Summer Fun on the Cajun Coast

Summer Fun on the Cajun Coast

Paddling on the Cajun Coast

When, “Hurray, school is out for the summer,” turns into “I’m bored,” the Cajun Coast has got you covered! Not only are there plenty of outdoor places to roam, we even have some sneaky educational options that are so much fun, they won’t even notice they are learning!

Summer is great for experiencing the great outdoors along our coast and the many inlets that the Atchafalaya Basin affords. Boating and fishing are the most popular water activities, along with paddling along our many paddling trails, but swimming, water skiing, and just playing along the water’s edge at places like Lake End Park are equally popular for families. Swamp tours to spot alligators and trips to wildlife areas, such as the Bayou Teche National Wildlife Refuge with its viewing boardwalk, are also popular.

Outdoors play includes skate parks and mini-golf, along with playgrounds and parks for exploring.  There is even a spray park and splash pad to cool off.

A specialized family itinerary that combines places to play, museums with active-learning adventures, and even a bird’s eye view of the Atchafalaya Basin has been prepared to make your summer planning easy. 

And if you have an especially avid wildlife fan, history buff or movie critic, there are specialized niche itineraries as well. 

We also have many indoor options. From museums and art exhibits, to library performances, bowling and even FREE summer shows at the local cinema, there’s always something fun to do on the Cajun Coast!

So, bring your kiddos to the Cajun Coast and ban “bored” from their vocabulary!
