Welcome to Lake Charles
“A Little Bit Country. A Little Bit Rock ‘n’ Roll.” While certainly not in the genre of Zydeco, this well-known song title just may be the definitive summary of Lake Charles, Louisiana. A blend of contrasts that magically works together in total harmony. A Cajun personality with a Texas flair. A love for big-city entertainment and a relished joy of nature. Bold and outspoken, yet equally laid-back and homey. Stylish and carefree — a little black dress paired with flip-flops.
To visit Lake Charles is to know Louisiana in all its variety. Lake Charles isn’t one flavor — one look. It’s a mixture of cultures and pursuits. Its people, artistically expressive, compassionate about nature, and united in their enthusiasm and eagerness to share. Lake Charles is the best of Louisiana infused into something irresistible. Fresh. A little spicy. And oh, so satisfying.
