Owner description: Get a taste of life for the 18th-century Acadian settlers in this 23-acre village with meticulously recreated period homes, costumed staff demonstrating arts and crafts and a restaurant serving Cajun and Creole food.

It was interesting to see and learn the history of the settlers in Lafayette. Here you can watch them do reenactments, each house has a different reenactment. The landscape is so pretty to walk around. The boat rides on the river are only at 10am or 12pm. The gift shop has pralines and other southern goodies to buy. This was a great learning experience.

Vermilionville is a nice living museum facility. It provides a up close and personal experience into the Cajun Culture with staff giving demonstrations on ancestral activities. Nice.
Good Restaurant available on site.

This is like a small Williamsburg except its Acadian. It was a pleasant afternoon walking around and listening to the people. Liked being able to ask questions and getting more history.

This village full of houses that date back 200 years is amazing. There are guides throughout to explain the history in each house. We saw looming, weaving baskets, making clothes. Everyone was so friendly and very well organized group of people
