best family activities with 2 days in Cajun Country?

Does anyone have any advice on the best things to do in Cajun Country if we only have a Mon and a Tues? We'll probably set up base in Lafayette or Breaux Bridge. Then, I was thinking of trying to visit Vermillionville and Avery Island, and having dinner each night at one of the restaurants that plays Cajun or Zydeco music. I'll be with my husband and small child. Thanks for your help!

I don't know about Mondays and Tuesdays, but the Liberty Theater in Eunice holds music programs, and the Zydeco museum outside of Eunice also has regular concerts.

Fred's Lounge in Mamou also has wonderful shows.

I'd recommend contacting these people--They'd be happy to help! http://www.cajunfrenchmusic.org/

I also always like to recommend going to Cypress Lake on the UL campus. It is a small but wonderful swamp ecosystem that is right in the middle of Lafayette, so very easy to get too.

You can also get the world's best PoBoys from Olde Tyme Grocery (right up the street) and then make a picnic of it. There are swans, turtles, fish, and yes, even alligators, that kids (young and old) will enjoy seeing. Here is the Wikipedia link for it:


Bon Voyage!
