New Orleans has some elements of small-town charm — beautiful Victorian homes, the mixed blessing of seeing the same folks week to week and knowing what they’re up to, a generally warm and friendly vibe. But technically, it’s a big American city. And when folks travel Louisiana looking to soak up the region’s culture, they frequently miss out on one its keystones: the communities, music and food of Acadiana.
This spring, I thought it would be cool to encourage visitors to check out Lafayette, LA and the surrounding towns of Cajun Country, so I pitched American Way magazine on some tips for an ideal weekend jaunt to my other favorite part of this state.
Get the scoop on zydeco breakfast, the Blue Moon Saloon and Festivale Internationale over at American Way’s site: A Weekend In: Cajun Country.
Oh yeah, and Happy Lent!
