Why Lake Charles?

One of the most prominent aspects of Cajun culture and Southern charm is the natural willingness for people to go out of their way to treat company or complete strangers like family. That spills over into everything that we do. From unique experiences with our authentic Cajun cuisine, culture and music to side trips along the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road or attractions in our Charpentier Historic District or anything in between, we have a destination that caters to many tastes. We have Mardi Gras tour programs and the Southwest Louisiana Boudin Trail where people can taste Southwest Louisiana's most delicious finger food.
