Your group will love Southwest Louisiana!

Group Sales MapIs your group considering Louisiana? When it comes to choosing a destination that makes everyone happy, Lake Charles provides a perfect location for groups, reunions, weddings, and other special occasions. Lake Charles is also a perfect location to hub-and-spoke for a Louisiana-Texas combination tour, as we are located just 2.5 Hours from Houston, Texas, and 3.5 Hours from New Orleans. Over 6,000 hotel rooms in Southwest Louisiana offer a wide range of options, services, and amenities for any taste or budget.

One of the most prominent aspects of Cajun and Creole culture and Southern charm is the natural willingness for people to go out of their way to treat company or complete strangers like family. These traits spill over into everything that we do in Lake Charles. Southwest Louisiana is a thriving destination that caters to tastes ranging from casino resorts to the quiet greens of award-winning golf courses to hunting and fishing adventures and fun festivals and events.

Indulge in world-famous Cajun and Creole cuisine and soak in live Cajun French, Zydeco, and alternative music. Celebrate a family-friendly Mardi Gras and view the world’s largest collection of Mardi Gras costumes, on rotating display during Mardi Gras Season. Year-Round, and exclusively for groups, learn the traditions behind King Cake by participating in a King Cake decorating class. Explore the charm and rich history of Southwest Louisiana in the Charpentier Historic District and area museums. Take a drive along the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road, one of only 57 designated scenic byways in the USA.

Whether your group is looking for serene settings with a natural backdrop of marshes and bayous or a high-end casino resort experience, you can count on our staff to steer you in the right direction and provide first-class complimentary planning assistance from custom itineraries to bidding accommodations, providing photography and video for your use in selling, booking step-on guides, group meal functions, attractions and entertainment booking, and much more.
