Louisiana Bucket List ~Cajun Country Region

Here comes the final region in Louisiana, but perhaps the one it is most associated with as a state aside from Mardi Gras in New Orleans, the Cajun Country region.

Breaux Bridge

  • Cajun Country Swamp Tour: What better way to explore the bayou region that to take a swamp tour.

Cypremort Point

  • Cypremort Point State Park: Looks like a nice way to experience the Bay area.

Grand Isle

  • Grand Isle State Park: We took a day to visit Grand Isle during our time in New Orleans, because we wanted to say we visited the Gulf. The water wasn’t safe for swimming when we visited, but we did stick our feet in the water and got to see some dolphins from the pier.


  • Gator Chateau: This place claims to be home to rescued baby alligators, so I’m all in for this one!


  • Bayou Rum Distillery: This allows visitors to visit the largest private rum distillery in the U.S.

Lake Charles

  • Sam Houston Jones State Park: Looks like a neat bayou and marshy ecosystem.

New Iberia

  • Tabasco Country Store and Visitor Center, McIlhenny Company: Here you can take a tour of the legendary Tabasco company.

St. Martinville

  • Lake Fausse Pointe State Park: Another state park that could lead to some fun bayou hikes.

Ville Platte

  • Chicot State Park: Once again, a beautiful park that will give you a taste of Louisiana wildlife.
