendations for activities and sightseeing you're sure to enjoy.
